To keep your system in the best condition, maintenance is the key component. By neglecting your septic system, you are putting yourself at risk for a backup, which can lead to thousands of dollars in damage.

You will know when your septic system is backed up because waste can build up in your home or yard. When this happens, you may have to replace a single component or your entire system.

Key factors that go into determining how often you need to have your system inspected include:

  • The size of your septic tank
  • Your home’s water usage
  • The habits of those living in your home

Depending on these factors, you might only need an inspection once or year, or possibly more often than that. If there are a lot of people in your home, you will need more frequent inspections because of heavier water use.

During a septic tank inspection, a technician from Transou's Plumbing & Septic will come to your home and uncover your tanks to measure scum and sludge levels and look at the baffles.

This will tell the inspector how much longer you can wait until getting your septic tank pumped. We evaluate the scum and sludge level so we know what your risk is for a backup. If the levels are too high, we will recommend a septic tank pumping to clean out the tank. Typically, you only need a septic tank pumping every 3 to 5 years, depending on the listed factors.

During a septic tank pumping, our technicians will remove all scum and sludge and be sure that there are no blocks in the system. After pumping, we will take the waste and dispose of it properly. To learn more about us, please click here.

Plumbing FAQs

During a septic pumping service, we will open the septic tank lid and remove the sludge from the top to the bottom of the septic tank. We will then pump out any remaining thick sludge, solids, and water in your septic tank and disinfect it with our special cleaning solution. After this process is complete, we will refill your septic tank with freshwater, ensuring all parts are sealed properly and ready for use!

The frequency of septic pumping depends on how much you have been using your septic system recently. The more frequently you use it, the more waste it accumulates. We recommend having your septic tank pumped once every year or two.

It would be best if you do not use bleach in your septic system because it can harm the bacteria that help break down waste in your plumbing system.

A septic filter is used to prevent solid particles that are too large from passing through your leach field. The solid particles are trapped in the filter, preventing them from clogging up your leach field and causing backups.

No! Planting flowers or bushes over your leach field is not a good idea. The roots of plants can grow through the pipes, which could cause obstruction and clogs. Also, plants and trees can block sunlight from reaching the leach field, which can cause the septic system to fail.

10 stars if it was possible!!! Every single person I have dealt with at Transou has been fantastic. However, special shout-out to Andrew (service tech) and Megan in customer service. Megan has been friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable. She worked hard to coordinate multiple teams since we needed risers installed and the system to be pumped. I just bought a new home, and never have owned one with a septic system before so this is all new to me. Andrew while he was out here pumping the tank went out of his way to educate me on ins and outs of the system and how it operates, upkeep recommendations and things to look out for since the system wasn't mainted properly before I purchased the home. I won't use anyone else in the future, it will always be Transou. Thanks to everyone!

I would like to share what a great experience I had with Josh H and the team from Transou plumbing today.. We had 2 prior quotes from local plumbing companies and was getting conflicting information and need someone we could trust and we got that today with Transou plumbing.. They called and sent a text before they arrived and showed up right on time.. Josh quickly diagnosed the problem and showed and explained exactly what was wrong in terms that I could understand...he took extra care to not bad mouth the other companies but instead focused on finding us the most cost effective solution to our problem..the only reason I didn't have them come first was because they were busy with other companies but got to just as soon as they could...For all our future plumbing needs not only will they be our first call, they will be our only call.
