 Professional Septic Cleaning of Holding Tanks in Edmonton & Area

The best way to keep a healthy septic holding tank in Edmonton is to understand its inner workings. How does the waste behave, and how can you keep your tank healthy? It’s important to understand where the waste goes, and the structure of the tank itself. Depending on the type of system, the average septic tank system needs to be cleaned every two years, and keeping your septic tank clean is crucial to ensuring that the entire system continues to work properly. 


A clean septic tank in Edmonton will ensure better surroundings and reduce significant health hazards that can affect the neighbourhood. However, if it is neglected, it can lead to an unpleasant odour, and the untreated wastewater might overflow into your yard. Reduce the risk of structural damage such as cracks and leaks by regular cleaning of the septic tank in Edmonton. Periodically pumping and cleaning your septic tank also depends on the size of the tank, the number of people using the system, and if a garburator is used in the kitchen. If a garburator is used in the kitchen, the bacteria in the tank will not be able to break down the solids so the tank will need to be cleaned much more often.

What is a Sump Pump?

A flooded basement can cause damage to your home and can be your worst nightmare. A sump pump is a mechanism that can protect your home from the damage of heavy rains and rising waters. If neglected, the accumulated water can lead to enormous repair costs and major structural damages. At Ardalta Vacuum Truck Services Ltd, we can assist you with the most suitable sump pump for your home.


How Does a Sump Pump Work?


A sump pump moves water from the basement to the outside of your home. It consists of a naturally constructed pit. The sump pump is usually a hole carved below the main surface of the basement floor. This pit, also called a basin, holds the sump pump. The pump is fitted with valves that can assess the escalating water levels or pressure. When the water gets too high, the pump automatically starts pumping the excess water out of the basement and away from your property using a discharge line. This line, called an effluent line, is connected to a designated drainage area.

What’s the difference between a holding tank and a septic tank?


See the diagrams and find out!


Here, we present the basic liquid/solid layout of a septic tank. Wastewater enters the septic tank and separates into three layers:

  • A layer of scum composed of mainly soap, grease, and toilet tissue floats to the top.
  • Water, liquids, and suspended soils form the middle layer.
  • Resting on the bottom of the septic tank is a layer of sludge made up of heavy organic and inorganic materials.

The Benefits of Septic Cleaning of Holding Tanks


There are several risks of not cleaning the septic tank. The sludge from the tank can overflow into the drain field and back up into the house. This can cause severe damage to the entire plumbing system. Therefore regular cleaning of your septic tank is important to ensure that your system stays in working condition. There are many other benefits of getting your septic tank cleaned from time to time:

  • Protecting Your Family Against Diseases: Sewage contains various harmful pathogens that can cause diseases and infections. Sewage leaks and spills are a grave threat to your family’s health.
  • Saves Money: Routine septic cleaning can save you a lot of money in the long run. Timely cleaning of your septic tank can save it from any major repair costs. The professionals at Ardalta can spot issues in your system before they become a headache for you.
  • Good for the Environment: Untreated sludge may also find its way down to underground water reserves, contaminating usable water.
