Septic Filter Install
Septic tanks collect waste water and solids, which are then broken down by bacteria. The resulting effluent is then discharged into your septic bed (sometimes called leaching field). Septic filters are now required by the Ontario building code, in order to prevent solids from clogging the leaching field lines. Septic filters need to be cleaned every 6-9 months, in order to prevent them from becoming overwhelmed and clogged. We offer a septic filter installation service as well as a septic filter cleaning program which is designed to take the hassle out of this necessary task, so you can rest assured that your septic system is running smoothly.

Septic Tank Pumping
Although we don’t pump septic tanks, your septic tank should be pumped every 3-5 years to be properly maintained. The timeframe between each pumping is usually determined by the size of the tank, how many people live in your house and the age of your system. A septic tank separates the waste into three parts; at the top, you will find a thicker “cake like area”, this is where the lighter stuff floats to the top and thickens over time, the middle consists of the wastewater which drains into the leaching field, and at the bottom, you will find the a thicker waste known as sludge. The sludge is what needs to be pumped out of the septic tank. Call one of the recommended professionals for septic tank pumping services.
4 Reasons Why Regular Maintenance of Your Septic is Important
Here are some reasons why regular septic system maintenance is crucial:
Prevent costly repairs: Regular maintenance, such as pumping the tank every 3-5 years, can help prevent costly repairs or even replacement of the septic system. Neglecting to pump the tank can cause solids to build up and eventually clog the system, leading to backups and potential damage to the tank or drain field.
Avoid health hazards: A poorly maintained septic system can contaminate groundwater and surface water, leading to serious health hazards. Raw sewage contains harmful bacteria, viruses, and parasites that can cause serious illnesses, especially to those with weakened immune systems, such as children and the elderly.
Protect the environment: Septic systems can harm the environment if not properly maintained. If the effluent leaks from the system, it can pollute nearby streams, rivers, and lakes, leading to environmental damage and the loss of aquatic life.
Increase the lifespan of the system: Regular maintenance can help increase the lifespan of your septic system. A well-maintained system can last for decades, while a neglected one may need replacement after only a few years.
