Drain and Sewer
Septic Tanks & Service in Twin Falls, ID
Not all homes have the advantage of proximity to a municipal sewer line that will remove wastewater and solid waste from their home and take it to a treatment plant. In the Wood River Valley, there are many homes far removed from access to sewer lines, and they must instead use a septic tank to handle the removal and treatment of waste. Septic tanks have special plumbing requirements, and not all plumbing contractors are skilled or equipped to handle them. We, however, are!
Evans Plumbing Inc will help you with a large number of septic tanks services, such as installation, replacement, repairs, and regular maintenance. (We do not offer septic tank pumping at this time, however.) You can trust to our more than 40 years of history helping homes in Twins Falls, ID and throughout Southern Idaho with their plumbing. Evans Plumbing at Your Door.
The Operation of a Septic Tank
The job of a septic tank is to take the collected wastewater from a home, which comes to the tank through the sewer line, and separate out solid and bacterial waste from the water. The sludge sinks to the bottom of the tank, while the lighter–than–water waste, such as oils and grease, rises to the top as the scum layer. This leaves a nutrient–rich gray water in the middle—the clarified liquid—which exits the tank and goes into the ground through a drain field. When the septic tank is doing its job properly and without malfunctions, it allows for the easy and safe disposal of waste.
Septic Tank Repair Services
The key part of the last sentence above was "doing its job properly." A septic tank can develop blockages that will result in problems such as bacterially contaminated water entering the drain field and sewage that backs up into the house, creating terrible odors and unsanitary conditions. At the first sign that you are dealing with a septic tank that isn’t draining correctly (such as numerous clogs in drains around the home) you need to call our professional team immediately. You can’t try these repairs yourself—believe us, you don’t want to! Leave the work to us and we’ll have your septic tank system restored quickly.
