  • QUESTIONS COMMONLY ASKED
  1. Why am I getting a sewer gas smell in the house?. This problem usually occurs in the coldest winter months, due to frosting of the sewer vent pipe on the roof of the house. It can also be due to debris or small animals nesting in the vent pipe. If it's in the basement it's usually a dried out floor drain trap. 
  2. How often should I have my septic tank pumped? And should I have the pump tank done at the same time?. In the state code 7080.2450 the owner or owners agent shall regularly, but in no case less frequently than 3 years assess the system for defects, measure and remove accumulations of materials. Removal of materials must be through the maintenance hole, other methods of removal are not compliant. For most homes assessing of the tanks and pumping them out every 3 years is sufficient. Some of our customers have their tanks pumped every year (usually really old systems). Or some homes with 4 or more people will have it done every 2 years. I usually ask people how long they would go without checking the oil in their car or truck. Your Sewage Treatment System needs to be looked at and maintained just like your car or truck.
  3. I hear that only mound type systems are allowed in my county?.  This is false, all of the Counties that we do work in allow other types of systems (gravity flow trench's etc.). But all sites are soil specific as to what type of system can be installed. This is determined by doing soil analysis to determine what the depth to the periodically saturated soil level is.
