A septic system is a treatment system available on-site that acts as an alternative for municipal waste treatment centres. It is for properties that need water and sewage systems but are not connected to municipal sewer lines. It includes a septic tank, piping, and microorganisms that assist in processing the waste. Any waste that goes down the drain ends up in the septic tank for treatment. After treatment, the effluent turns into usable water to enter the water cycle.

If your commercial or residential property needs septic systems, we can help. We also provide other services, such as demolition and excavation.

This system uses a quality-controlled natural filtering peat moss, ideal for filtering and retaining pollutants until their degradation. It uses an organic filter to treat the contaminants and retains solids found in wastewater from the septic tank.

As the filter holds all pollutants and suspended solids, it prevents clogging and prolongs the life span. Ecoflos are easily accessible, which allows simple routine maintenance and makes it easy to verify the system’s good working order, therefore protecting your well and groundwater.

Ecoflo is a permanent system with only the filtering peat moss replaced every eight years. It’s a quarter of the size of a conventional system and blends discreetly with your home and yard with no mound, noise or odour.

The following are some commonly asked questions about our septic tanks in Sudbury:

  • Where Should a Septic Tank Be Installed?
    The placement of a septic tank is crucial because it will determine the quality of its functioning. When providing you with installation for your septic tank in Sudbury, we will examine your property to single out a suitable location for it. We will consider the following factors: The terrain: Septic tanks shouldn't be placed at the bottom of steep hills. The soil: The soil around the septic tank should typically have a high rate of absorption. The design of the land: Natural and man-made structures such as trees, water wells and buildings should be avoided to ensure that they don't negatively impact the tank.
  • How Long Will a Septic Tank Last?
    The duration of a septic tank's life can vary depending on factors such as maintenance, the materials used, the design, the workload, the quality of the drain field and more. With routine servicing from professionals like us, they can last for over 50 years.
  • Are Septic Systems Safe?
    Yes, septic systems are incredibly safe for homes, commercial, and industrial properties. Generally, property owners damage their septic tanks because they are not cautious about what they flush down their drains. For instance, corrosive materials can harm septic tanks' bacteria and interfere with optimal functioning. As long as you use products that are septic-safe and are mindful of what you're pouring into your tank, your septic tanks are safe.
  • How Much Will Septic Tank Installation Cost?
    There is no standard price for the cost of septic tank installation. The eventual price can depend on countless factors, such as the nature of the property, the required size of the septic tank and the complexity of the installation. To get a clearer idea, please reach out to us for a quote.
