Stephenson's Septic Tank Services
I plucked this company name out of a hat so to speak so I had no experience with them and no idea what to expect. Since my initial service request, I have called upon Jody to do everything I needed: Septic, well, electrical station, and power hookups. This company, the owner, and everyone I cam into contact have all been extremely helpful, very prompt, and professional. I highly recommend Stephenson's for everything and anything you can think of. If by some off chance you need something they cannot do, they will refer you to another experienced and well respected company / person for that job. Need more companies and people that actually care about their work, like I have found here!
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.
