Owens Septic Service
We just purchased a home on a septic. We had NO CLUE about what to do with it.. I called several companies to inquire about service and maintenance. Owens was by FAR the most knowledgeable, honest, and the nicest guys came to pump our tank. I believe the owner was one of the guys in the truck! Very knowledgeable! Very clean looking, the truck was very clean which shocked me!!! I just couldn't believe the overall cleanliness of this company! The lady in the office, I think Jody is whom I talked to, Super nice! I called around 9am and they were there around 12:30, needless to say they were very prompt!! They habe a customer for life! I told my brother and sister in law to call them because they were needing service. They had a wonderful experience also!
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.
