Septic Pumping

We come out and pump out your tank, removing all effluent and solid material for proper disposal. We then perform a complete evaluation of your tank and sewer lines, inspect, clean or replace filter screens, and ensure your entire septic system operates properly.


RV / Campsite Services

We provide convenient honeywagon service for RV and camper pump outs. We pump over 1000 RV’s a year and have the expertise and equipment to handle any type of job. When dump stations are not available, give us a call to assist with both black and grey water tanks.


System Maintenance

To operate properly your septic system needs regular tank cleaning every 1 to 3 years depending on your household water use. After evaluating your situation, we’ll help you set up a regular cleaning schedule and a yearly inspection if you like. BioFORCE Conditioner programs are available.


Access Riser Installation

To make servicing your septic tank easier, as well as saving on a traditional digging cost, we can install a riser. A septic tank riser is simply a concrete or plastic pipe that runs up from the pump-out access ports to about ground level.

Signs You Need Your Septic Tank Pumped

It’s Time

Service every 1 to 3 years is best to keep your system working properly. Your regular service provider reminds you when it’s time, or you can call us and we’ll see if it’s time.

Sluggish drains & toilets

When your drains and toilets are slower or just aren’t operating as usual, it’s a good sign you need your tank pumped, before real damage occurs.

Stinky-Icky Odors

When odor-causing gasses start coming out of your toilets, drains, outdoor septic tank area or your drainfield, it’s more than a gross clue- it’s unhealthy.

Really green grass over drainfield

If the grass over your drainfield is looking a lot better than the rest of the lawn, it could be getting a little extra “fertilizer” in the form of excessive waste liquid backing up in your system.

Standing water

Pooling water over and near the drainfield is a serious indication that, at the very least, you need your septic system pumped and inspected immediately. You will more than likely also notice a distinct sewage odor.

Excessive nitrates in well water

Well water should be tested at least once a year. If higher than normal nitrate levels are detected, it can be an indication waste water is overflowing your septic system and into your drinking water… major yuck.

Sewage backup

If you aren’t on a regular maintenance schedule and ignore all the previous signs, having raw sewage backup into your home could become a reality. Kinda disgusting, but true.

Quick Tip: Avoid putting household hazardous wastes, plastics or anything anti-bacterial in sinks or toilet. This keeps the natural bio-processes healthy and functioning properly.
