Septic Installation

Why choosing the right septic contractor matters:

Proper Installation: This is not a job you want to do again. A professional septic installer will have the expertise to assess the soil conditions, determine the appropriate system size, and install the system following local regulations and codes. Improper installation can lead to system malfunctions, backups, and environmental contamination.

System longevity and performance: A properly installed septic system is more likely to function efficiently and have an extended lifespan. Experienced installers like JK Enterprise understand the technical aspects of septic systems, such as proper tank placement, accurate pipe slope, and effective drainage field design. When these elements are correctly implemented, the system is more likely to operate optimally, reducing the risk of costly repairs or premature system failure.

Environmental protection: An improperly installed septic system can contaminate groundwater, nearby wells, rivers, and other water bodies. This contamination can harm aquatic life and pose health risks to those around your home. At JK Enterprise we consider environmental factors, such as the proximity to water sources, and ensure that the system is installed in a way that minimizes the potential for pollution.

Overall, choosing the right septic installer is vital to ensure a properly functioning system, compliance with regulations, environmental protection, and long-term reliability. At JK Enterprise of WNC, we provide service options post-installation including warranty and maintenance support, ensuring your system runs smoothly.

Septic Tank Pumping

Does Having Your Septic Tank Pumped Regularly Make a Difference?

Prevent System Failure: Over time, solid waste and sludge accumulate at the bottom of the septic tank. If left unchecked, this buildup can reach a level where it obstructs the outlet or inlet pipes, leading to system failure. Regular pumping removes these solids, helping prevent clogs, ensuring a smoothly running system.

Avoid Backups and Sewage Leaks: A full septic tank can cause sewage backups in your plumbing fixtures, such as toilets, sinks, or showers. These backups can be messy, unsanitary, and expensive to clean up. Pumping your septic tank reduces the risk of backups, protecting your home from potential sewage leaks.

Extend the Lifespan of Your Septic System: A well-maintained septic system can last for several decades. Regular pumping helps prevent unnecessary strain on the system, reducing the risk of costly repairs or premature failure.

It’s important to note that the frequency of septic tank pumping depends on various factors, including the tank size, household size, water usage, and local regulations. Consult with JK Enterprise to Learn More.

Septic Maintenance & Inspection

Septic Maintenance & Inspections are Vital to the longevity of your septic system.

These services include:

Regular Pumping: The septic tank should be pumped out at regular intervals to remove accumulated solids and prevent them from clogging the system. The frequency of pumping depends on factors like the tank size, household size, and water usage, but it typically ranges from every 1 to 5 years.

Septic Inspection shouldn’t ONLY enter your mind for a new home purchase. Regular inspections of the septic system are crucial to identify any potential issues or signs of failure. JK Enterprise of WNC can assess the condition of the tank, check for leaks or cracks, inspect the drain field, and ensure that the system is functioning properly.

Remember, the specifics of septic maintenance can vary depending on the system design, local regulations, and other factors. Consult with JK Enterprise to learn more.

Drain Field Installation & Repair

How a Septic Leach or Absorption Field Works:

Unsure of what a septic drain field is, or why it matters? If this is your first time living in a rural area, you have a lot to learn.

The Septic Tank: While most believe the tank is the entirety of the septic system, it’s only a portion of the full structure. The septic tank holds the wastewater from your household, allowing solids to settle at the bottom and oils and scum to rise to the top. The remaining liquid or effluent exits the tank and enters the drain field.

Distribution: Effluent is evenly distributed through a network of perforated pipes or distribution lines in the drain field. These pipes are laid in trenches or beds within the soil.

Soil Filtration: The effluent percolates through the soil in the drain field. The soil acts as a natural filter, removing pathogens, organic matter, and other contaminants.

Microbial Action: Beneficial bacteria and microorganisms in the soil break down and digest any remaining pollutants in the effluent, further purifying the water.

Absorption: The treated effluent is gradually absorbed into the soil, where it rejoins the groundwater system or is evaporated.

Installing or repairing a complex and elaborate system like this is a job for an expert. If done incorrectly, or as a DIY attempt, you may experience compliance issues (with county regulators), environmental complexities, or worse.
