This week’s “from the field” from our crewman Roger:
Customer called because they had standing water in their yard. We discovered their tank was not draining to their field lines. We fixed it by digging up the line and replacing it.
Please call us for all your septic solutions!!

Here’s our latest “From the Field” from our crewman Tyler:
“I went out to a business earlier this week and they had complained about having issues with the floor drains backing up into the kitchen, once we got there and opened the lids to the grease trap we found the issue. The inlet tee on the grease trap was clogged with old grease due to lack of proper maintenance so after pumping the tank down and snaking the line all of the grease from the pipe was removed and the floor drains no longer were an issue.”
Please call us for all your grease trap needs!

Our customer thought he needed his tank pumped.
After digging up the tank, I could clearly see that the customer had old cast iron pipes between the house and the tank. I recommended replacing the old pipe with plastic pvc pipe and installing a clean out to prevent future stopping up issues.
I came back, dug up and replaced the old cast iron pipe with pvc and added a clean out.
The customer was very happy with our work.
Please give us a call for your septic tank needs !!

I have been called out to service several customers this week with low pressure pipe systems two residential and one commercial property. LLPS systems were designed for applications where conventional septic systems won’t work due to poor soil or water table issues.
The problem is almost every owner of these type systems never realizes how important the maintenance is on these types.
The valves to adjust head pressure, the turn ups to blow out the lines, and the overall sensitivity of not driving on or letting the area become overgrown or over-vegetated. I encourage anyone who has an alternative septic system to read up on and educate themselves about maintenance to avoid costly repairs or possibly total failure.
Tyler shared this about one of his jobs last week:
On monday night I received a call to go to clarksville. A gym was backing up inside into the showers and floor drains.
The problem was that the pumps in the lift station stopped working. I found that out by opening the control panel and trying to manually turn the pumps on. They wouldn’t cut on so to solve the problem I pumped the lift station dry, and sucked out the line to give them relief for the night.
Please call the Doo Doo Guru for all your septic and grease needs!!
