stokes plumbing is here for you
With our many years of experience serving residential and commercial customers, as well as offering everything from routine septic pumping to complete installations, you can’t go wrong when you make Stokes Plumbing your septic company of choice.
As a septic contractor, our primary focus is to ensure that your entire septic system is working well each year. While we offer septic pump-outs as needed for a home or business, we also recommend asking us about full septic inspections as it’s better to be proactive than dealing with an issue when it arises.
Here are a few situations in which you should contact us immediately:
If you are building a new home or commercial property and have found out that the municipal sewer system does not come to the property, you will need a complete septic system installed. This includes a septic tank, drain field, and perhaps a lift station. As a full-service septic contractor, we can design and install the right system for your needs.
Has Not Been Serviced in Several Years
While every situation is different in terms of how often the septic tank should be pumped and cleaned, the system itself should be inspected regularly to be sure things are working properly and to avoid a costly repair or even premature replacement. If it has been more than 3 years, you should call us.
Experiencing Symptoms of a Problem
There are many different symptoms that a failing or damaged septic system can produce. If you notice odors inside your home or in the yard, water standing near the tank or drain field, lush grass in certain areas of your lawn, slow drains throughout your home, the need to plunge the toilet often, or other things that just don’t seem right, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Drain Field Installations
If you live in a rural area or far away from a sewage plant, chances are high that you have a septic system. However, if you don’t have proper drain field installation, you can suffer serious consequences.
The number of pipes needed will depend on the size of the septic tank and the size of the drain field will vary, depending on the absorbency of the soil. Most septic systems are built to utilize gravity flow, but you can also have a septic system that uses an electric pump to move waste out of the tank and through the process.
The installation of the drain field is a crucial aspect of a septic system, and without proper drainage, your tank will back up and cause problems.
Septic Tank Pumping Services
Septic systems are installed in about 1 in 4 homes in the U.S., and they are especially prevalent in rural areas that are not served by municipal sewer service. Rather than pumping waste through sewer mains to a central sewage treatment facility, a septic system pumps solid and liquid waste from the house out into a drain field and underground septic tank.
