There are 3 choices when fixing a septic system:

  1. The least expensive option is to modify your lifestyle to fit how your system works.
  2. We do minor repairs to get the most out of your current system
  3. The most expensive option is to make major repairs to your system.  With proper maintenance it will last you a lifetime.


Our Staff

The staff at Clay’s Septic & Jetting has over 100 years of combined experience serving residential and commercial septic systems. We understand that most people don’t really understand their system, what it does and how it works. That means they are less likely to be aware if it begins to malfunction, when a problem could be more readily diagnosed and fixed. After a certain period of improper operation, a septic system will ultimately fail completely, and at that point, the owner is in for a huge replacement bill.

We enjoy helping you understand your septic system and how it works. We like to be proactive in helping people understand the importance of maintaining the health of their septic system. So, with each service, we like to share our knowledge by informing customer about how their system is currently working and how to prevent problems down the road. That is why, with each pumping, we do a complete inspection of the entire septic system; the mainline, the septic tank and the leach field. We pump your tank completely empty and inspect the septic tank. We have you flush toilets to ensure that the main sewer line is clear and flowing properly. We also run a short performance test on your leach field to determine if it is working properly. And when we are finished thoroughly checking out your septic system, you will receive a full report with how your septic system is working, any repairs that are necessary to get your system back to working properly, and a map with GPS coordinates of where your tank is located.

If you already know your system need routine maintenance or even some minor repairs, give us a call or send an email to schedule a Clay’s Septic & Jetting visit.
