Septic maintenance can extend the life of your septic system, protect water quality, and also help protect the environment!
It is necessary to regularly pump your septic tank; we recommend doing so every 3 years.
Septic System Inspections
A septic inspection is an objective examination of the septic system components. A certified inspection report is often required before the closing of real estate deals.
Why get a septic system inspection?
There are a number of reasons why A-1 Septic Tank Service recommends a septic inspection. These reasons are:
- To ensure you are made aware of any major defects.
- To advise you about the various elements of the septic system, including tank size, incoming and outgoing lines, baffles and filters, as well as the distribution box, pump chamber, and drain field.
- To advise you about how the system works, why it must be maintained, and how to do so.
- To provide an objective perspective about your situation so you can make educated decisions accordingly.
Who should you hire?
Septic inspectors are often referred by family or friends; A-1 Septic Tank Service is a family owned and operated company that has serviced the mid-island area for over 53 years. Be sure the company you hire has experienced, qualified technicians.
When should you call?
Order the inspection after your offer has been accepted and before the conditions of sale are removed. The contract will stipulate the length of time you have to complete the inspection.
What is involved?
What does it cost?
The septic inspection will determine the structural and operational functions of the septic system. Your septic inspector can identify existing and potential problem areas, suggest possible solutions and, where possible, provide estimates for the cost of the work required. You will receive a certified report outlining the inspection findings.
Costs vary depending on a number of factors, including location of the home, age, and services required.
Car Wash Pit Maintenance
Car wash pit maintenance is very important as sludge, odour, and harmful chemicals will build up over time and can overflow should the system be left too long without servicing.
Catch Basin Cleaning
Catch basin cleaning is required because, at its base, there is a sediment sump to retain grit and debris that can cause an overflow should buildup occur.
Grease Trap Cleaning
Our grease trap cleaning services include cleaning, treatment and odour control of grease traps, kitchen drains, galleys, and food processing facilities.
