Basic Service Maintenance Guidelines For The Portland Area.
Tanks need to be pumped every three to five years, depending on use. If the tank gets too full, particles of scum or sludge will flush out of the tank. This material will clog the drain field and can cause the septic system to fail. The tank should be cleaned completely, leaving nothing in the tank. Make sure the baffles are inspected and that the tank is checked for leaks. We also are able to clean out your septic tank pipes which can get clogged up over time as well. A restricted pipe bringing waste to the septic tank can cause slow draining issues.

Septic Service Option That Sets Us Apart.
There are times during our septic inspection and servicing that we find the drainfield has become compacted, plugged and not doing its job. That is when drainfield replacement becomes a real possibility. Now there are too many factors to give a firm number on the cost, but let’s just say the cost is in the thousands of dollars. We have a machine, the Terra Lift (one of 2 in the entire state) that has the capability to rejuvenate and restore your drainfield to back to useful service. That could save you thousands of dollars.
