Septic System Services in Pine, Colorado
There are over 900,000 septic systems in the state of Colorado with 17,000 more coming online every year. While they are relatively simple systems for treating sewage and wastewater they must be maintained properly if you'd like to get many years of service from your septic system.

We specialize in pumping out septic tanks and holding tanks for residential and commercial property owners. Pumping out the solids and liquid from your septic tank is a part of a regular maintenance program to keep your septic system performing it's best. Your septic tank should be pumped out every 3-5 years depending on how many bathrooms you have, how many people in your household, and how much use your system gets.
After pumping and inspecting your tank we'll be able to provide you with an accurate recommended pumping interval based on the condition of your tank and the depth of your scum layer (on top) and sludge layer (on the bottom).
We pump out ALL solids and liquid from your tank. When appropriate we backflush into your tank to loosen all of the sludge and solids in the bottom so we can ensure a proper septic pump out!
If you have a lift station as part of your septic system the sewage from your home or building is discharged into a pit (The Wet Well). Once the pit fills up to a certain level it engages a float switch that recognizes the tank is full and it will pump the sewage out to it’s next destination (usually uphill) in your system through a pressurized line. These are relatively simple systems but they must be maintained properly in order to keep working efficiently. Part of that routine maintenance is having the solids pumped out of your lift station.
It's is recommended by the Colorado Department of Health that your septic is inspected on an annual basis and pump-outs should occur every 3 to 5 years. If your septic system is causing you problems we can offer detailed inspection services including:
Are you having some trouble with your septic system? Do you have wastewater pooling up on your property? Sewer backing up through your tub or shower drains? Are you starting to notice some foul odors around the area of your septic system? Septic systems need to be properly maintained in order to continue dispersing and treating your wastewater efficiently. If the maintenance is ignored or the septic system is abused then it can lead to expensive problems that need to be fixed.
We Can Fix:
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.

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.
