Pump Tank Services: Removing Water and Waste Material

Septic Tank Service in Kansas City Most septic systems use gravity to transport wastewater away from your home. However, water and waste material will accumulate, requiring pump tank services to remove them. How Water and Waste Are Removed Commercial pumping services generally use pump trucks to remove septage. It’s a professional job since it involves potentially hazardous materials. Rather than bury it in a dump, the company must adhere to federal regulations, from burial in an approved landfill to treatment in a cesspool, to conversion into fertilizer for commercial farms. Another use for septic waste is to generate electricity. Methane can power fuel cells when broken down. In 2004, fecal matter was used in Seattle, WA, to power about 1,000 homes, according to MSNBC. The frequency of septic tank pumping depends on tank capacity, daily volume, and presence of solids. At A-1, we recommend that residential septic tanks be pumped

Pipe Relining Prevents Landscape Destruction, Saves Homeowners Money & More

The Benefits of Pipe Relining in Kansas City There are few things Kansas City homeowners dread hearing from their plumbing contractor more than that their pipes need replacement. It’s an expensive and time-consuming process, but the alternative—letting leaks and holes in their pipes to grow, wasting water and potentially causing contamination—is even worse.

Plumbing to Consider Before Remodeling Your Bathroom

Check Your Plumbing During Remodels Before you start tearing out the tub, shower, sink, and countertops, you need to decide what sort of finished design you want with your newly remodeled bathroom.

Do pipes run under the floor or inside the walls? Knowing where the water and drain lines run will help you avoid accidentally breaking them when you start tearing out existing fixtures. Do you want to move the toilet, tub, shower, or sink? Relocating these features often requires modifying existing water lines and moving drain lines to the new locations. It is highly recommended to use a professional plumber for this part of your project. Do you need to raise the floor to accommodate a new shower/tub, new drains, and/or water
