What Are Septic Tanks?

Septic tanks are an essential component of any rural or suburban home that isn’t connected to municipal sewage systems. These underground tanks collect and treat wastewater from your home’s plumbing system. Wastewater enters the tank, where solids settle to the bottom, forming sludge. At the same time, lighter waste, like oils and grease, rises to the top to form scum. The liquid in between, called effluent, flows out into the drain field for further natural filtration.

Understanding the structure and functionality of septic tanks is crucial for homeowners. Regular maintenance and timely inspections can prevent the build-up of sludge and scum and prolong your system’s lifespan. Ignoring such care can lead to backups, malfunctions, and costly repairs.

A & J took the time to explain our catch basin and drain system to really help us feel more educated about what we are dealing with. They gave us some ideas that were not even part of their services and also rodded out our drain lines and supplied a video showing them crystal clear. I would recommend them to any homeowner in need of drain or septic service.

Comprehensive Septic Inspections for Peace of Mind

Regular septic inspection services are vital for maintaining the correct and efficient operation of your system. A&J Sewer Service offers thorough inspection services that assess every component of your system, from the tank itself to the drain field and associated pipework. Our experts use visual and physical inspections to identify any potential issues, such as leaks, blockages, or damage, that could impact system performance.

Scheduling regular inspections with our professionals can save you from unexpected failures and expensive repairs. We provide detailed reports that help you understand the condition of your septic system and can recommend any necessary maintenance or upgrades.

In the state of Illinois, homeowners are required to have their systems inspected by a licensed contractor. Give us a call, and we will inspect the condition and components of your tank and system to ensure the system is functioning properly.

How Often Should You Schedule Septic Inspections?

One of the most common questions homeowners have is how often they should have their septic system inspected. Generally, it is recommended to schedule an inspection at least every three years. However, the exact frequency can vary based on several factors, including the size of your household, the amount of wastewater generated, the volume of solids in the wastewater, and your septic tank size.

For households that use a garbage disposal, for instance, inspections might be needed more frequently, as the system has to handle a greater volume of solids. A&J Sewer Service can help you determine the optimal inspection schedule based on your specific circumstances.

Expert Septic Riser Installations

Installing septic risers can greatly enhance the accessibility and serviceability of your septic tank. Risers bring the tank’s access points to or above ground level, making it easier for maintenance and inspections without digging. A&J Sewer Service specializes in the professional installation of septic risers. All of our installations are completed with precision and care, thereby adding convenience and reducing future service costs.

Our expert team will help you choose the right risers for your system and handle the installation process from start to finish. This upgrade not only simplifies routine tasks but also increases the safety of your system by making it more accessible for professional upkeep.
