Pumping is the most important thing you can do for your septic system. Think of it like changing the oil on your car or replacing your coffee filter. Your septic tank collects all the solids you flush or rinse down the drain while preventing it from entering your soil treatment area (leach field).
Over time the tank will fill up and need to be pumped out to continue functioning properly. When we pump your tank, we empty it completely of solids and effluent. Pumping a tank regularly will extend the life of your septic system, and give your leach field a break from water intake while the tank is filling back up.
Septic systems are built to last many years, but unfortunately cannot last forever. As with most things, the components in a septic system sometimes break or just plain get worn out over the years. We are here to fix those components or replace them if necessary. When your system starts acting up, we are here to troubleshoot the issues and get your system back up and running as quickly and cost effectively as possible.
We can help with tasks like installing risers, replacing electrical boxes and effluent pumps, or replacing broken pipes and crumbling tanks. If your septic system isn't performing as it should, call us today and we will work together to find the best solution for you.

Part of selling a home nowadays requires you to get a full inspection of your septic system by a certified NAWT (National Association of Onsite Wastewater Technicians) inspector. The Septic Use Permit program was introduced in 2013 in most counties in Colorado. Any real estate sale requires a property's septic system be inspected to ensure it is compliant with the corresponding county's codes and regulations. Our NAWT certified technicians can inspect your septic system, and are capable of making any repairs and modifications necessary to bring your system "up to code". Open Country Septic is here to assist with a smooth closing on your home or property today.
