Our Repair Services

There are many moving parts in your septic system. As such, these points can fail and cause your system to stop functioning. We provide comprehensive septic repair services, so no matter what your issue is, we can correctly identify it and resolve it.

Baffle Replacements

Replacing the baffles in a septic tank is crucial for maintaining the system's efficiency and longevity. Diseased baffles can lead to improper waste separation, causing solids to flow into the drain field and potentially leading to system failure. New baffles can significantly improve the flow of wastewater, ensuring a more effective separation of solids and liquids. Updating the baffles can prevent expensive repairs and replacements in the future, saving homeowners money in the long run. Proper baffle function is essential for environmental protection, as it helps prevent groundwater contamination.

Pump & Distribution Box Replacements

Replacing the pump in the septic tank is crucial for efficient effluent movement to the drain field, preventing backups and ensuring system operation. A malfunctioning pump can lead to waste buildup, damaging the system and posing health risks. Updating the distribution box (D box) is vital for even effluent distribution, preventing overloading and field failure. A compromised D box can cause uneven distribution, leading to system inefficiency and environmental contamination. Regular maintenance and replacement of these components are essential for optimal functionality and environmental safety.

Septic Line Replacement

The lines themselves can become damaged, clogged, or even crushed over time as they are buried underground. This can cause your system to back up and stop working. Our replacement line services follow state and local requirements to make sure you are NSF certified and safe.

Septic Component Replacements

Tank lids and other components will also require repairs and replacements. For example, the tank lid can crack, emitting unpleasant odors and becoming unstable. This can pose a threat to anyone walking on or around your tank. Tank risers are required by law on any new septic system installation. We also recommend them for existing holding tanks to make them safer and easier to access.

The Importance of Maintenance and Repairs Done Right

Septic tanks are sophisticated systems that require many moving parts to run optimally. They also require routine maintenance to prevent possible breakdowns and backups. Plus, a septic system breaking usually means stacking additional issues in your home’s plumbing, causing the entire system to fail to drain properly, backing up sewage. Sewage backing up leads to contaminated groundwater, surface water, and your yard with bacteria, viruses, and foul smells.
