"WAITED TOO LONG"
Stacy called because she had sewage backing up into her showers. Upon inspection, we found a clog in one of the pipes, causing the septic system to fail. The clog was due to grease and detergent being put down the drain and accumulating since the was the last time it had been pumped years ago.

"THE HOUSE OF 5 WOMEN"
John is a husband and father of 4 daughters and called us in a panic because he was experiencing back-ups in their toilets. When our team went out for inspection, they opened up the septic tank lid and hundreds of cotton balls and loads of toilet paper started spilling out of the top, causing it to spread all over the yard. John’s lovely wife and daughters had been throwing their cotton balls and extra toilet paper down the toilet over the last 4 years, and it built up and helped clog up their septic system.

"BABY WIPES, GROWN-UP PROBLEMS"
Joe had a system that kept backing up even though the system had already been redone within the past 2 years. There was major clogging in the filter due to baby wipes being flushed down the toilet(s) from renters over the course of 2 years.

"THAT'S NOT WHAT THAT'S FOR"
An older couple contacted because they couldn’t understand why they were having sewage backing up in their home. At first, it was believed that the drain field was bad, however, after the tank had been fully pumped by our team, it was discovered there were hundreds of condoms clogging the pipes so badly the water couldn’t get out into the drain field.

3 days after moving into a new rental property, a young girl in her early 20’s woke up to standing raw sewage throughout her house with all her packed boxes and belongings sitting in the mess. Because the tank hadn’t been inspected before moving in, the new renter had no idea running the showers, sinks, and toilets would cause the septic tank to fail and spill out into the home.

Septic system was in alarm. The customer called several different companies, but none were available to come out for days! Knowing her tank had not been pumped out, we also knew this would cause a HUGE mess. So we got her an appointment immediately and her septic system working for her in no time.

"FIRST YOU NO-SEE-UM, NOW YOU DON'T"
Our customer could not get rid of the infestation of gnats and no-see-um bugs coming from the toilets and drains. Our service truck came to pump the septic tank and steam jet / pressure wash all of the drains and the tank to get rid and kill off any eggs.

Share YOUR Tale From the Tank
Called at 8PM on a Wednesday night with Septic concerns, they were out at 12:30 the next day (only a half hour into their four hour window) and were finished in less than an hour. Very reasonably priced considering the prompt service. Thanks!
