Routine maintenance allows you to catch issues before they become emergencies.
Pump your tank every 3-5 years or as frequent as your service provider suggests, based on technology and system usage.
Spread out your laundry loads over the course of the week.
Excessive water discharge into the septic system is known as “Hydraulic Overload” and is the number one killer of drainfields.
Choose one day a week for all bleach loads.
One cup of bleach to a 1000 gal tank kills 80% of the beneficial bacteria for up to 72 hours.
Clean your filter every 6 months.
Pay attention to your water bill!
Running or leaking toilets can also hydraulically overload your drainfield.
Put risers on your tank for easy inspections, quick access, and to save your back or wallet from having to dig up the lids everytime your system needs to be serviced.
Do not dispose of the following down the drain:
grease, fats, oils, pesticides, herbicides, paints, household chemicals, automobile fluids, strong medicines, strong disinfectants or bleaches, cleaning products, excessive citrus products, or other toxic products. If you wouldn’t put it in your body, don’t pour it down the drain.
Do not flush the following:
cigarette butts, disposable diapers, baby wipe, flushable wipes, cleaning wipes, feminine hygiene products, condoms, hair, coffee grounds, egg shells, rags, paper towels, pet waste, bandages, etc. ONLY flush human waste and toilet paper.
PLEASE DO NOT USE!
Additives advertised for septic systems. These products do more harm to a drainfield than they do good for the tank.
Home brewery waste, strong antibacterial soaps, vinegars, and epsom salts should be used sparingly and whenever possible, disposed of outside the system.
Downy and Snuggle fabric softeners – these products contain animal fats that clog pipes.
Water softeners clog drain lines and baffles, inhibiting the effluent flow.
If you have a garbage disposal, use it sparingly.
Put food waste, grease, etc. into the solid waste bin or compost it. Garbage disposals chop particles so fine, they don’t sink or float. and then clog filters and drain lines.
Detergents: liquid, low sudsing, low phosphate, and biodegradable.
USE FABRIC SOFTENER SHEETS IN THE DRYER. NOT LIQUID IN THE WASHER.
Cleaning Products: Liquid, non-chlorine, bio-degradable and non-toxic.

I called them on a recommendation from a Niehbor. They were able to come to my house same day. Jacob and Luis are extremely professional and found the problem immediately. They walked me through what needed to be repaired and got it done quickly and thoroughly. A Advanced was upfront and clear about pricing which was reasonable. Thanks to Aurora for helping get this visit set up in a timely manner. Happy customer here
The pump went out on our septic system and we had this confirmed on a Friday. We had just had our inspection a few weeks prior and weren’t due for pumping yet for likely another year, but because the pump went out suddenly, we needed pump service on that Friday. The guys that came out, Matt and Justin, they did a very nice job for us and my husband enjoyed chatting with them. They weren’t able to replace the pump then due to not having the part with them, so I called the office and they were able to schedule us for Sunday morning. Joe called to let us know he was on his way and when he arrived, we were so impressed with his manners and positive attitude. He made sure we understood everything he was about to do before getting started, made sure he addressed any questions or concerns we had, and then went right to work. He installed the new pump and did all the necessary testing for us and gladly, our new pump was covered under warranty and we had a really good outcome. When Joe finished our install, he spent a few minutes talking with us about our system and shared a lot of great information with us. It’s clear to us that he is extremely knowledgeable, personable, and goes the extra mile for his customers to feel at ease and have a positive experience while he’s there and to feel really good about the work he performed once he’s gone. Joe is definitely a shining star and deserves to be recognized as such. Also worth nothing, the two individuals who answered the phone when I called in were extremely professional and courteous, particularly the gentleman working that Friday when I called upset that we weren’t able to change the pump the same day. He stayed calm and polite throughout the call, and while I can’t recall his name, I will say, he did a beautiful job of representing the company and also deserves recognition because I wasn’t the easiest person to deal with at that moment (I apologize). Lastly, thank you to Adell for being so kind to us and explaining things so nicely and for doing your very best to make us feel valued and heard.
