Septic Services in Napa Valley

Trusted Septic Repair, Pumping, & Installation in Napa, CA

Septic systems offer homes a way to manage their waste, without being connected to the city’s sewer line. This can be extremely beneficial for residents in rural or restricted areas. If properly maintained, your septic system will last as long as your home does! Allow our plumbing experts at Mr. Rooter® Plumbing to provide quality septic services in Napa.

To schedule a septic repair, installation, pumping, or more, call (707) 666-0176!

How a Septic System Works

Typically, wastewater enters through one chamber of a septic system, where the solid sludge settles on the bottom and the scum floats to the top. The liquid flows through a dividing wall into a second chamber, where the solids further settle. The excess liquid moves out into the drain field. Throughout the process, the solid waste is anaerobically digested.

Common Issues with Septic Systems

If not properly maintained, the septic tank can over fill and the system can become clogged. It is important to regularly check and maintain your system to prevent future damage.

Common septic system issues our Napa plumbers handle include:

  • Overfull Tank – A full septic tank can indicate a problem with the liquid absorption unit.
  • Detached Dividing Wall – If the tank separates into two compartments, sludge may become trapped in one and can cause system failure.
  • Roots – Tree or plant roots can interfere with a septic system. Roots can break the line or grow between the drain fields. The moisture draws the roots towards the septic system.
  • Corroding Walls – Usually occurring in two compartment tanks, corrosion occurs when hydrogen sulfide gas gathers in the system.

Septic System Repair and Replacement

To prolong your septic system’s life, it is important to have the unit regularly repaired and maintained. Because septic problems are not as noticeable as other plumbing issues, it is a good idea to have a septic plumbing specialist look over your system often.

Septic tanks also require pumping. Depending on the size and model, the average septic tank should be pumped every three to five years. However, failing septic systems may need to be checked more frequently. We can provide septic pumping in Napa Valley and beyond! Our plumbers at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Napa also have extensive experience installing new septic systems. Get a handle on your home’s waste management with a new, functioning septic unit.

Factors to consider when deciding on a new septic system:

  • Size – How big is your home and household? How often do you use your drains and toilet? This will determine how big your septic tank should be.
  • Tank Design – The soil in your yard will dictate what kind of tank design is best.
  • Pump Style – Septic pumps come in two forms: centrifugal and turbine. Your overall budget will help you choose which works best for your property.

How to Maintain Your Septic System

You do not need to be a plumbing professional to do right by your septic system. You and your family can do little things to help maintain the health and functionality of your unit.

Some things you can do to maintain your system?

  • Only flush paper and biodegradable materials down the toilet.
  • Avoid flushing objects such as feminine hygiene products, contraceptives, wipes, and more.
  • Be mindful of what you put down your garbage disposal (50% of solids end up in the septic system, creating a greater risk for unwanted clogs).
  • Don’t rinse things like eggshells, coffee grounds, or grease down your garbage disposal.
