Septic Tank Cleaning: Edmonton's Essential

The state of our septic tank isn't often at the forefront of our minds. Usually, the only time we give it any thought is when it fills up, and even then, only because it's causing problems. Until then, thoughts concerning the state of the septic tank remain as buried as the tank itself.

When the time eventually comes to have it cleaned out, it's not a job we can do ourselves. The work requires professional know-how and powerful machinery. This means giving septic tank cleaning services a call.

If the time has finally come, read on to find out everything you need to know about the process.

Septic Tank Care

There are a few different types of septic tanks, but no matter what type you need help with, it's time to call in the professionals. Whether it's a commercial or residential septic tank you're dealing with, the process is much the same. Only the scale tends to differ.

The prospect of septic tank maintenance, despite it being a consideration few of us make until it's necessary, is an important one. Without regular or at least timely cleaning, there's a chance the tank in question may fall into disrepair. A septic tank that ceases to do its job properly is a liability for more than the chance of a plumbing emergency, especially when reminded of its price.

It's safe to say that maintaining your septic tank is a good idea and a preventative measure your future self is sure to thank you for. If you're unsure of the current state of your septic tank or when the last time it got cleaned out was, now's the time to get it checked out.

The Cleaning Process

Once the professionals arrive, they'll inspect and assess the situation. This means locating where the tank is and its access point. If the tank hasn't been cleared out for a long time, this can require some detective work.

The solid waste is then pumped out through the access point, typically using a high-powered vacuum located on the back of a specially designed truck. Once all the waste has been extracted, it's transported to a wastewater treatment facility to be processed.

Once the waste is out of the way, the structure of the septic tank and its inlet and outlet points are checked over to ensure everything is structurally sound and no repairs or replacements are necessary. If not, they'll fill the tank with enough water to function correctly and reseal, leaving you with the peace of mind of a job well done.
