Septic tank cleaning and preventative maintenance keeps your septic running smoothly. Your septic system is responsible for collecting the waste removed from your pipes. To keep your septic system from failing and avoid overflow of toxic solids, it needs to be pumped on a regular schedule of 1-3 years depending on usage.

Enzyme Program

Waste digestant added to your septic system regularly will help maintain the proper functioning of the system and prolong the life of the system. American Grease and Septic offers a 3-year enzyme program to maintain the health of your septic system.

An enzyme program for septic tanks is a series of treatments that use enzymes to help keep your septic system healthy. Enzymes are proteins that can break down organic matter, such as grease, oil, and food waste. When these substances are broken down, they are less likely to clog your septic system and cause problems. Waste digestant added to your septic system regularly will help maintain the proper functioning of the system and prolong the life of the system.
