Core Values

What Makes us the Top Septic Company in South Central Indiana?

Owens Septic Service

Your Septic Should Be Pumped Every 2-4 Years To Avoid Costly Repairs

When you fail to get your septic tank pumped regularly, solid waste and sludge start to accumulate in your tank which can lead to backups, clogged lines and potentially a system failure. This can result in spending thousands of dollars on your septic system.

Our Services

Septic Tank Cleaning

Regular maintenance is vital for your septic system's health, and we recommend a visual inspection and cleaning every 2-4 years. Unlike some companies that merely extract liquids, leaving detrimental sludge behind, Owens Septic ensures a thorough job from the get-go. When you reach out to us, we not only remove liquids but also pump out the solids and accumulated sludge. During each pump-out, we perform a visual inspection to assess the overall health of your septic system and promptly address any potential issues that may require attention. Count on us for a job done right the very first time!

Frequently Asked Questions

Answer: Septic tanks generally need pumping every 2 to 4 years. However, the frequency can vary based on factors like household size, water usage, and tank size.

Answer: Generally, additives aren’t necessary. A well-maintained system with regular pumping and proper use is usually sufficient. We do offer an additive if you are looking to purchase one.

Answer: Only human waste and toilet paper should be flushed. Avoid flushing non-biodegradable items, grease, chemicals, and excessive amounts of household cleaners.

Answer: Signs of a failing system include slow drains, unpleasant odors, lush green grass around the drain field, and gurgling sounds in the plumbing. Regular inspections can catch issues early.

Answer: Tree roots can damage septic systems, so it’s best to plant trees away from the drain field. Avoid building structures or parking heavy vehicles on top of the system.

Answer: Yes, a septic inspection is crucial before buying a home. It assesses the system’s condition, ensuring you’re aware of any potential issues before making the purchase.

Answer: Septic tanks are typically located a few feet underground in the same direction that your big black O pipe that leaves your basement. If you still can’t find them, try looking at your property drawings or we can help you locate them.

Answer: A septic riser is a vertical pipe that extends from the septic tank to the ground surface, providing easier access for maintenance. While not mandatory, it makes inspections and pumping more efficient.

Answer: Additives cannot replace pumping. Pumping removes solid waste, while additives may not effectively break down solids. Regular pumping is essential for system longevity.

Answer: With proper care and maintenance, septic systems can last 20 to 30 years or more. Regular inspections, pumping, and responsible use contribute to a longer lifespan.
