What Is Involved in Septic Pump Repairs? April 13, 2018

What Is Involved in Septic Pump Repairs?, Waimea, Hawaii

Septic tanks and cesspools must effectively transport and treat the wastewater from your home. A properly installed system should operate out of sight and out of mind. However, some systems require routine septic pump repairs and maintenance. As a homeowner, here’s what you should know about the repair process.

What You Can Expect from Septic Pump Repairs

1. Shut Off

For safety’s sake, a septic cleaning professional will begin by shutting off the breaker for the septic pump from your home’s electrical panel. They will also disconnect the septic pump from your plumbing system and completely remove it from the tank.

2. Remove Debris

Septic pumps can become clogged with sludge and debris, which will prevent your septic tank and cesspool from properly removing and treating wastewater. Once the pump has been removed, a professional will remove accumulated debris from the pump’s impeller, taking care not to damage the part itself. They may use specific equipment to more thoroughly clean and repair the septic pump as needed.

3. Replace

After your pump has been properly serviced, it will be lowered back into the tank and reattached. Once the breaker has been switched on, you should be able to verify that the pump is operational when you see your system’s water level drop.

Signs You Need Septic Pump Repairs
