Septic Tank Hydro Jetting


Hydro Jetting is a procedure using pressurized water on the end of a jetting line to clean the septic tank, its piping and laterals. It helps get rid of any form of waste product which clogs the lines. Cleaning the septic tank on a regular basis is important since otherwise it starts malfunctioning. The main aim is to help the tank filter prevent sludge from dumping the septic drain field lines.

During regular maintenance of a septic tank we use hydro jetting to loosen up debris within the pipes and laterals of the septic system. The septic system, over time, becomes clogged with debris from hair, soap residue, grease, and more. Once this debris is broken up and removed from the pipes a pumper truck vacuums all of the disturbed waste out of the septic tank and pipes. Once complete the entire system will be clean and ready to use. This regular maintenance will ensure the system gets the maximum amount of life.

Pumping / Maintenance


It is imperative to maintain any system to stop it from malfunctioning. Similarly, maintenance of your septic tank system is very essential to have a smooth drainage system. It ensures efficient service as well as well as reduces sudden expenses for replacement. Every septic tank has a maximum limit of waste and daily sewage flow it can handle. Exceeding the limit regularly can overload the system and often causes the system to fail. The system accepts newer waste materials faster than getting rid of the old ones. This causes the drainage system to become saturated.

Regular pumping and inspection of the septic tank is important to keep the system in good working order. The time difference between pumping is totally daily sewage flow and the wastewater characteristics. While most tanks only require pumping every 2-3 years it is very common to need pumping on an annual basis. Failure to pump a septic tank when needed can result in solid waste and/or grease overflowing into the drain files which will cause it to clog and stop working properly. It requires special equipment and trained personal to properly drain and inspect a septic tank. Which is why this work should only be done by professionals.
