Septic Tank Cleaning

Septic Tank Cleaning for Calgary Homes

Are you looking for septic tank cleaning in Calgary and the surrounding areas? Firstly, keeping your residential septic tank clean is a matter of public and personal health; avoiding expensive repairs that disrupt your life comes in a close second. Take care of your family and property with regular septic tank cleaning in Calgary and the surrounding areas from The Drain Doctor.


The entire purpose of septic tank cleaning is to keep waste solids from building up and eventually plugging the tank’s line into the house. These solids can make the pump system for your septic field fail, with nasty and expensive results.


If the field system is set up as a natural drainage type, then the solids can go down into the field and plug the line. The clogging caused will prematurely fail your field, and hence result in costly replacements.

Signs It’s Time to Clean Your Septic Tank

Don’t wait for drain backups where you need repairs rather than a routine septic tank cleaning. That means knowing the level of accumulated sludge which you cannot see without opening the tank.


Letting The Drain Doctor professionals check the sludge buildup in your septic tank is the safest course of action. Our technicians are trained and certified in confined space entry. They will remove the tank’s lid carefully and are prepared for the dangerous hydrogen sulfide (H2S) gas that comes from human waste in an oxygen-deprived container.

Benefits of Septic Tank Cleaning

  • Helps get rid of sludge and solid wastes

Recommended Maintenance

You need your septic tank cleaned every 1 – 2 years, depending on the size of the tank and the number of people in the home. If there has been an unusually high amount of rain, then emptying the tank allows for some relief for the field system.
