What We Do?

While pumping is ideally done every 3-5 years, it is best to seek professional assistance to evaluate your specific septic system based on your household's water usage. Our team provides a detailed inspection of the tank's surroundings to analyze the extent of the damage. We aim to detect early signs of breakdown, covering gurgling sounds, slow drains, dampness, and back-flow, including other signs of system failure and offer high-quality services using efficient equipment such as boosters to make the task easy.


Our team also offers risers for your tank lids to avoid downtime in digging and finding the underground septic systems.

Our pumping services extend to a wide range of drain systems that include:


  • Septic tanks

  • Holding tanks

  • Camper trailers

  • Washroom trailers

How Do Septic Tanks Work?

A septic tank is used to break down contaminants while separating solids from liquids in the stream of wastewater. After the settlement of the solids, the discharged water either goes into the soil or enters an aeration treatment section where pollutants are broken down by microorganisms.

How Often Does a Septic Tank Need to Be Cleaned?


There is no hard and fast rule but you should get your septic tank cleaned every three to five years. How often it needs to be cleaned depends on the size of your tank and its condition. There are many tell-tale signs you could notice that indicate a clogged drain field and a septic tank overflowing which indicates it is time to call septic tank cleaning services in Sudbury.

Things to Keep in Mind

Here are a few key points to remember with respect to septic services:

  • The frequency of pumping tanks depends on the size of the tank, usage, and whether the family using it is on any strong medication.

  • Regardless of what companies claim, any biological or chemical product cannot be used as a substitute for regular septic tank pumping.

  • Keep all hazardous and toxic chemicals far away from the system.

  • Use bleach, disinfectants, and other household cleaners in moderation.

  • Do not flush any waste that can be easily disposed of in garbage cans.
