    Thorough and Reliable Septic Tank Pumping

    Is your septic tank getting full? Depending on your septic tank setup and how many people live in your home, you will need to pump your septic tank once every 3-5 years. Our septic Tank plumbing services are quick, efficient, and handle by experts. Drain Pro Plumbing Victoria will drain your septic tank and haul away the waste to an approved treatment and processing facility. The consequences of an overly full septic tank can be costly and fragrant, and should not be ignored. Common signs that your septic tank is full and requires septic plumbing are:

    • Pooling water in your yard
    • Slow drains throughout your home
    • Unpleasant odours
    • A backed-up sewer
    • Trouble flushing the toilet
    • An unusually healthy lawn

    If you notice any of the above signs, do not hesitate to contact Drain Pro Victoria to schedule a septic plumbing appointment.

    How Septic Tanks Work

    The purpose of Septic Tanks is to allow for all wastewater from your home to drain from the house. A septic tank separates the oils, grease, and solids from the wastewater into 3 groups:

    • Sludge – heavy material that has entered and settled at the bottom of your septic tank
    • Scum – light liquids that have entered and float to the surface of the septic tank
    • Partially Treated Wastewater – any remaining water that rests in the middle of the septic tank

    Proper operation and regular maintenance of your septic tank will allow it to run smoothly. If solids build up due to poor maintenance, they may enter the drainfield. If the drainfield becomes blocked, it may result in damage to the entire septic tank system.

    The last thing any septic system owner wants is to deal with odours, water pollution and the cost of repairs. Drain Pro Victoria’s septic system plumbing services provide your septic tank with the proper maintenance and care to ensure it continues to operate normally.

    Drain Pro Client Testimonials

    “I made an appointment to have our condos drains checked with a camera. Jason the plumber arrived early and started right away. He had all the drains inspected quickly. Gave a detailed description of any sediment and suggested what should be done but that we were good for a while yet, no pressure to hurry. Will definitely have them back when the time comes.”

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What are some septic system alternatives?2020-08-28T19:55:59+00:00

    Alternative septic systems are often installed in “difficult” sites with conventional methods, but if you find water in your backyard from your septic system, you may need to upgrade or switch from a conventional septic system to something better suited to your area. There are many alternative septic systems that can accommodate sewer line plumbing, treat wastewater and dispose of it properly. Alternative septic systems include raised bed and septic mound systems, aerobic systems, disinfection and even waterless systems.

    The first indicator that you need to switch from a conventional septic system may be that you experience flooding or unusual water gathering in a backyard or field. If you find your conventional septic system is not adequate, it is important to act quickly to avoid being cited or fined for non-compliance.

    Do water softeners damage your septic system?2020-10-19T13:32:08+00:00

    Some people wonder if the use of water softeners will damage their septic system. The real concern over water softeners is not with the water itself, but with the by-product of the softening process. Brine water is created as water softeners do their job of removing minerals from the water. This brine water (also known as water softener regeneration discharge) goes into your septic system.

    Experts disagree on whether the brine water can negatively affect the decomposition of solid matter in a conventional septic system. Some believe it can contribute to drainfield failures and other problems. If you are concerned about the briney by-products of your water softeners, consider investing in a softener system with a large mineral tank. This will allow the brine water to be stored in the tank longer, cutting down on the number of times brine is discharged into your septic system.

    You can also use a water softener system that is not timer-based, but on a periodic schedule. This can also help control brine in your septic system, but limiting the number of times per year it is introduced into the septic tank.

    What if I’m on septic and not on a main sewer system? Can you help with septic lines?2020-10-19T13:32:10+00:00

    Yes, most definitely we can help with septic line repair and replacement. Many of the signs in the question above (“How do I know whether I need a sewer line repair or replacement?”) are applicable to septic lines and septic systems as well. The difference, of course, is that with a septic system, your outflow will go into a septic tank and do its full process while on your property, as opposed to having sewer lines take it away. Signs of a failing septic line are much the same as signs of a failing sewer line. Should you experience the signs of septic line failure, count on Drain Pro for septic line repair.

    How often should I get my septic tank pumped?2020-10-19T13:33:14+00:00

    Depending on your home, its occupants, and the size of your septic tank, you might need to pump your septic tank once every 3-5 years. If you suspect that it is time to pump yours, contact us today! We can help.

    What shouldn’t I flush down the toilet if I have a septic tank?2020-11-18T16:08:28+00:00

    You should avoid flushing anything that isn’t human waste or toilet paper down the drain. Flushable wipes, dental floss, cigarette butts, feminine hygiene products, paper towels, diapers, and cotton swabs can cause serious damage to your septic tank system.
