Hogge's Septic Tank Svc
Hogges septic service is unquestionably the best of all those availiable ! I have used them for over two decades and they are so very awesome in their expertise and their ability to actually fix you system. I had two different septic service people pump my system 20 years ago and neither could make it work properly and when I called those people back they said stuff like " your tank must be cracked" . So fortunately, I called hogges. I simply will never forget when the very polite young lady answered and after talking with her about my previous experiences, she said , " my dad will come out and look at your system and he will fix it". I was like , " he can fix it? ". And , she replied, " yes he will fix it and make it work". A couple of hours later mr. Hogges showed up, located everything, pumped out the tank, diagnosed the problems grease clogs etc... His helper climbed in and removed the clog and actually put it on the ground right in front of us. He told me it would now work properly and it did! And has! He also used his special invention to suck out the drain lines! Wow! Nobody else did any of this before, period. Mr. Hogg was excellent and his son has carried on the very same outstanding service to this very day. Yes, I would recommend hogges to a friend.
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.
