Septic Tank Cleaning

Jensen's Excavating is a licensed septage hauler (# 80-24) and has the ability to pump your residential or commercial septic tanks. Tanks should be cleaned every 3 - 4 years depending on size and usage.

Having your septic tank cleaned on a regular basis helps to ensure you get the longest possible service life from your sewage system. Accumulated sludge, if not removed, will enter the secondary disposal area (dry-well, drain field or drain bed) and shorten the useful life. A properly functioning tank allows only the clearer effluent (water) to leave the tank into the secondary disposal through the outlet baffle. Feel free to complete our pump request form to schedule your next cleaning.
