Septic & Cesspool Maintenance
Over time, components of septic systems wear out and the pipes of the leach field will become clogged. Thankfully, when these issues are caught early, the damage is generally minimal and repair costs are low. Even drain cleaning goes quickly and smoothly with hydro-jetting (the use of high-powered water). It is recommended that you schedule a routine cesspool system maintenance regimen for about once every 3 or 4 years.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
Grease Trap Cleaning & Maintenance
Grease traps intercept and collect grease and solid matter from passing through the sewer lines to your cesspool. Traps are useful in commercial drain lines, like restaurants, where waste grease quantity is larger than in home systems. This waste is deposited into a catching system before it reaches the cesspool. If grease traps do not serve their function, grease and waste could accumulate and may cause a blockage in the sewer line. Grease traps should be checked during regular maintenance.
Chemical Additives & Liquid Enzymes
A bacteria treatment can be added to your system to help maintain live bacteria levels. The treatments can be administered monthly. Treatment can be as simple as flushing a pre-measured packet of bacteria/ enzymes down the toilet. You can also have your septic technician add a treatment directly to the system during routine chemical and additive maintenance. If someone has been ill, and on prescription medication, or heavy cleaning has been done, resulting in bleach or bacteria or other harsh chemical use, a bacteria treatment may be a good idea to help bring the system back into balance. Never allow or introduce solvents or paint thinners enter your system.
