Using a “sludge judge” or similar device, we determine how much sludge has accumulated on the tank bottom. It should not occupy more than 40% of the tank’s total volume or rise to the level of the baffles.
Frequent issues we find.
Every property is different, but after 6,000 inspections we’ve seen that these are the most common sewer system issues in Tulsa.
Elevated Sludge Levels
Debris collects in the tank and elevated leves indicate that the tank needs to be pumped.
Water should flow from the tank during use. Backups indicate that the system is not working properly.
Roots grow into the tank preventing proper operation of the system.
Aerator or Pump Problems
Aerobic systems use air and water pumps. These mechanical parts need service for optimal operation and can fail.
