Septic Tank Pumping Grimes County, Texas
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!
Lift Station Pumping Grimes County, Texas
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.
