Septic Tank Cleaning Athens GA

Thorough septic tank cleaning helps ensure your system continues to run in top form and enables the technician to examine everything in the tank to make sure it’s in good condition. Both of these are imperative steps in protecting your home and extending the life of your system. The partner technicians of Septic Tank Pros Athens GA have the experience and professionalism to ensure your next septic tank cleaning goes off without a hitch.

When is Septic Cleaning Done?

A septic system cleaning is usually performed as part of your regular pumping service. A good rule of thumb is to schedule it every 3-5 years, but you may need yours pumped and cleaned more often if a lot of people use it or if you’re a homeowner with a garbage disposal. If you’ve just purchased a home in the Athens area and don’t know when your tank was last pumped and cleaned, it’s a good idea to schedule it right away.

What Happens During Septic Tank Cleaning?

The septic tank cleaning service technicians begin by locating and opening up access to your tank, which usually involves a bit of digging. All the contents are pumped out, including the bottom layer of “sludge” that forms over time. Once everything is removed, the tank is cleaned out with water, which may include the use of high-pressure sprayers. After it is clean, the technician performs an inspection to make sure everything looks good and your system should be ok for another 3-5 years. This involves checking the pipes inside the tank, as well as the baffles, and making sure the tank, itself, hasn’t cracked or been compromised by a root system.

How Long Does Septic System Cleaning Take?

The length of time it takes will vary based on the size of your tank and how long it has been since it was cleaned and pumped last. Smaller tanks of around 500-1,000 gallons can often be completed in around 30 minutes, but other tanks, especially those used in commercial or industrial settings, can be as big as 5,000 gallons. Naturally, these take considerably more time to complete. This is in addition to the time it takes to locate the tank and dig. If you know your own soil and know how deep down the tank is, you can include this in your time estimate for the entire process. It’s also worth noting that the sludge will harden over time, so cleaning it becomes more difficult if you wait longer than the standard 3-5 years.
