septic cleaning at residential property

Septic tanks are common in many parts of the Okanagan. Many homes have no connection to a public sewer line.

This alternative is a good option, but it does require certain forms of maintenance. Your septic tank needs to be pumped and cleaned regularly to maintain its capabilities and provide a good sewer alternative.

vacuum truck back

The name vacuum truck sounds impressive, even a bit sci-fi!

No, it’s not something you use to clean really big carpets in mansions or to capture otherworldly apparitions Ghostbusters style. These vacuum trucks are used for septic cleaning in private residences, hydrovac daylighting and a number of other useful projects.

The Municipal Water Use Report from 2011 showed that around 12.5% of Canadian households use a septic system, with their number steadily growing. Septic systems come with various benefits and their increase in popularity is understandable.

However, septic tanks need to be maintained properly and, even then, they have to be pumped so that they don’t overflow or get clogged. This is something that has to be done at minimum every 3 years but, even then, there is no guarantee that issues won’t arise.

Chances are pretty good that you are either trying to find as much information as possible before installing a new septic tank system, or you are experiencing a septic problem.

Septic systems can be beneficial to both their users and the environment, but only if they’re properly maintained. Unfortunately, there are some misconceptions out there regarding septic system, and because of these some people either shy away from going into a home with septic system (as opposed to sewer lines) or aren’t properly maintaining their systems.
