Can you pump from this pipe?
February 6, 2022
That depends on what you have: Cleanout – cannot be used for pumping Cleanouts are about 4″ across (usually with a twist off cap) that are installed on the line between the house and the tank.

Don’t skip a well inspection just because the water works!
February 5, 2022
We get a lot more requests for septic inspections than we do well inspections but we find at least as many issues with wells. I think buyers and agents turn on the water in the house and go “oh there is water, the well must be fine” and that is Not Necessarily True. We frequently....Read More

Drains in the house are smelling, bubbling, draining slowly, or not draining at all. Is it only happening in one drain or....Read More
