Standard Septic Tank and Drain Field Service
Without proper maintenance over the years, sludge and other debris cannot be digested by the bacteria in the system. They accumulate in the drain field, causing a breakdown in your system. We can help you avoid this with proper care.
Rejuvenation for Your Drain Field or Dry Well
At Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Water Cleanup, we fix the system instead of replacing it. If you’re buying or selling a house or your system is slow and failing, we’ll work on your system to try to help you save thousands.
Maintaining your septic tank will protect the health and welfare of your family, community, and the surrounding environment.
