If you are not familiar with septic tanks you might wonder what could possibly require service.

We have been in business in the area for more than 25 years, and are familiar with the rules, regs and changes that are involved with modern septic tanks.
The septic tank was developed as a more sanitary alternative to cesspools and outhouses. Old-style septic tanks utilize a simple gravity feed to direct sewage from homes or businesses into a holding tank. There, baffles contain the solid waste and allow liquids to flow on out of the tank into a leach field where impurities can be filtered out naturally. In recent years, there has developed a growing concern that this method might be insufficient to capture disease-causing microbes. To help clean the fluid, filters have been installed or retrofitted to many septic systems. Another concern has been that in some locations in Washington state, the ground water table might be too high for safe septic tank operation. In those areas, new septic tanks are built on a mound. This requires waste to be pumped into the tank. As you can see, there are many parts to any septic tank. A service visit helps keep your home septic system continue smooth operations.
