Bigfoot Pumping & Thawing, Septic Systems, Services, North Pole, Alaska

Blocked plumbing and septic systems are no match for Bigfoot Pumping & Thawing. A locally owned family business in North Pole, AK, Big Foot Pumping & Thawing has over 25 years of experience providing annual, seasonal and emergency plumbing services to residents of interior Alaska. Services include general plumbing, septic tank maintenance, drain cleaning, water jetting, snaking, toilet repair and pipe thawing. Since plumbing emergencies happen around the clock, Bigfoot Pumping & Thawing is available 24/7 for urgent calls.

Bigfoot Pumping & Thawing uses cutting-edge technology to diagnose and repair plumbing systems, such as CCTV to locate blockages. Since Alaska's colder ground temperature prohibits the growth of sludge-eating bacteria, the resulting build up in an un-maintained septic system results in drain clogging – and costly repairs. But yearly septic tank pumping from Bigfoot Plumbing & Repair will significantly prolong the life of your septic system, up to 20 years or more.

Bigfoot Pumping & Thawing built their reputation through word-of-mouth customer referrals as an affordable business with a friendly and knowledgeable crew, guaranteeing fast and efficient service. Whether you need a septic inspection or just have a clogged toilet, no job is too small. Call Bigfoot Pumping & Thawing at 907-488-9855 to set up an estimate right now.