Can't say enough about this company or the technician who serviced my septic. I spoke with Courtney in the office who was very helpful and friendly to get me scheduled for a septic pumping. James came out and couldn't have been more friendly or knowledgeable. They send a picture of the technician with a bio so you know who to expect. He took the time to explain how the system looked and tips on how to maintain it going forward. James was Very professional and fast. I won't go any place else next time I need any sort of septic pumping, inspection or repair. Wonderful experience and I would highly recommend to anyone.
Last week our toilets backed up. My wife is pregnant and uses the restroom often. The same day we called we had a service team out addressing the issue. They were very polite and professional and explained the process and what needed to be done to correct the issue. Greatly appreciate their fast response time and very professional approach. Highly recommend this company and their people.
We had Joe out to evaluate our septic tank to see if the issues we were experiencing were serious. Joe was very kind, patient and informative. He was also very careful to make sure everything was closed up before he left so my dogs would be safe. It seems like a little thing but so many contractors have left gates and doors open and unintentionally endangered my beloved pets.
Great company to work with!! In the last stages of getting her house ready to sell so she could move into a retirement home, my mom-in-law found she needed a whole new septic system, and a complex one on a very challenging lot. Brian at Rise Septic Design came up with a design and he recommended working with A Advanced. Rob, Tyson, Miranda, Roslyn, and the rest at A Advanced were very helpful, doing not only the installation but handling the title paperwork with the County for a very reasonable cost. A key thing I can say is that there were the typical complications during construction, and Rob and Tyson were very professional in working with me to come up with solutions and keep the job moving. It was a pleasure to work and the whole crew, the system was approved by King Co, and the house is now sold.
From the Saturday evening emergency septic pump, to the drain field evaluation and rehab 10 days later. The technicians, office staff, sales reps and everyone my wife or I spoke to were amazing. Thomas and his coworker who did the Septic pumping were friendly and courteous. Ryan, who did the initial site visit for the Septic rehab answered, or returned, all my calls in a timely manner. Taylor who did a second site visit for mapping out all that needed done. Eliseo and his coworker who worked straight through the day to get the Drainfield rehab completed. Lennie, in the office who spoke to my wife and assured her of everything. A fantastic company, personable and friendly. 10/10 would work with again.
I called A advanced septic and construction services because my septic alarm was going off. I called their 24 line at 2am because it was going off at that time and I panicked.They were very nice about telling me that they would send someone that same day in the morning once I told them what was going on (I wasn’t getting backed up water into my house so I knew it was ok)I called other companies that also had a 24 hour number and no one answered even when their website said they were already opened. A-advanced called me back at about 6 am that they had a technician ready and would be on the way. They were very clear about pricing and steps.The technician got here, talked to us and explained everything. I felt very confident and comfortable with their work by this time because they explained everything after an inspection , the technicians were very knowledgeable, Their prices were also very good. They were out of my property very quickly and took care of the problem. I had my septic pumped because I had waited too long to clean out my filter and it could damage more things. I will definitely be recommending A-advanced to my neighbors and family members. Thanks A-advanced
Doug came out to pump my septic tank and he was very friendly very knowledgeable. And he did the job great. But his personality won me over.. this man is amazing and should be told so by his company too. He represented his company in a very positive good way. And I'd recommend this company and most definitely ask for Doug again.
I recently had an issue where my downstairs toilet was backing up. I removed my septic tank lids and saw my solids tank was full - due to my not having the system pumped them out in way too long. I called some septic companies for an emergency cleaning, but all were booked at least a week out. One of the septic companies said A Advanced might be able to come out that day. I called A Advanced at 11:30 AM and they said they could make it out between 2:00 and 7:00. The technician Dillon arrived at 3:15 and after apologizing for what he was about to see, I showed him the disastrous tank. He didn't even blink an eye, although I am sure he wanted to back up the truck and go back to their yard. Dillon went straight to work and after an hour plus of cleaning he had our tanks completely empty. Dillon saved the day. It cost more for the emergency clean out, but it was well worth it. Dillon did a great job and left a clean job site. I really appreciated that A Advanced was able to make it out the same day. So, Thanks Dillon and thanks A Advanced., I would recommend A Advanced to anyone needing a septic cleaning.
