Dependable Septic Tank Cleaning and Maintenance in Bremerton
The materials that you flush and send down drains affect the septic system’s capacity and performance. Liquids and toilet waste are biologically processed into effluent, but proteins, fats, grease, and many solids remain and float on the surface, accumulating until they are removed. Likewise, flushable items like wipes, and bulky material like toilet paper wads sink to the bottom of the tank and remain. At some point, usually after 3-5 years of operation, we provide septic pumping to remove the floating and sinking components of your tank’s contents, while effluent keeps flowing into your leach field. One exception is when the natural bacteria are reduced by harmful cleaning chemicals, and a septic tank cleaning and septic pumping are required for a full reset.
A typical septic system handles 250 to 300 gallons of waste and water from your home each day, so it needs to be in great shape to keep operating for years. Management of the waste that enters your pipes helps, and our septic plumbing team can provide helpful information about what gets naturally processed, what will eventually need septic pumping, and what can harm the bacteria that make your septic system work. We can also provide experienced septic plumbing services to ensure that your system doesn’t release unhealthy sewage from its pipes, keeps foul odors out of the air around and inside your home, and prevents messy drain backups from your toilets and drains. Our experts are here for you if your system gets damaged from age or accidents like driving over the system, repairing tank, leach field, and other components promptly.

When your septic system needs a fresh start, septic tank cleaning can clear out the chemicals, debris, and undesirable matter that may be affecting its operation. Our plumbers can then manage the reestablishment of a proper balance in the tank, and help you keep it that way for the long term. Periodic inspection, testing, and even management of bacteria with the addition of supportive materials to the tank can all help keep your septic system a finely tuned waste processing system. Most of all, we are here to help avoid system failure, which can result in health hazards, groundwater contamination, and expensive repairs or even tank replacement.
