Smith's Sanitary Septic Service » York PA » Septic Service York PA

If you have a septic tank buried deep into the ground of your home in York PA, then you will need to think about septic service once in a while. It is quite easy to neglect the system as you don’t see it every day, but if you think about all the waste water that leaves your home on the daily, your perspective may change.

The septic system has been here for over 100 years and the design has not really changed over this time. Septic systems play an important role in keeping your property in great shape. Whenever water is utilized in the house, it travels through underground piping to the septic system from where it combines and is separated over time.

Septic tanks come in different sizes depending on the size of a property. A typical 3-bedroom house will have a 1250 gallon tank or larger depending on the number or residents. Older systems has a single compartment while newer technology will consist of two.

When waste water enters a septic tank, it takes a while before the bacteria on the tank starts to break it down. Heavier inorganic particles settle at the bottom of the tank while the lighter organic stuff floats. As long as the system is properly maintained, all ‘residents’ of the tank have their place and the ecosystem is healthy. If sludge fills above the recommended levels, the liquid part of waste water will have less time to settle into the tank and so solids that should have been left at the bottom leave the tank. They make their way to the soil absorption system, clogging it and prevent effective absorption of liquid. That is how you end up with a backed-up drain field.

Why Pump your Septic Tank?

Over time, the septic tank will need cleaning and pumping, which we typically recommend to be done every two to three years. Pumping basically breaks down sludge that if left to accumulate for longer than three years, could lead into inorganic solids seeping into the leaching area, which you don’t want.

During pumping, any problems with the drainage system are addressed early on and will prevent a full-blown problem. If left unattended for too long, the cost to the home owner could escalate from the few dollars it takes to pump and clean the system to tens of thousands it could take to replace the leaching system and treat the soil around the drain field.

Septic Service in York PA Reviews

Very happy with service.
Great customer service! The staff is professional, friendly and is quick to respond to any questions or concerns.
Smith’s septic has the best service I’ve experienced. I highly recommend Smith’s.
Pump out septic systemSometimes, the operator must be in a hurry because the tank is not emptied and is completely full after only 3-weeks. They try to tell us it is because of the rain. Then, why is always OK when the older gentleman comes out and this only happens when the younger man comes out??? Plus, twice, in the past, we had been scheduled and no one showed up. We had to call to find out what had happened and then wait for someone to come, either later that day or the next day. This is not good. Especially after someone has had bariatric surgery, which causes even more issues
They do a great job at communicating and sticking to their word. Brandon Fry Is great to work with and always does a great job.
