Foothill Sanitary Septic is a full service septic systems company for any and all of your septic system needs. A septic system on your property is your waste water treatment plant. A septic system differs from a sewer system in the fact the property owner is responsible for the septic system maintenance. Septic system care requires daily management by using the system properly. The owner’s knowledge of the care and maintenance requirements for their septic system is an essential first step in ensuring a healthy septic system. The owner should know what type of system they have, the property location of the septic tank and drain field and acquire the basic knowledge of how it works. With this knowledge, the owner can better understand the importance of proper care. Please visit our web site pages on “Septic Dos & Don’ts“, “Septic Systems – Basic Operation” and “Types of Systems” and spend a few minutes to learn about these topics.

Septic Tank Pumping
Pumping the solids out of BOTH sides your septic tank at the appropriate interval is one of the most “ESSENTIAL” items you can do to keep your system running effectively. Lack of pumping is one of the most common reasons of major failure. The higher the level of solids in your tank, means more suspended solids going to your drain field plugging the soil absorption. Nothing removes the solids/sludge from your tank except pumping. Even city sewer treatment plants need to get rid of their solids. They are typically sent to drying beds where the solids can be removed from the premises.

Electronic Tank Location, Camera Inspection
Foothill Sanitary Septic is equipped with the latest equipment that allows us to find your tank using transmitters and sensing technology. As a full service septic company, we have to locate septic tanks all the time in order to inspect, repair, pump and maintain the systems. As a homeowner you need to know where your septic tank and drain field is located. If you are unsure of the location of your tank, Foothill Sanitary Septic can locate the tank for you before you construct that shed our pour that concrete patio. We also use cameras to inspect the inside of your piping.
Septic Tank Risers & Covers
Foothill Sanitary Septic installs septic tank risers and lids for your septic tank. A riser is an extension from the top of the tank to the surface. For tanks that are buried, you have to dig each and every time you pump, service, inspect or repair a problem in the septic tank(s). Risers and lids will pay for themselves over time. With risers installed, the cost of an emergency call during the weekend or after hours can be reduced significantly, thereby, paying for the riser installation cost on one visit. We recommend having them installed when performing maintenance, when the tank is already located and the yard is already dug up.
Septic Tank Installation, Excavation Services
Foothill Sanitary Septic performs septic tank and system installations. We provide excavation services with our KX41-3V excavator for everyday digging. It is small enough to fit in most back yards but still large enough to get the job done. It has rubber crawler tread so as to not inflict damage to lawns and sidewalks like an excavator with steel track treads. Larger equipment is used when doing septic tank installations. A septic system has many components that need to be taken into consideration. From site evaluation, system design, soil percolation testing to installation and service, Foothill Sanitary Septic can help you get started in the right direction.
Drain Field Services
Foothill Sanitary Septic performs many services that are particular to your drain field. The drain field is one of the three main components of a septic system. It is critical the drain filed works as it was designed – to distribute the waste water uniformly so the soil can absorb the water without being over loaded. Foothill Sanitary Septic can jet the leach lines to clear obstructions and repair damaged lines. In some instances the blockage of the drain pipes is caused by roots. Foothill Sanitary Septic can extract the roots. We also have a product that can be put in the discharged waste water every 6 months to inhibit the growth of roots near your drain pipes. (Aquaworx)

Depending on the type of system, these removable components may include: baffles, filters and strainer baskets.
