Septic Line Blockage Removal

Your septic tank system performs a critical task–to properly contain and sequester the wastewater produced by your home or business. While these systems are usually quite durable, there are a variety of issues that can crop up to prevent it from functioning properly. When a blockage occurs, the results can be disgusting, inconvenient and even unsafe. Tri-County Pumps specializes in the expert removal of blockages and the fast, efficient repair of septic lines and septic tanks. We have been in business since 1991, so we can confidently say we’ve seen it all, and know just the right course of action to take to deliver relief when you need it most.

Common Causes of Septic Line Blockages

There are a wide variety of things that can cause your septic system to back up. One of the most common causes is the creeping tree roots that permeate through the earth and make their way into your septic lines. Once they penetrate your piping, they will obstruct the flow of wastewater, causing stubborn blockages. Shifts in the earth from natural causes or movement by heavy machinery can damage your septic tank itself, preventing it from functioning normally as well. Additionally, faulty garbage disposals connected directly to your septic tank may fail to break down debris properly, causing a viscous sludge to build up inside your lines and tank. What you flush matters for example non-biodegradable waste materials, hygiene products, diapers and other items of this nature will clog and damage your septic system.

The Importance of Accurate Diagnosis

To eliminate a blockage in your septic line, it is essential to identify the type and location of the obstruction correctly. Relying on guesswork or ineffective methods of diagnosis is a good way to do more damage to your septic lines, causing your repair costs to shoot through the roof. While useful for blasting out debris, roots and fat build-up, rooting devices can damage the pipes in your system if not used correctly. Using harsh chemicals to wash out your system may destroy the beneficial bacterium that feeds on waste, necessitating a full flush of your system which can run upwards of hundreds of dollars.
