How Do I Take Care of My Septic System? Our Septic Maintenance Services in Orlando Is The Answer!
Septic Maintenance in Orlando – An ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure. The most important step in maintaining a healthy and functional septic tank is regular septic tank pumping and inspection. On average most households should have their systems pumped every 2 to 5 years. How long you wait just depends on your water consumption and the size of your household.
We often hear our customers say they wish they had a city sewer to save money. But the fact is, septic systems are much more cost efficient than city sewers. The average city sewer bill is between seventy and one hundred dollars each month. Your septic system on the other hand, asks for less than one hundred dollars a year. So in reality, even with regular septic maintenance, most homeowners will save money.

Very knowledgeable, friendly, and showed up on time.
“Awesome service! Very knowledgeable, friendly, and showed up on time. Had a backup issue with our 25-year-old septic system this morning. Called and spoke with Frank at 7:30 AM. He was able to be out this afternoon with his team to mitigate the issue. Did not try to push expensive repairs, but gave helpful recommendations for sustaining our old system. I will definitely be contracting Clark Septic when we decide to refurbish/replace our existing system!”
