FAQs on Septic Remediation

Septic remediation involves restoring the balance of beneficial microorganisms in a septic system to enhance its efficiency and address issues such as odors, backups, or slow drainage.

The process typically employs specialized treatments containing beneficial bacteria and enzymes. These microorganisms actively break down organic waste, grease, and other substances, promoting a healthier septic environment.

They accelerate the decomposition of solids, reduce scum buildup, and enhance the overall treatment of wastewater. 

Regular application of septic remediation products fosters optimal microbial activity, preventing system failures and maintaining proper functioning. It’s a proactive approach to septic system maintenance, preventing costly repairs and ensuring the longevity of the system. Homeowners can incorporate septic remediation into their routine maintenance to safeguard the health and performance of their septic systems effectively.

Removing an old septic tank depends on various factors, including its condition, local regulations, and the installation of a new system. If the tank is damaged, obsolete, or poses environmental risks, removal might be necessary.

Local authorities and environmental agencies may have guidelines stipulating when and how septic tanks should be decommissioned. 

In some cases, tanks are left in place and filled with inert materials, while in others, complete removal is mandated. Professional assessment by a septic service provider can determine the best course of action. Regulations and disposal methods vary, so consulting with local authorities ensures compliance. Whether for safety, environmental, or regulatory reasons, replacing or removing an old septic tank should be guided by professional advice and adherence to local guidelines.

To get your septic tank emptied efficiently, contact a licensed septic service provider in your area. Search for reputable companies with a track record of professional and reliable service.

Schedule a septic tank pumping appointment, ensuring it aligns with your tank’s recommended pumping frequency, typically every 3 to 5 years. During the service visit, experienced technicians use specialized equipment to pump out the accumulated solids and liquids from the tank. 

Regular septic tank pumping is crucial for preventing backups, maintaining system efficiency, and prolonging the lifespan of your septic system. For convenience, many septic service providers offer online scheduling or can be reached by phone. Remember that DIY attempts can lead to complications, so entrust this critical task to trained professionals for a thorough and hassle-free septic tank emptying process.

Needed A1 again due to a small pinhole leak in a copper pipe that was discovered late in the evening. Went online and requested an appointment for the next day. Received a phone call the next morning confirming I was scheduled for that day, and that it would be before noon. They arrived as scheduled, and fixed the leak. Thanks, again!(Previous Post)Our hot water tank went suddenly. One call to A1 Plumbing and someone was there that day to assist with fixing the issue. Really appreciate the notifications we received advising when someone was on their way and giving us an approximate arrival time. Great Service!We recently had a second great experience with A1 Plumbing. We had an older metal section of our kitchen sink drain pipe leak. Of course, we discovered the leak on the weekend.

We utilized the temporary solution, and a technician arrived early Monday morning to fix the problem. Thanks again for the quick response!

If I could give a 10 star review I would.I called on a Monday, they came the Tuesday to assess the job (leaking well and fried wiring) then returned the next day with an excavator to complete the work.The two Mikes did a fantastic job. I knew it would be a difficult one because the saturated ground is just full of rock, welcome to PEC!All was going great until our local junkie lunatic decided to steal one of their work trucks from my driveway.Tail gate open, cap doors open, dropping a plethora of plumbing items as she sped off down the road. Including a motorcycle helmet belonging to another A-1 employee who came by to drop off a couple of fittings.Little did the crackhead know, I have security cameras and resulting video was of great interest to the OPP officer who attended possibly the most ridiculous crime ever committed in Rednersville.With everyone on scene in a state of complete and utter disbelief and now short on tools and supplies, the two Mikes still managed to complete the work. Thank you so much guys!You’re the best.
