Cause of septic system failure is deterioration of the septic tank outlet baffle. Baffles are replaced with non corroding PVC units.
If your septic tank access lid is underground it must be constantly dug up for maintenance and may allow ground water to enter your system. Adding risers and surface lids makes servicing easier and more economical and helps maintain your system.
The connecting line between your septic tank and absorption area may corrode or collapse as it ages. The concrete distribution box may also deteriorate. Both components are replaceable and are common repairs on septic systems over 10 years old.
The drain field is commonly the most expensive portion of a septic system. Its operation can be adversely affected by a lack of septic maintenance, excess ground water, plants, shrubs, vehicle traffic and failed components. Our services include everything from simple pipe/component repair to total system replacement. Please see our New Septic Installation section for more on new Septic Systems.
*Note - If repairs are being made based on a Septic Inspection, we will need a copy of the County 4 page Septic Inspection report. Call our office or click contact us and leave a message for more details.
