Septic Pumping & Cleaning in Reno, Nevada

If you are not connected to a centralized sewer system, then chances are your property treats waste and wastewater ON-SITE. That is, you probably have a septic system installed in the property. If this is the case, then make sure to schedule periodic septic pumping and septic cleaning. Residents in the area who need reliable and affordable septic services in Reno can call Rooter Man Plumbing to schedule a convenient appointment. We are an established septic company with uniformed professionals, competitive pricing, and emergency septic pumping in Reno.

Understanding the Importance of Septic Pumping & Cleaning

Before we can understand the urgency and importance of septic pumping, let’s take a minute to talk about the septic system. This on-site wastewater treatment system is responsible for storing and treating waste products from your building. Wastewater and sewage travel down the drains and enter the septic tank. There, the solid waste settles to the bottom and gets broken down by helpful bacteria. The wastewater, meanwhile, readily flows out of the septic tank and onward to the drain field.
Though the helpful bacteria makes the most of the space in the tank by breaking down solid waste into space-saving sludge, the septic tank can only hold so much. The sludge levels will rise over time, and they should NOT get near the inlet and outlet pipes. If sludge gets in those pipes, then you can expect sewage backups, sewage leaks, and even a system failure!
Septic tank pumping in Reno is essential if you want to enjoy the septic tank for its whole life expectancy. This is a quick service that involves vacuuming out the excess waste in the septic tank. Septic tank cleaning is a more comprehensive job that also involves cleaning the pipes and the walls of the septic tank.

When to Pump or Clean the Septic Tank

The septic tank should be pumped before the sludge level approaches dangerous levels. The frequency of your septic tank cleaning in Reno will depend on the size of your septic tank and family as well as your household’s activity levels. Generally, we recommend a septic tank pumping once every three to five years. Septic cleaning is advised once every other pumping appointment or when there are signs of a blockage.

Signs That You Need Septic Pumping

The septic tank is buried underground. Though the access lid is easy to find, most homeowners don’t have to stomach to inspect the septic tank that closely. Fortunately, there are secondary signs of trouble you can watch out for:

  • Slow drainage or signs of blockage in MULTIPLE drains, sinks, and toilets.

  • Smell of sewage in the yard.

We had a busted drain pipe. And we found Rooter Man Plumbing when we were searching for local plumbers in the area. We were having trouble finding someone to come out and fix it. I called the Rooter Man and they showed up the same day and fixed it in less than an hour. Very quick and reliable. Kept their number just in case if we need a plumber later.

Rory got here fairly quick for dinner time on a Saturday night. His actions were even faster for a complicated problem that had waste water backing into a first floor tub. Since it wasn’t our first time, he scoped the problem and gave us an assessment of the necessity for future repairs. Rory is very professional and honest. An Expert Plumber.
