Septic System Services in Polk County MO
There are thousands of onsite sewage disposal systems (septic systems) currently being used in Missouri. Septic systems are the best way for rural property owners to treat their wastewater and sewage. While these are relatively simple systems they must be maintained properly if you'd like to get many years of service from your septic system. One of the best ways to maintain your system is to have all of the solids pumped out every 3 to 5 years. This protects your tank and septic field from sludge build-up and keeps the system operating efficiently.

Septic Tank Pumping Polk County MO
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 at it's best. Your septic tank should be pumped out every 3-5 years depending on how many bathrooms you have, how many people are in your household, and how much use your septic 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 the sludge layer (on the bottom).
We pump out ALL solids and liquid from your tank. When appropriate we also backflush into your tank to loosen up all of the sludge and solids in the bottom of the tank so we can ensure a proper septic pump out! Many septic pumping companies do not take this extra step but it's the right way to pump a tank!
Lift Station Pumping Polk County MO
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 (this is usually uphill) in your system through a pressurized line. These are relatively simple systems but they also 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 regularly.
