The Important Steps Involved in Septic Repairs and Maintenance

The Important Steps Involved in Septic Repairs and Maintenance

You do not want to worry about the possibility of a septic emergency in which your tank backs up into your yard, or worse, into your home. The good news is that when you work with a company like Econo West for septic repairs and maintenance, we can help keep your system in top shape. Read on to learn what is involved or just call us now at 661-947-2653.

It All Starts with an Inspection

If you are having an issue today, then we will start by inspecting your system to see what the issue is. If you are calling us for septic maintenance, we will also start with an inspection. In fact, we recommend yearly inspections that can keep your septic system working great.

This inspection will include things like monitoring the amount of scum and sludge within the tank, checking all pipes and connections, and checking the condition of the drain field. An inspection is necessary for us to get a complete idea of what is going on with your septic system.

Next We Clean the System

Septic systems require cleaning once in a while. In most cases, this needs to be done anywhere from once a year to once every three years. It all depends on the size of your tank, the size of the home that uses it, and the age of the unit. We always check scum and sludge levels to ensure that you actually need a pump-out before we move on. We do recommend doing this before it becomes an emergency situation, but we also know that you do not want to pay for services that are not needed.

Repair is the Final Step

Once we have inspected your system and cleaned it, we can complete any repairs that might still be necessary. At Econo West we can help with a wide variety of services including septic odors, overflow or backup of your septic system, poor drain field performance, damage to septic pipes, and much more.

Once we have completed the repair, we can offer advice on how to prevent the need for the repair in the future. As an example, we might suggest that you add enzymes to the tank that can help boost the filtration of waste and extend the time between necessary cleanings.
