Kelley's Septic Tank & Sewer Service
We had a main line clog which was backing up into the basement. The first plumber I called came out with a rooter and "worked" on the clog for about and hour and half. Came up with a pile of roots and said he was unable to go any further. He said- The line was too clogged at the street. Then they told my landlord it would be $20,000 to fix! And charged him $500 and left a pile of sludge roots on the floor. So we called Kelley's for a second opinion. They knew immediately after hearing our situation they would be able to fix the problem. The receptionist knew right away that the first guys did not use the right size rooter. The Kelly's service guy, I can't remember his name I'm so sorry, came 10 minutes early and quickly got to work. He was very courteous and honest, offering advice that will save use future high costs. He brought a huge machine down and said the other guy was probably using a SINK rooter! He was finished with the job in an hour and a half and even cleaned up the mess the other guy left. Kelley's Sewer Service is AWESOME! Thank you so much for the AMAZING service! In today's world of scammers it is so nice to find a business that actually shows honesty, integrity and hard work! THANK YOU!!!!!!
Tips & Advices
Though your tank can handle many gallons of water, too much water at one time can overwork the system and cause solid waste to enter the drain​ field.
To prevent pipe damage, call 811 before you begin any project that would require you to dig. A professional can detect which areas you need to stay away from. Remember, there could be more than just your septic system beneath your land - wires and cables may also run through your property.
A number of factors can cause baffles, lines, and pipes to break or crack, including:
  • Digging in the wrong place
  • Sulfuric acid or rust deterioration
  • Tree-root infiltration
Using a special camera, a contractor should be able to locate the crack or leak and replace the part.
Clogs or backups are usually caused by improper or too-infrequent pumping. Your tank is completely full, and solid waste is being forced through the outlet tee baffle and clogging it. Some signs that you have a clog include:
  • Wastewater backing up in your drains in your home
  • Foul odors in your home
  • Water draining slowly
Preventing septic system failure also involves keeping the drain​ field clear. Never drive or park over the drain​ field, and don't allow livestock to walk over it. Heavy equipment should also be kept away from this area.
