Could anyone please provide me with a name of someone in town that does pumping out of septic tanks?

Also...his/their contact information.

It would be really appreciated.

Thanks so much

You're in for a shock at the cost. Find out why it needs pumping as if designed and working properly they shouldn't.

The biggest mistake is people putting grey water into the septic when it isn't big enough and wasn't designed for it. Also if lots of soapy water ie washing machine dishwasher lots of showers baths etc can stop the soakaway working as it clogs/seals the floor with a soapy water resistant cake and it then just back fills all the other chambers.

Dumping yeast into a problem septic can sometimes get it going.. use a whole "bulk type" yeast package. Also, the use of harsh acids and too much bleach can stop up septic systems.

Soapy water from showers and washing machines should be routed to your gardens. The soap is a great fertilizer.
