Septic Systems

What is a septic system?

Technically, it is a residential onsite wastewater system. An onsite wastewater system processes and safely removes all the water that comes into your home. Most people prefer not to think about what happens after a toilet is flushed, they are just happy it is gone. The septic system is one of the most critical systems in your home.

Most people do not realize an onsite wastewater system requires regular maintenance. Neglecting the maintenance can be a costly mistake. A properly maintained septic system can operate worry free for years maybe even decades.

What do you do when it stops working? Call a professional, call Septix One.

Basic Maintenance

  • Septic Tanks should be pumped and inspected every 2-5 years.  
  • Most homes built after 1999 will have a filter that needs to be cleaned regularly.  If it does not have a filter you should consider installing a filter.
  • Leach field lines should be cleaned by chemical means or hydrojetting every 2-5 years.



We offer a full range of Licensed Professional Septic Contractor services. Septix One uses only the highest quality products for lids, risers, and leach field components. Septic tanks are available in heavy duty plastic or concrete.

Septic Tank Pumping

Septic tank pumping service is available as regular maintenance or can be done with the Time of Sale Inspection. Septic Tanks should be pumped every 2-5 years depending on how many people live in the home and what size system you have.

Leach Field

Leach Field Scrubbing is a service that can improve efficiency and renew a Leach Field extending the life of a Leach Field for many years.


Hydro Jetting is high pressure cleaning of the drain lines in the septic system, clearing clogged or slow draining lines in the Septic System.

Well Water Test & Shock

Water samples are collected and sent to a certified testing laboratory. A detailed water quality report is created. Often, wells have some form of bacteria or contamination. Shocking a well regularly can prevent and correct many issues.
