At Coker Septic we would rather pumpout your septic tank periodically on a routine basis, than to come into your yard every few years and do an expensive drainfield. The cost of a drainfield runs into the thousands of dollars. Thats' not even considering the damage done to your grass, sprinklers, landscaping and fences, or the flooding of your bathroom floors and possibly carpet damage.
I would be glad, when we pump your tank, to discuss your particular requirements and needs and even set you up on our computer to notify you when its time for a service. Remember a septic tank is out of sight and usually out of mind till its too late. Let me take those worries off your back. Buying Property...
Most lending institutions are requiring septic tank inspections before the closing. That is because most people neglect their systems or have them serviced right before they sell, letting you deal with the headaches of a failing system.
It is important to have an accurate service record that would protect you against shady septic inspectors looking to make a quick buck knowing you would spend quick money to close that sale. We can provide you that record and stand behind our experience.
We also do septic inspections. Which are very important if you are buying. There are actually septic tanks that can be repaired to today's standards and it can be expensive and time-consuming process to find an alternative.
As the scum builds down and the sludge builds up, the tank size actually gets smaller and less efficient. Thus allows the solids to escape into the drainfield quicker with fewer bacterial actions. This causes sealing off of the pours of the earth and your system no longer drains.
