Tacoma Residential Septic Tank Services
Professional Service for All Your Sewage Needs
A septic tank is the most important component in a septic system. This system is commonly employed wherever a home lacks connections to the main sewage pipes provided by the city. Approximately 25% of the entire North American population relies on septic systems to handle their sewage needs. In the city of Tacoma, most houses are on the city's main sewer system, but once you start getting out of the city and into places like Gig Harbor, University Place, and Puyallup we see a lot more septic systems still in use.
The word “septic” actually refers to the bacterial makeup of the inside of the tank. These bacteria help break down any waste that makes its way in. Occasionally, some maintenance may be required for removal of solids that are less easily broken down.
