Septic System Repair & New Installation
As recognized leaders in the field, let us be your choice to install baseline septic systems or aerobic treatment units for any new construction or replacement of existing septic systems. Martin Septic Service offers free estimates on all new installations and on repairs/replacement of your system. There are different types of repairs/replacement options for your system that we try to accomplish in a timely manner to best serve you, keeping in mind that every home is different, therefore, every repair is different. Heavy equipment is needed to effectively complete these jobs, but after grading and sod your yard will look good as new.
Aerobic Treatment Units
Florida law requires many homes in Florida to have an aerobic treatment unit installed; along with these units comes an annual operating permit fee through the state of Florida, as well as an annual inspection policy agreement with a licensed septic contractor. Martin Septic Service currently maintains approximately 1,500 systems.
Martin Septic Service is certified by the following manufacturers: AquaKlear, Delta Whitewater, Clearstream, HOOT, Cajun Aire/Alliance, BEST, Singulair, Hydro-action, Alliance, and FAST.
Our company employs highly trained/experienced technicians to evaluate and repair any complications or issues you may be having with you ATU in a quick/efficient timely manner.
Maintaining your septic system is as important as routine maintenance on your vehicle. To ensure longevity and proper function of your septic system, it is recommended that you maintain your system on a regular basis (every 3–5 years). By pumping, you are removing the sludge that builds up in the tank before it reaches your drainfield and reducing the strength of hydrogen sulfide that builds in the open air space of a septic tank.
Keep in mind that a septic tank and drainfield are located underground; therefore the sod and some landscaping will be disturbed in the area of the system.
Septic System Inspections & Tank Certifications
When purchasing a new home, it is common and important for you to schedule a home inspection. It is equally important for you to schedule an inspection of the septic system. During this inspection, Martin Septic will locate and pump the septic tank(s) to perform inspection of the tank looking for any signs of deterioration/corrosion and to ensure the tank is structurally sound and water tight. The tank size, type of tank (concrete/fiberglass or poly), and integrity of tank will be noted on the inspection form. Also noted will be whether the tank is baffled and outlet filter or deflection device is present. The pumping portion of the inspection can be waived by the customer; however, without pumping, the technician cannot attest as to whether the tank can be certified.
Once the tank is pumped, the technician will begin inspecting the drainfield. The technician will run water to the drainfield from the outlet end of the septic tank for approximately 20-30 minutes to ensure the drainfield is accepting water and functioning properly at the time of the inspection. According to the EPA, the life expectancy of a drainfield is approximately 17 years. Picture in your mind a sponge and the purpose of a sponge is to absorb water. Once the sponge is saturated, there is no place for the water to go. A drainfield works the same way, once saturated it will begin backing up into the home. The technician will note drainfield material/type.
Lift Station Installation & Maintenance
Martin Septic offers routine maintenance/inspections of lift stations. Your lift station consists of electrical components and an effluent sewage pump located inside a tank that lifts the effluent by dosing to the drainfield throughout the day. As with any mechanical device, over time there are need repairs and/or replacement.
Charlotte County Low Pressure Systems-Mini Sewer
Some areas of Charlotte County are serviced by the County Municipality. However, some of those properties require what is referred to as a Low Pressure System-Mini Sewer. This is a septic tank with an effluent pump located inside to move the effluent from the septic tank to the County Sewer main. If you are building a new home and this is a system you are in need of, please contact Martin Septic for pricing.
