Cost-Effective, Dependable & Thorough Septic Tank Pumping, Cleaning and Maintenance Services for Newman, Patterson, Vernalis & Surrounding Areas

A-1 Septic offers expert septic tank pumping, cleaning, and maintenance services in and near the communities of Newman, Patterson, and Vernalis. These services can be provided on an as-needed or regularly scheduled basis. While on site to pump out your tank, we also visually check for problems with your septic system, such as incorrect piping, wet spots in the yards, or leaks in the septic tank itself. Problems like these can lead to costly repairs down the line, such as leach line additions, septic tank replacements, or entire septic system replacements. If we notice anything wrong with your system, we will let you know immediately, and can recommend a cost-effective solution.

Use Cleaner Innovations™ Septic Cleaner For a Well-Balanced Septic Tank

We can also add natural bacteria septic cleaner to your septic tank to help counteract the damaging effects of modern chemical and chlorine cleaning products. It comes in water soluble, easy-to-use, 2 oz. packets that can be flushed directly down your toilet bowl. For a nominal add-on charge, we can deposit our septic cleaner directly into your tank during our pumping visit.
