We serve homes and businesses, and we’re available any time of the day or night, because we know that when a septic system issue arises, time is of the essence! Acting fast to resolve a septic system problem can save you hundreds of dollars, maybe even thousands!

Caring for your septic system is one of the most important things you can do for your home. Homeowners are responsible for the parts of their septic systems that are on their property, so even if your drainage system ties into a city or county sewage system, the pipes and/or tanks that are buried underneath your yard, landscaping and patios are your responsibility! Doing regular maintenance and septic system service is the only way to ensure that your part of the septic system is running like it should be.
Too late, many homeowners realize that there are many septic system services available to them from Roto-Rooter.
We recommend that you have your septic system inspected at minimum every 3 years. It won’t cost you an arm and a leg to get a Roto-Rooter professional out to your home, but this time period will give you a good idea about what shape your system is in and how long it will be before you need service, maintenance or repairs.
Roto-Rooter recommends that our customers have their septic tanks pumped out every three to five years. The frequency with which we recommend your tank gets pumped out depends on several factors, including the size of your septic tank, the amount of wastewater your home generates, and how many people live in your home.
If your septic system develops a leak or incurs some kind of damage, Roto-Rooter has a team of trained plumbers and technicians who troubleshoot and repair problems quickly and efficiently. Repairing a septic system is a job that should only be done by highly trained professionals with experience in this particular area. Some independent plumbers have the education and experience to handle septic system repairs, but most do not.
Roto-Rooter will keep records of your inspection results and create a maintenance schedule that is customized for your home’s needs. However, we recommend that you keep a record of when your septic tank was inspected, what the results were, and when it needs to be serviced again. Staying on top of this information will insure that you are fully knowledgeable of your septic system’s specific needs.
In the time between your scheduled septic system services, you can protect your system from clogs and other issues. Don’t pour grease, paint or harsh chemicals down the kitchen sink, and limit the food and other debris that get washed down. In the bathroom, don’t flush items like feminine hygiene products, paper towels or dental floss down the toilet. All these things can clog your septic system, which is only meant to handle human waste and toilet paper. Other items do not break down appropriately and can remain intact in your septic tank until it is pumped the next time.
You can also limit your water usage to preserve your septic tank and extend the time between scheduled pumping. Choose the right setting for your washing machine, using only enough water to handle the amount of clothes in the load. You could also consider replacing your toilets, faucets, and showerheads with high efficiency ratings in order to conserve water.
Your Roto-Rooter professional can give you many more tips to protect your septic system, such as not parking or driving over land where septic tanks or lines are buried. Also, you will inevitably be advised to plant trees far away from these lines and to consider removing existing trees that could damage the lines and tank with their roots.
Beyond these helpful tips, it’s best to call Roto-Rooter for all your septic system services!
