In 1999, MarBorg Industries purchased Lee and Neal, a company that has provided septic system inspections, maintenance, and additives since 1918. Our dependable equipment and qualified staff ensure that MarBorg delivers the best possible septic tank service to all of our customers, including 24-hour emergency service.
Septic system maintenance involves two simple methods. First, the sludge that accumulates in the bottom of the tank must be pumped out periodically. Frequency depends on the size of the tank, usage, and the condition of the system. We recommend servicing a tank every two years on average. If sludge is allowed to build up in a septic tank, the tank may eventually overflow into your absorption area. This will clog the system and emergency service will be required. In many cases, lack of service creates a need for the costly replacement of your drainage system. The second aspect of septic system maintenance involves the bacterial product. We recommend adding a quality bacterial product once a month to promote the health of your system. These products are available through Lee and Neal.
About Septic Systems
According to the EPA (https://www.epa.gov/septic/about-septic systems ), more than one in five households in the U.S. depend on individual septic systems. These systems are used to treat and disperse small volumes of wastewater, usually from houses and businesses not served by a public sewer system.
How does a septic tank work?
Unlike the City’s public sewer system that runs wastewater to El Estero, septic tanks are usually a house-by-house system for all your house’s wastewater—from bathtubs, showers, sinks, toilets, and washing machines. Wastewater flows into a tank buried in the ground outside your home, and then water runs from the tank to a drainage field using sloped pipes.
Why do you need to pump your septic tank?
Sludge builds up at the bottom of your septic tank over time. If you do not pump your tank, the sludge will eventually leak into your leach field and back up into your pipes. Without regular pumping and maintenance, your septic tank could fail and need to be replaced.
How often do I need to pump my septic tank?
How often you need to pump your tank depends on the size of your tank and how many people live in your home. The average recommended frequency is every three to five years. However, it could be significantly more or less than that.
MarBorg’s dependable equipment and qualified staff ensure the delivery of the best possible septic tank service to all our customers, including 24-hour emergency service.
