Nobody likes a slow flushing toilet or a noisy drain pipe. These are not just issues that we would like to avoid but are also warning signs of a defective septic system. Routine maintenance can help prevent this from happening. Before you begin to notice any malfunctioning, reach out to River Valley Septic Service today for preventative septic maintenance services in Saint John and surrounding areas.
Locating Tank and Sewer Lines by Using Sewer Video Inspection
If you don’t know where your sewer line or tank is, we can run a camera with a transmitter from your house out the cleanout (a capped part of the line that allows for access and maintenance) in order to locate your tank or sewer line. This enables us to inspect the condition of your sewer line, and also reduces the need to dig multiple holes to pinpoint where the problem section is.
Installing Septic Tank Risers or Lids
A septic tank riser is a simple and important upgrade to older septic systems. Most new systems have this extension that brings access to ground level. The real advantage to this upgrade is that you do not have to dig up your lawn to service your tank, but most importantly, if you do have trouble at any time, the tank will have to be accessed to determine where the trouble lies. This above ground access point would be an excellent investment for your home, will save you time, physical work and aggravation.
Tank Baffle and Effluent Filter Installation and Repair
All new septic systems have effluent filters installed on the outlet of the tank. They provide critical protection to your drain field by keeping it free and clear of solids and will help to greatly extend the life of your field. We are able to retrofit an existing system with a sludge and scum filter that will help protect your drain field from failure.
We also offer excavation services, repairs, and more. Please call us anytime for a site visit.
