Pelton cares about their customers, i was relieved when i called them because our pump went out because they made it an extra long day to be sure we had running water again... family owned, their daughter came to replace our pump. Very customer friendly and love their way of treating people! We are long standing customers

Carl Pelton has been in business for many years. He's replaced our pump, well troll and most recently, damaged wiring due to a lightening strike. He is reliable, trustworthy and fair. There is never a convenient time to lose your water source and he has never let us down. He's been able to get us up and running within the same day. I have family members that call Carl when they need water well services and recommend him as well.
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.
