Emergency Tank Pumping

When one of the knowledgeable experts at Double JP Septic arrives for your appointment, they will begin by removing the manhole cover and inserting a large hose connected from the tanker truck into your septic tank. As the high-powered vacuum equipment goes to work removing interior debris through suction, the qualified technician on duty will often use a muckrake in order to dislodge solids and stir them with the tank’s liquid contents so the pumping process will operate more smoothly.

Preparing Your Septic Tank for Pumping

  1. Locate and Uncover Access Lids: Begin by identifying and exposing the access lids of your septic tank. This will allow our technicians at Double JP Septic easy access to the tank for inspection and pumping.
  2. Clear Surrounding Area: Remove any debris, vegetation, or obstacles in the vicinity of the septic tank. Creating a clear and unobstructed workspace ensures a safe environment for our team and facilitates a smoother pumping process.
  3. Access Lid Accessibility: Ensure that access lids are not only located but are also easily accessible. Clear any objects covering the lids to allow our technicians straightforward entry to the septic tank.
  4. Inform About Issues: Communicate any specific issues or concerns you may have been experiencing with your septic system. Providing this information helps our team tailor the pumping service to address your system’s unique needs.
  5. Coordinate Location Information: Clearly communicate the location of your septic tank to our team. This coordination ensures efficient service delivery and helps our technicians promptly locate and address your septic system.

By following these steps, you contribute to the effectiveness of the septic pumping process and promote the overall health and functionality of your septic system with the expertise of Double JP Septic.

Septic Tank System Maintenance Tips

  • Decrease your water usage – High-efficiency plumbing appliances like faucets and toilets can significantly reduce the amount of water flowing into your septic system. You can also decrease water usage by staying on top of repairs for things like leaks and drips, which cause your tank to fill up at a faster rate.
  • Reduce solid waste – The best way to decrease solid waste is to avoid flushing anything down your drains that will physically burden your septic tank system. Flushing items like wipes or feminine products can do a lot of damage. It is best to stick with solely flushing toilet paper. Throw leftovers in the trash rather than using a garbage disposer, which moves organic food waste into your septic tank system.
  • Funnel water flows away from your drain field – Pay attention to potential downspouts and your property’s landscape grading; oftentimes, this is how water is funneled directly onto your septic system’s drain field and compromises its water dispersal ability.
  • Avoid emptying hot tubs or pools into your drain system – This will put unnecessary physical stress on your septic tank system and impede its functioning. Always drain the contents of a pool or hot tub into your yard, away from the drain field.
  • Do not pour chemicals down your drain – Chemical substances can hinder the important bacterial process that occurs within your septic tank. Pouring chemicals down the drain can prevent helpful bacteria from breaking down the solid accumulated inside your septic system.
