JT Septic Co takes great pride in providing fast, quality, and affordable septic tank pumping when you need it. We have dedicated high-capacity pump trucks and drivers just for septic pumping to help ensure we can provide prompt, efficient service.
We regularly provide pump-out service to:
- Broken Arrow
- And surrounding areas
Our septic tank pumping specialists are specifically trained not only on how to pump out your tank but also how to use specialized agitation equipment for breaking up and stirring waste solids and debris built up on the bottom and sides of your tank so it can be thoroughly and completely cleaned.
And when we say thoroughly and completely cleaned, we mean it. Our trucks are big enough to take full aerobic systems - we take everything! We also perform mini-inspections of your tank and components every time we pump and carry Sludge Judges on all service and pump trucks in order to properly measure the sludge levels in your tank and ensure that your septic tank is always running at its optimum level.
DID YOU KNOW? The Oklahoma DEQ (Department of Environmental Quality) requires 95% of all liquids and solids to be removed when pumping out a residential septic tank. Our trucks at JT Septic Co have a capacity of 2,800 gallons to guarantee that your septic system can be fully cleaned during routine pumping - this ensures that your septic system will not need to be serviced as frequently and will save you a considerable amount of money over the lifetime of your septic system!
HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU HAVE YOUR SEPTIC SYSTEM PUMPED?
The time between septic pumps depends on a few different factors:
- The size of your system
- The number of people living in your household
- The usage level of your septic system
The EPA recommends that septic tanks be inspected every two to three years. On average, most septic systems are pumped every 3-5 years. But, if your system is undersized for your household and generates more usage, we recommend having your septic system pumped more frequently. Putting off your pumping could result in an unpleasant mess, costly repairs, and may require a full replacement of your septic system. If you are unaware of what size septic system you have, our trained professionals can visit your home to complete an evaluation.
DO AEROBIC SYSTEMS NEED PUMPING, TOO?
The answer is: Absolutely, yes! It is so important to keep your aerobic treatment plant clean and while it may seem like a money saver to only do partial pumping, it is better, in the long run, to have your aerobic system fully pumped on a regular schedule to ensure that it is functioning efficiently and properly disposing of your household waste.
WHAT IS YOUR SEPTIC SYSTEM TRYING TO TELL YOU?
Keep an eye on your septic system for these potential warning signs of a malfunction:
- Puddles forming in your yard
- A recent increase in plumbing backups
- A strong, foul odor
- Unusually healthy grass around the area of your septic system
If you see any of the above, don’t wait! Call us immediately and we’ll come out to assess the situation and recommend repairs if needed.
ADDITIONAL PRODUCTS & SERVICES FOR A HEALTHY SEPTIC SYSTEM
Our goal is to leave your septic system better than we find it every time and ensure that it will run as efficiently as possible, giving you the peace of mind that your septic system can stay out of sight, out of mind.
- Lenzyme - Lenzymes contain one of the highest quality bacteria and enzyme bio additives in the septic industry. Enzymes attack organic materials to assist bacteria in the consumption and breakdown of waste.
- Chlorine Tablets - Chlorine kills harmful bacteria and pathogens in your septic system before effluent is dispersed to the lawn. It’s important to use only the type of chlorine tablets that are specifically intended for your septic system (DO NOT use pool chlorine!). Ask us about purchasing the proper chlorine tablets at your next service call!
- Tank Agitating - When the waste in your tank is too thick from building up over time and either not being pumped properly or not being pumped frequently enough, it makes it harder to remove all solid materials without agitating the tank. This loosens the solid material making it easier to pump. We’ll always talk with you about this option before we do it, but we highly recommend tank agitation in cases where your tank hasn’t been pumped in a considerable amount of time to ensure that the tank is completely cleaned out and will function efficiently until your next pumping.
