Septic Line Cleaning
Like with any pipe system that overall success of the system has a lot to do with how effectively fluid can pass through the pipes. If the water or wastes in this cannot go from your home to the septic tank to the septic drain field properly you are bound to have a problem. Sure, it can be fixed by cleaning out and unclogging the lines that cover the system. There are plenty of ways that we can go about doing that. It is really going to depend on how clogged up the line really is that we are going to choose to clean it out one way or another.
Spotting The Troubled Line
Most of the times people will ask for this service because they believe that they may have a line that is clogged up. Other times we are actually the ones that recommend the service after going through inspection. If there is a line that has a problem what we want to do is single out that specific line and put our efforts into unclogging that particular line instead of having to go through the whole system trying to find where the problem is!
One of the clear indications that you have a septic line problem is if you are seeing backflow. For those of you who do not know what backflow is, it is when water that is supposed to come run one way runs the other way. What does this cause? In most cases, dirty water and wastes will either mix with clean water. This type of problem can go way beyond just not allowing your toilets to flush it can turn into a real health hazard! In other cases, you can literally see the dirty water flowing into your home or a place on your lawn.
One of the most simple ways that we can actually help your lines stand up the wear and tear that just comes with use is applying chemicals that effectively lubricate the pipes and give both liquids and solids a better chance to flow through the pipeline freely. This type of chemicals can be applied even if you don’t have a problem on deck. We highly recommend that proud owners of very old septic tanks actually try and do more for their systems. Applying these types of chemicals can be an easy and quick way to do just that!
Full Septic Line Replacement
At times even though we try our hardest to try and get these septic systems to work properly we literally cannot do anything to save some of your existing lines. What we will recommend is that case is that you allow us to fully replace the line by installing a new one in its place. This process will usually take a bit longer than a normal cleaning service, and we truly only rely on it when we feel that the existing line is going to keep bringing you trouble no matter how much we clean it!
