Septic Cleaning, Maintenance & Repair Service for Residential and Commercial Systems


The only septic system backup you should have is us.

If your home or business isn’t connected to a public sewer system, you have a septic system for disposing wastewater. And, by law, you are responsible for maintaining this system.

So the big question remains: How do I know when it’s time to check my septic system?

  1. Are your sinks, toilets, tubs, showers slow to drain?
  2. Do you smell the odor of sewage in your yard?
  3. Is the ground soft and mushy even when it hasn’t rained?
  4. Do you have an especially lush patch of green grass in an otherwise ordinary lawn?

If you replied “Yes!” to any of these questions, the correct answer is always Avery!

What is a septic system anyway, and how does it work?

Septic systems are basically an underground septic tank that is connected to an underground drainage area. All the wastewater generated by your household or business drains into one main drainage pipe and into the tank. Solids settle to the bottom of the septic tank, kitchen oils and grease float to the top, and wastewater runs out of the tank system into the ground.

Your challenge is to have the accumulated solids pumped out on a regular basis, before they back up and cause a catastrophic mess of your property, daily routine, and finances. The cost of a routine septic system pump out/cleaning, and maintenance check is a small fraction of the thousands of dollars it would cost to repair or replace a neglected or failed system.

Avery makes it effortless for you: Call us to perform a routine, cost-efficient septic tank cleaning – and we’ll automatically send you a postcard reminder next time you’re due for service!

How often does a septic tank need to be serviced?

A septic tank should be cleaned every two to four years, and some septic tanks require more frequent cleanings. Frequency of cleaning depends on the size of your tank, the condition of your system, and the burden placed on it (e.g., garbage disposal; number of people using the system; etc.).