Both John and Ahkeem were professional and also personable. They did a great job at explaining the situation and giving clear precise answers to any questions I had. They were both knowledgeable. They also did a very thorough job in the data available and making sure my contact information was correct. They fixed my issue in a efficient matter. It was a great experience and wouldn’t hesitate to call them back. Five star experience. Thanks guys.
A Advanced Septic is great.Scheduling the work was easy. Those who worked the phones were very friendly and knowledgeable. Matthew did a fantastic job on site, though I slowed him down with all my talking, and counting out the cash. (We had some laughs) I wish him well.This is the second time we have hadA Advanced Septic to our home, both techs were top notch. I'd have A Advanced Septic out next time, if I wasn't moving to Florida.
Septic inspection and Septic pumpFrom the first phone call I was very impressed, I was calling around for pricing but after calling 6 other places, the phone was answered and they were on it.I was recommended to them by calling Hart, Good call! Thank you!The person that did our work knew his stuff! Much appreciated, he was very professional and did what he needed to do to get his work done ✔Happy Friday.... we do need other work, dang it but also good to know. We will be working with you again soon. Thanks again Kim
Really professional and incredibly helpful customer service.We called around for quotes to pump our septic system, I was walked through the process and all the fees. No ‘hidden” charges and was even told about a current coupon they had going. I actually called two other companies including who we had used before but was drawn back to Advanced, how nice they were, how quick they could fit us in and how comparable to other companies they were.Service techs came out on time after a phone call and text giving us a heads up they were on their way and WHO would be showing up. While pumping the technician let us know our septic was actually a 2-chamber system, that we only had uncovered one lid and asked if we knew where the other access lid was (even offered to dig for it but since we weren’t sure and they do charge to dig we declined) and told us how to find out more about our system.We were a little skeptical since we had the system pumped 6 years ago and that company never said a word. After digging through Pierce County records we found it WAS a 2 chamber system, where the lid was and called Advanced back to pump the other side. When I called I barely had to say anything, just who I was and they brought up all previous notes and knew what I was calling about.Since we had already paid for septic pumping they only charged us a service call and pumping per gallon! The other company six years ago didn’t even notice and didn’t pump both sides! We could have had a major problem in a few years and this was all avoided by Advanced's attention to detail. We sure appreciate it and will definitely only call them in the future.
Emailed company for a bid like at 7:30 at night and by 8 that night Adam called me and gave me a straight forward bid. I was digging up my own lids to save money and he was more than helpful in directing me where to dig and said not to hesitate if I needed and further information. Scheduled a routine septic tank pump out for the following Monday. Sheldon & Dillon called me 30 minutes before arrival and gave me a heads up they were on their way. These guys went right to work and got the job done. True professionals. Would not hesitate to use this company again.
Jeremy was very respectful, responsive and professional. He spent a lot of energy diagnosing the problem and worked hard to find a solution. We appreciate his attention to safety and that he cleaned up after finishing. He made sure his charges were fair and not overwhelming, explaining everything to us clearly. Definitely will call him if we have any other issues in this future.
We’ve had nothing but a positive experience with these folks over the last couple of years. Everyone ranging from the phone operators to the on-site service guys have been totally professional and personable. A really cool feature they provide is a text message with the name and picture of the service technician who will be providing the service for you.Definitely recommend them.
A Advanced Septic was referred to us by our realtor to perform the essential pumping and inspection required by our county. Adam with Advanced was very responsive with the first interaction and was quick to give us a quote. Their pricing was very reasonable and was much less compared to others. Adam was patient with the process we had to go through with payment and was willing to jump on a call whenever we had questions. Our Technician was on time the day of service was quick and even let us know how much digging would be and let my husband help out to save us a little money. Overall I would recommend A Advanced Septic to anyone.
A Advanced Septic was able to schedule the job for a quick completion, way faster than the other septic companies I called. Sid E. and Brandon showed up and worked efficiently on a pretty difficult locate and dig out job during the heat of the day. They busted their butt to get the job done as quick and safe as possible. Sid did a great job of keeping me updated on the process and there were no surprises when the job was done. I highly recommend Sid, Brandon, and A Advanced for all of your septic needs.
