Septic Systems, Inc. proudly serves home owners and builders
through septic system design, installation and maintenance.
Whether you are planning a new home
or commercial construction, or are in need of an upgrade to an
older system, your new On-Site Sewage Facility, referred to as
OSSF, will need to be designed and permitted. Once the size and
location of the system is determined, then the permit application
can be prepared and submitted to the county environmental office
for approval. This office will also conduct inspections on the
OSSF during the installation process. Upon completion of the installation,
we will conduct a thorough orientation with the owner
to explain all aspects of the OSSF, including the treatment process,
care of the system, warranty and our service policy.
MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR
All Texas residents will receive a
2 year warranty and service policy with a new OSSF. This service
policy includes a routine servicing of the system once every 4
months. We are also on call to respond to any questions, concerns,
or if you need any assistance.
At the conclusion
of the initial 2-year policy, we will offer a renewal service policy
to continue to service and maintain your OSSF.
JB Septic Systems offers quality workmanship, unsurpassable customer
service and competitive rates and incentives to our service policy
holders, new and old. Even if we did not
install your Clearstream Aerobic Septic System, we would
be happy to discuss our service policy options with you.
ON-SITE SEWAGE FACILITY CLEANING / PUMPING
All OSSFs, conventional
or aerobic, will require periodic pumping and cleaning. Solid
waste is broken down to the highest degree possible, but remains
in the system until it is physically removed. High
levels of solids not only disrupt the treatment process, but put
undue stress on the components of the system. In order to prevent costly repair or
system failure, it is recommended that OSSFs be pumped every 2-5
Aerobic treatment systems that are
being maintained by a licensed maintenance provider are continuously
monitored for high levels of sludge and scum. Your service provider
will be able to tell you when your system is in need of cleaning.
Pumping aerobic systems is more complex than the pumping of conventional
systems, so it’s
important to hire experienced and qualified individuals to do so.
JB Septic Systems offers both knowledge and experience along with
competitive pricing to our customers. If you suspect your conventional
or aerobic system is in need of pumping, or if you have questions
or concerns, please feel free to contact
REAL ESTATE INSPECTIONS
If you are considering the
purchase of a property with an existing OSSF, you will need to
have it inspected. Because many existing systems were designed
and installed before OSSFs were regulated, the care and maintenance
the system has received may or may not have been adequate. Therefore,
it is important to know the condition and workability of the
OSSF. Often times during a traditional real estate inspection,
the OSSF is given little consideration, with inspections consisting
of only a flush and/or addition of water and maybe dye. These
tests do not accurately determine the workability of the system.
Hiring an experienced OSSF Designer/Installer that is also NAWT
certified, such as those at JB Septic Systems, to perform a very
thorough and accurate inspection is the safest choice to make
when considering the purchase of property that utilizes an OSSF.
