Septic Tank Pumping
Most septic tanks require pumping every Three to Five years. El-jude Environmental Cleaning Services will
pump out your septic tank and transport waste to an approved treatment and processing facility.
Safety is our priority;
we obey all environmental laws and regulations to ensure that septic tank waste is responsibly processed
and poses no environmental hazards.
Routine septic tank pumping is the key to maintaining a properly functioning commercial septic system.
Neglecting regular septic tank maintenance leaves your system susceptible to hardened grease that
can cause clogged drains and wastewater backups in and out of the building.
How often should I have my septic system pumped?
The pumping frequency of a commercial septic system is dependent on several factors, including:
Type of business
Size of septic tank
Amount of organic material in the wastewater
Septic tanks with high concentrations of fat, oil, grease and chemicals require more
frequent septic tank pumping for optimal function.
The EPA reports that while the average septic system is pumped every three years,
those with electrical float switches, pumps or mechanical components should be inspected more often.
In general, we recommend having your septic system inspected and pumped once a year to be safe.
Our septic system inspection can help you determine the proper pumping schedule for your business.
Septic System Maintenance
In addition to Septic Tank Pumping, El-jude plumbers can perform a
thorough septic system inspection to verify proper operation,
recommend a preventative maintenance schedule, and identify potential problems
before they become severe. Our commercial septic inspections include the following services:

Why is septic system maintenance so important?
Given how expensive it is to replace a septic system, proper maintenance is an important step to keeping your
septic system healthy. The more proactive you are in caring for and maintaining your septic system, the longer
that septic system will last. When maintaining your septic tank, the goal is to prevent the accumulation of solids,
as well as any groundwater contamination.
Below is an easy four-step maintenance program, which if followed carefully,
will prevent solid build-up and ensure that your system will operate at peak efficiency for many years
Four Steps to Septic System Maintenance
Responsible Pumping –
Each household should be on a regular septic service schedule to prevent the accumulation of solids in their system.
Servicing frequency varies per household.
High-Pressure Water Jetting –
All septic systems, regardless of responsible pumping, will accumulate solids and other debris in their drain pipes.
The presence of these solids clogs the pipes that connect the septic tank to the drain field. Therefore,
we recommend high-pressure water jetting every five years to eliminate and clear any debris that could prevent your
system from operating efficiently.
Use a Bacteria Additive – Septic owners should use a live organic bacteria that breaks down the presence of unnatural substances and solids, like detergents and soaps, that sometimes enter your septic system. If these common household substances penetrate your septic system they kill off the naturally occurring bacteria that allow your system to function properly. Bacteria additives keep your pipes odor free, clean and clear.
Install an Effluent Filter – Your filter, which prevents solids from entering into your drain field, needs to be cleaned or replaced whenever you service your system.
Septic Tank Cleaning
Hiring a professional waste disposal company is the ultimate way to take care of the cleaning process.
El-jude Environmental Cleaning Services are experts in septic tank cleaning. We have trained,
knowledgeable staffs that can identify the cause of problems you may be having with your Septic Tank.
A well maintained septic tank system can provide years of reliable low-cost service.
However, when systems fail, the cost of repair can be high.
This can cause unpleasant smells, blocked drains and the environmental pollution.
It is therefore important to regularly empty your septic tank system.
Signs your Septic Tank needs to be inspected and cleaned:
Wet patches in lawn in the vicinity of the Septic Tank/Percolation area
Greener heavier grass in one area, below the septic tank area.
If the Septic Tank is filling up quicker than normal for no obvious reason.
Your Septic Tank Cleaning majorly depends on the people living in the household and its usage.
If the septic tank had not been cleared for year, there are greater chances that the drain field is clogged.
El-jude makes sure that heavy sludge is removed making space for proper drainage.
We use gully suckers to do the heavy cleaning. We start by emptying the tank and removing all
the solid wastes that had been collected. The waste is collected in a gully sucker, which is a tank truck with
a suction gear. This pump sucks wastewater and sludge from the septic tank into the tank on the lorry.
