King County Sewer Drain & Plum...

King County Sewer Drain & Plumbing is now my go to company for any sewer, drain, or plumbing issues! I called because of the coupon that was running and I expected them to give me the estimate but be pricey so I figured I would break even with the coupon. The technician came out, he was professional and courteous. My water heater went out the weekend after Thanksgiving and I was already strapped for cash after my Black Friday shopping spree in downtown Seattle and the eastside at Bellevue Square Mall!! He was able to replace the heating element, saving me tons of money and buying me some time before I have to buy a new water heater. I know only an experienced technician would think of replacing the element instead of charging me for an expensive new unit. I'm so pleased with King County Sewer Drain & Plumbing's affordable and fair pricing and I will definiteley call them for any issues I have with my toilets, sinks, drains or sewers!!

Camaiti C. rated

A+ Fischer Plumbing & Thank You. My grandparents needed some bathroom fixtures installed, a sink faucet & shower faucet/handle fixture. We had originally called Southwest Plumbing and waited weeks for the appointment. Southwest came in took a look around for 5 mins then tried to draw up a contract for over $1000!! So we gave them the boot and found Fischer Plumbing.Fischer came out in just a few days. Upon arrival the technician was courteous & professional. He worked his tuckas off to get things done right and in a timely manner. I left before the job was finished but my grandparents told me they were absolutely delighted with the service they received and the bathroom looked great! He even made sure to clean up when he was done. When it came time to pay the bill it was HUNDREDS less than what Southwest tired to charge them and Fischer even gave them a senior discount!I will definitely remember Fischer for the future.

I had a leaking hot water heater. When Fischer arrived the first thing they did was to advise me that the heater was probably still under warrantee and that I could likely avoid costly repairs by simply exercising the warrantee. This had not occurred to me since the heater was over 7 years old and the "Big Box" store where it was purchased from has a bad reputation for honoring their "warrantees." But the Fischer technician encouraged me to try and within 20 minutes the "Big Box" store had agreed to replace my hot water heater for free. Fischer obviously got nothing out of the deal, in fact it cost them at least an hour or more of their time plus truck and gas costs. But what they did get is a ton of respect from me and a guarantee that whenever I need a plumber they are the people I will call.

Michael from Fischer Plumbing showed up right on time. He was very helpful and professional. We told him what we were hoping to get fixed, and he said "no problem" and jumped right on it. We had a twenty-five year old toilet replaced in the master bathroom, and he fixed an outdoor faucet that was leaking. It was broken a few years ago, and our son's friend fixed it and put a valve in it. However, it would not completely shut off, and Michael from Fischer Plumbing came in and fixed it. This was our first time using Fischer Plumbing's Services. We heard about them through our daughter's friend's parents, and found out that our neighbor used Fischer Plumbing too, after the fact! Call them if you have a problem, they're awesome!

Tickled pink with Fischer Plumbing! Found a water leak under our kitchen sink the day before Thanksgiving. Fischer Plumbing sent a technician out within a few hours. He worked fast, showed me what had happened and told me what he was doing and what needed to be replaced. He quoted a reasonable hourly fee, said they only charge for time spent, guaranteed the work for a year, and said the office would bill us. Such a refreshing experience. The technician was personable yet efficient, got the work done faster than expected, took away the corroded old parts and left the space just about as clean as he found it. Exceptional experience! Next time we have plumbing issues, we won't hesitate to contact Fischer Plumbing.

Excellent job, wonderful and compassionate people and fast!!! We needed a water damage specialist for an emergency and they were here in an hour! Les Griffith was amazing and walked me through everything that they were doing and what I could expect. When they left on day one Les told me that he would call me the next day between 10 and 11... he did just that and was here 30 min later.I would recommend this company to anyone! Generally you meet plumbers and water damage specialists under less than ideal circumstances and this company and Les are wonderful!!!

Your motto of “The Plumber People Recommend” certainly applies in our case. We look forward to having the opportunity to recommend you as our preferred plumbing contractor, especially the excellent work of your employee Barry. Beyond a doubt he went over and above the call of duty in replacing our hot water heater. We needed a hot water heater replaced in the hardest of places, the crawl space! In fact the whole situation took ingenuity and skill to complete. Barry’s work was outstanding and we greatly appreciate his skill and determination to do a good job!

Just had Fischer plumbing come in and snake my sewer main. They came same-day, only an hour and a half after I called them and well within their quoted service window. Their cost was less than $250. They came out today after I sent Beacon Plumbing away when they quoted me $680+ for the same service (after being 1.5 hours late OUTSIDE their service window). The tech was super friendly and efficient and took less than an hour for the whole service. Thoroughly pleased!

