Our team is here to take care of all your septic tank pumping needs to keep your system in good working order.
One of the many services we offer here at John E. Byrd, Jr. Trucking and Tractor Service LLC is septic tank pumping. For those who don’t know, a septic system is not connected to public sewer lines, and therefore can’t send waste to public treatment facilities. Instead, liquid waste flows through a network of pipes and filters, which remove toxins before returning the water to the soil. Solid waste sinks to the bottom of the septic tank and stays there until it is removed. The process of removing solid waste from the tank is known as septic tank pumping, and it needs to be done every few years in order to keep the system in good working order. This is not a job you would want to do yourself, so we encourage you to have our experts take care of it for you.
