‚ÄčIt Does Matter Who Provides Septic Tank Cleaning for Your System

The reason for cleaning is removing the solids and inspecting for the baffles (some older systems do not have or require baffles).  Eldredge Septic Companies removes all the solids or provides solutions for all the solids to be removed and checks the baffles.

Our Team would be happy to provide solutions which will help your Septic System last longer. Please Contact Us with any questions or concerns.

Four major factors influence the frequency of pumping:

The number of people in your household, the amount of wastewater generated (based on the number of people in the household and the amount of water used), the volume of solids in the wastewater (for example, using a garbage disposal increases the amount of solids), and septic tank size. Every septic tank requires periodic pumping.

Your Septic System will have excessive solids as a result of not cleaning on a proper maintenance schedule.  The Septic Tank acts as a filter for your absorption area and needs to be cleaned to remove solids.  Solids that build up in the tank can pass into the absorption area if they are not removed from the Septic Tank on a continuous maintenance plan.
