Septic Tank Services in Rancho Cucamonga, CA by Allstar Home Services
Septic tanks are more common than you may think. An estimated one in four homes has a septic tank installed on the property, which means that they do not get sewer service from the municipality where they reside. There are some advantages to this system. For example, the grass above the septic system is fertilized by some of the clarified liquid waste in the sewer, and it is designed so that you won’t have to deal with any odors. But you must keep in mind that you are 100% responsible for its care.
If something were to go wrong with the sewer main serving a home, the city would be responsible for fixing it. But when it comes to a septic tank, you are responsible for every part of its care: installation, replacement, repair, and routine maintenance and cleaning. Thankfully, you can contract this work out to the friendly, clean professionals at Allstar Home Services if you live in the Rancho Cucamonga, CA area. We provide septic tank installation and replacement, sewage pump installation and repair, and all of the maintenance and cleaning services you will need as the years go on.

How Septic Systems Work
All of the drains in your home eventually meet up at the sewer line, and they need somewhere to drain the waste. In a typical home, this drainage might be provided by the local government. But in your home, a large septic tank holds the waste instead. The septic tank is designed to take advantage of the natural buoyancy of the substances inside. The more solid “sludge” sinks to the bottom of the tank, while a layer of scum—fats, oils, and grease, for example—floats to the top. The remaining liquid, known as effluent, is in the middle. A drain field that leads out from the tank allows only this effluent to move out of the tank to add space and to provide some fertilization as an added bonus.
When to Schedule Septic Service
Septic pumping should be scheduled at least once every 3 – 6 years, as long as the tank was sized properly for your needs. If the septic system is too small for the amount of people in your home, you may need it pumped more often. It is a good idea to have the system inspected each year in order to determine whether more frequent pumping is necessary, or if you need any repairs. Call your local septic specialist to schedule septic service.
