Common Repairs ..that we do... include:
1. Risers and lids
The latest code requires access to the tank to be “at or above grade”. No more burying tank lids. If you need new risers and lids installed, contact us today.
2. Mainline repair “belly”
A belly in a line is typically caused from settling or uncompacted soil upon installation. A belly in a line and slow the flow of liquids and solids into the tank and cause a build-up over time. We can repair the section with the belly using schedule 40 pipe to ensure it does not return.
3. Outlet line settling, outlet Tee.
A settling outlet line will cause problems with the system. It will cause the outlet Tee to raise as much a 5-6 inches; causing the tank to overfill. This puts stress on the back wall of the tank, traps odors from releasing through the vent stack, and can cause the tank to leak through the outlet hole. If your pumper says your outline line has settled, get it fixed immediately!
4. Distribution box
Your distribution box (d-box) is the vital for the long term success of your leach field. Many times, a d-box will become out of level; causing the effluent water to run to the same section of your field.
Your distribution box must be level. If you suspect your field is wet on one side, and dry on the other, your d-box needs attention. Contact us today.
5. Pump, floats, and alarm box
Pumps never tell you when they are going.. They just go. Your alarm should buzz or ring when your the water level reached the top of the pump tank. We can replace your pump with a high quality pump in no time.
Sometimes, our clients are told their pump is out when it is simply a float that is out. Over the years they can become water logged. We can replace the entire float tree.
Further, the alarm boxes can have a mind of their own. The County codes have changed with the technology coming to the On-site Waste Water Industry. Contact us if you need a new alarm box, or any other pump services.
6. New Septic Tank
Concrete septic tanks do not last forover. Any crack in the concrete, or signs on rotten concrete, thining walls etc., will mean your system is due for a new tank. We have started using poly tank and think the world of them. If your have been told you need a new tank, contact us for pricing!
7. New Leach Field (Drain Field)
Overtime, your leach field may become saturated; and may not percolate or drain into the soil at a rapid enough rate to keep up with you and family water usage. You can spot this by water surfacing to the grass on your field; or the field becoming mushy and foreign plants start to grow. Or, your system starts to back-up into your basement. If any of these are the case, you likely will need a new leach field. Contact us today to get started on the process.
