Neglected Septic Pump Screens

Here is a video of what happens when these screens are not cleaned annually.  And there is no “septic technician” in a bottle.  There’s no magical chemical that you flush that can clean this screen.  It needs to be completely disassembled and cleaned.  There’s no other way around it.

The consequences of not performing this maintenance, will be a pump that is starved and eventually burns up.  And these are not cheap pumps at all.  They start out at about $400 to replace and on up.  And I really mean that.  On up.

Enjoy the video and thanks for reading,

  2. Oh my, it is so unpleasing to the eyes. Very yuckie! This is a lesson that we should do, thanks for keeping us informed in cleaning the septic screen.

  3. As we all have seen without septic inspection, septic tank is full slug and soiled which are main the cause of clogging.
