Pumping your septic system is actually more involved than most people realize. In Minnesota, the rapid changes of weather (often times in extremes) can cause complications in otherwise healthy systems. Having your tank pumped provides an opportunity to perform a quick check up on your system in general. Our residential pumping service provides septic cleaning and inspection of your tanks.
We access your tank through the manhole cover, measure the solids accumulation, and then pump the tank, backflushing or power agitating the tank to remove all the solids. It’s also important to verify baffle placement and inspect the tank walls/floor for root intrusion, cracking, or erosion.
Think of your septic system as actually a miniature waste-water treatment plant. Like any treatment plant, some repair and general care are required, but with regular maintenance, your system will serve you for many years.

A riser is placed on your septic tank to bring up the manhole cover to ground level for easier access and cleaning. If the manhole to your septic tank is not at ground level, our technicians would need to dig down to gain access to your tank for routine cleaning or maintenance.

This is the septic maintenance people you want. These men are highly trained and knowledgeable in every aspect of taking care of our sewer systems. We had our sewer pumped by Lee a few weeks ago, and I didn’t think there was a more courteous, super-hard-working person out there yet. Also knowledgeable about every aspect of sewers. He worked so hard on our sewer [at] my folk’s place before they passed on, and [I] don’t think it ever got pumped. It was scary to see it so full of hard sludge and that had to be broke down to get the job done; with every care, Lee got the job done. We sure can appreciate a person that goes the extra mile and got the job done the right way!! Thanks, Lee and Northland for having a hard-working group of people working for you!!! We now have a permanent company to take care of our sewer. Thanks again!!
