Septic Tank Pumping

A septic tank system, like any other piece of equipment, lasts longer and will function better with regular maintenance. It is highly recommended that your tank be pumped every 3-5 years to remove accumulated sludge and scum. Otherwise, after time it can cause your drainfield lines to clog causing the drainfield to fail which can lead to costly repairs.

Grease Removal

Outside restaurant grease traps/interceptors are used to collect oils, fats, greases and food solids; they are constructed of concrete material. The traps have two sides for the collection of these debris.

It is very important to have the traps/interceptors cleaned on a regular basis. If the grease traps/interceptors get to full and are not services properly they can cause a number of problems. If they are not serviced properly or on a regular basis the grease can build up in the tanks and become hardened, this can cause backups and overflows outside the building and draining issues on the inside as well. If traps/interceptors get too full over time they can cause backups in the sanitary sewer lines.

At McNeI Septic service our technicians will measure the grease thickness, check the inlet and outlet pipes, suggest service frequency and will document this information for you on your work order. The traps/interceptors are then cleaned using the suction from the truck as well as pressured water to help clean out the tank. The waste is disposed at a legal disposal site.
