With over 40 years of experience, Ace Septic Tank Services has provided clients in the Greater Vancouver region and the Fraser Valley with professional septic tank pumping and holding tank cleaning services.
Home septic systems need pumping on a regular basis, typically every 2 – 5 years to avoid risking costly repairs and health concerns. If you notice sluggish drains or you hear gurgling, you’ll need your septic tank pumped. But, it’s best to get your tank pumped before it gets to that point.
If you have soft or mushy areas in your yard, it is an indication there could be problems like a full septic tank, damaged septic pipes or a septic field blockage. Foul smells also indicate a septic system that needs attention.
Each time a septic tank is pumped by Ace Tank Services, our drivers perform a visual check. They check for cracks, excessive sludge, water levels, blocked pipes (both inlet and outlet), etc. This visual inspection is included in our standard septic cleaning and pumping service.
To pump your septic tank, you will need to expose your septic lid. If unsure where the septic tank is, we offer a tank location service, using a camera. Sometimes our experts can locate your septic tank without a camera but only if the placement follows the standard rules (usually the septic tank is located by the master bathroom).
When a yard is overly wet and mushy, we often find it is because the septic field lines have become clogged with dirt, or in some cases, with sewage that has seeped from an overly full septic tank. By doing a septic field flush, which blows air through the septic field lines to dislodge any dirt and blockages, we are often able to correct the problem.
Sometimes toilet paper or other objects can become lodged in the pipes that go from the house to the septic tank. Using excessive amounts of toilet paper can cause this problem. We can sometimes use our flusher truck to flush out the inflow and outflow septic lines to dislodge whatever is causing the blockage. Ask us about our septic line flushing service by giving us a call today at 604-534-8242 or send us a message!
For septic systems that are relatively simple, where the lid is buried, we are able to install a riser lid that is flush with the ground. This simplifies the process of having to expose the septic lid to have your system pumped. The riser is secured by screws. Ask about our septic riser installation service.
