Septic Tank Inspections & Maintenance
TLC’s septic services include septic inspection, because one way to prevent pricy repairs, is to inspect and maintain on a regular basis. Your septic system should be inspected annually, including as soon as the house is put on the market for sale. Likewise, if you are purchasing a new home, it is in your best interest to have the septic tank inspected to avoid any issues that might result from a malfunctioning system.
We own a state-of-the-art diagnostic camera with color recording, as well as a water jetter, that can reach 400 feet. With this tool, we can unthaw frozen pipes, drain fields and tanks and then pump out what may have been unaccessible to other companies not fit with these tools. Our Vac Tron Trailer and a Hydro-Excavation Truck enables us to clean storm drains, vacuum, and sumps and then haul away any type of material.
Drain Field Repair
After the drain field has been used for a long time, the system can begin to break down and create build-up, compromising the septic tank — rejuvenation allows the soil to absorb the waste water once more.
We recommend contacting us right away, as drain field leaks or backups are the type of problems you’ll want to address before it becomes something much more costly. TLC’s rejuvenation process exhausts drain fields quickly without costly excavation and replacement. Using a long, narrow probe and an integral pneumatic hammer to penetrate the soil to depths of from 3 to 6 feet. It then forces air into the soil at a controllable rate, fracturing the soil, and creating an aerobic condition. Because air tends to follow the path of least resistance, the air will move horizontally and vertically through the soil.
Keep your eye out for any of the following symptoms:
Soft spots on your lawn
Sewage leaking out of drain field
Sewage backing up into your home
Slow flushing or gurgling toilets
Sewer smell around your yard
Septic Tank Pumping
If you are unsure when the septic system on your property was last pumped, it’s vital to get an assessment in order to avoid potential problems. Most septic tanks have a large capacity, but sludge build-up will eventually reach its limit and if the tank is not pumped properly, system failure will occur and result in expensive repairs and health hazards. Our qualified team at TLC Services provide efficient and reliable tank pumping services that keep your system running smoothly.
