Do I need to obtain a permit to repair my septic system?
In most cases, yes; the reason is to ensure that the person making the repairs is experience and understand the correct procedures and processes for repairing that particular system. B&L Septic works with municipal areas, homes, and businesses to ensure the entire process follows the necessary regulations.
How often will my system need to be pumped?
While it varies by how large the tank is and how many people live in the residence or use the system, the average is every 3 to 5 years.
What does a routine maintenance appointment involve?
A routine maintenance contract includes three inspections per year to check for proper function. Any repair, pumping, and chlorine expenses are the responsibility of the property owner. There are different levels of maintenance to choose from, and we will help you choose the right one for you.
If I suspect my septic system is flooded, what should I do?
If the tanks are covered with water, do not use the system, as this overflow becomes waste water and won’t be treated, creating a source of pollution. You should conserve as much water as possible while the flooding goes down, and use caution when opening the tank for pumping when the soil is saturated. It’s important to not only control the water flow, but to prevent and avoid contamination. Contact B&L Septic and we will come out to make the needed repairs as soon as possible.
