Septic Tank Pumping Idaho Springs Colorado

We are experts in the removal of septic tanks. This is an important part of maintaining your system's health. It depends on how many bathrooms your house has, how many people live in it, and how often your system is used.

We can provide an accurate recommendation for how often you should pump the tank after inspecting it and pumping it. It will depend on the tank's condition, the amount of scum (on the top ). and the depth (on the bottomspan>.

If necessary, we will backflush the tank to remove any liquid or solids. This will enable us to properly pump the septic system.

Lift Station Pumping Idaho Springs Colorado

Your septic system may have a lift station. The sewage from your building or home is then discharged into the pit (The Wet Well). The Afloat switch activates when the pit reaches a certain point. It pumps the sewage to the next destination, usually uphill.

Septic System Repairs Idaho Springs Colorado

Are your septic systems failing? Are you experiencing wastewater buildup on your property? Is your shower or tub drain clogged with sewer? Do you notice foul odors in the vicinity of your septic tank? To continue effectively treating and dispersing wastewater, septic systems must be maintained. Septic systems can become a problem if they are not properly maintained or abused.

We can fix:

  • Clogged or backup septic systems
  • Septic dose pumps
  • Distribution boxes for septic systems
  • Septic filter installation/cleaning/replacement
  • Broken septic tank baffles
  • Broken or cracked septic pipes
  • Septic alarms, float switches
  • Septic tank risers

We have a 2500 gallon vacuum truck and a 3800 gal vacuum truck are available. We can pump grease traps, lift stations, and septic tanks of various sizes without making multiple trips. We can send two trucks if your tank is larger than our truck's capacity. We can pump your tank no matter how large it is.

This is a great question we get asked often. It's a good idea to have your tank pumped every 3 to 5 years. Your septic tank may need to be pumped more often if you live in a larger house with multiple bathrooms and a large family. Commercial properties should be pumped every year or have their septic system inspected at least once a year.

Pumping any septic tank that is part of a real estate deal is a smart idea. Before you buy a home or property with a septic system, make sure it is pumped and inspected.

In our Central Colorado service area, there are many types of septic systems. Before we can pump or service your system, it is helpful to know which type you have.

  • Conventional Septic Systems

  • Chamber Systems.

  • Drip Distribution Systems

  • Aerobic Treatment Units

  • Mound Systems.

We can tell you what kind of system you have if you don't know when you arrive.

That's a great question! For a family of four, it's usually every 3-5 years. Pump-outs can be more frequent if you have multiple bathrooms or a suite. Other than the time between each pump-out, there are other indicators you should look for.

  • Are you experiencing sewage backups in your home?

  • Are you noticing foul odors coming from your tanks and septic fields?

  • Are you seeing water seeping into your septic tank?

Another way to determine if your tank is full of scum or sludge is to remove the lid. The scum layer should be at the top of your tank. It should not exceed 8-10 inches in depth. The sludge layer is at the bottom of your tank. It should not be more than 12 inches in depth. You can check these levels with a pipe length of at least 10 feet or any other measuring tool. If you need septic pumping services, we can help.

All of our trucks come with 200 feet of vacuum hose. We can pump out your septic tanks if we can get our truck within 200 feet of them. If the distance is more than 200 feet, we can send our driver with extensions. As it is easy for a heavy septic truck to get stuck in the grass, we try to stay off of your grass. Please let the driver know if you have a preferred route that you would like us to take on your property.

Yes. We do. We can perform a complete septic inspection if you have any questions or are experiencing problems with your system. We can inspect the tank and drain fields, as well as the pump and distribution boxes.

Although we can sometimes pump out your RV in certain circumstances, we try to avoid doing so. We might be able to help you if your RV is located on a route that we already service or in an RV park we already serve. You can call our office at (720) 312 7084 if your RV needs to be pumped.

Absolutely not! We are often called out to clean out septic tanks that are overflowing into customers' homes on a nearly weekly basis. Baby wipes can often cause problems. While a few wipes won't cause any problems, a large number of wipes can clog up your system and cause backups as well as potential damage. This is a bad idea.