I was having a leak for one of the pipes upstairs in the bathroom that was draining into the ceiling downstairs. Fischer Plumbing found it really fast and fixed it right away. They called when they were coming. I didn't have any problems. The price was very reasonable for what they offered. The plumber was very professional and very respectful. Great quality work.

I've used Fischer Plumbing twice now, and it's been just fine. They recently fixed the bathroom sink faucet because you couldn't push it on. It doesn't take a regular washer, so he had to take it in his truck and redo it. He did a really great job and saved me having to get a whole new one.

Did You Know?

If you're like most people, you don't give another thought to the water that goes down the drain after washing dishes, taking a shower, or flushing the toilet. But, if you are one of the many homeowners who rely on a septic tank to dispose of your wastewater, it would be smart to give your septic system some attention every so often.

There are four main parts to your septic system:

  • A pipe from your home to the septic tank
  • The septic tank, which is where wastewater, sludge, and scum accumulate
  • The drain​ field, also known as the leech​ field, where wastewater is directed after going through the tank
  • Soil, which filters the wastewater and aids in removing bacteria and viruses from it

It's the homeowner's responsibility to make sure all four parts of your septic system are in working order. A failed septic system is costly to repair or replace, can lead to health hazards in your home and community, and may even lower property values in your neighborhood.

A Homeowner's Responsibilities

Every homeowner who uses a septic system needs to ensure it stays functional. There are three elements to maintaining the system:

  • Inspections
  • Pumping
  • Septic system failure prevention

Inspecting a Septic System

Inspections should be at least an annual task. Some systems may require more frequent inspections. A homeowner can perform these inspections on his or her own, but hiring a professional is recommended. Contractors who regularly work with these systems generally have a better idea of what to look for and can better identify problems.

To begin, locate your septic tank. If the entry point is buried and there is no map, start by looking at the direction of the outbound pipes in your basement. Follow the pipes' direction into your backyard to locate the tank. When you think you're close, insert a probe into the soil until you find the piping. Your inspector should come ready with an insulated probe to use.

You should only have to go through this process one time. Once you find the piping and the tank, sketch a map for future use. Doing so will not only benefit you and future contractors you hire, but also the next owner of the home.

When the tank is located, you or the contractor will have to dig to uncover the manhole cover to access the tank's interior. Next, test your household water systems to make sure the septic system is working properly. Flush the toilets, turn on the faucets, and run any appliances that use water, like the dishwasher or washing machine. If water drains noticeably slowly, there could be an issue in your septic system that needs immediate attention.

Once you've determined that the system is in good order, it's time to measure the sludge and scum levels. Sludge collects at the bottom of the tank and is comprised of solid wastes. Scum floats to the top of the tank and is comprised of fats and oils. Both enter the tank through the inlet tee baffle, or the pipe that directs outbound water from the home to the tank. On the opposite side of the tank is the outlet tee baffle, which directs treated water to a second compartment in the tank for further treatment, or to the drain​ field. This baffle is the marker to measure scum and sludge against.

Scum levels should be at least 3 inches above the bottom of the outlet tee baffle. Sludge levels should be no more than 1 foot below the bottom of the baffle. If either of these are closer to the bottom of the baffle than they should be, it's time to have the tank pumped.

Next, take a look at the drain​ field, tank walls, and pipes. Any cracks in the walls or pipes need to be addressed right away to prevent septic system failure. The drain​ field should not have any odd or foul smells, and the grass shouldn't be soggy or full of puddles. Uncommonly green grass is also a sign that the drain​ field isn't functioning properly.

Pumping

Pumping is usually necessary every three to five years, but it ultimately depends on the size of the tank, the number of people in the household, and the types of appliances that are used. For example, a family of six with a 1,000-gallon tank might pump every 1.5 years, but a family of three with the same size tank might pump closer to every four years. Additionally, garbage disposals fill up the septic tank more quickly and result in the need to pump more often.

A professional should always pump the tank. They will have the right equipment and expertise to know how to safely and effectively remove the sludge and scum from the tank. Additionally, the fumes that are emitted from the tank are noxious and can be dangerous if inhaled.

Always be present for the pumping process. Though the contractor will have the right education and experience to do this task properly, it's important that you oversee the project. The maintenance of your septic system is ultimately your responsibility, not the contractor's. When observing the contractor's work, make sure:

  • The contractor uses the correct point of entry - the manhole opening should be used, not the inspection ports.
  • All scum and sludge is removed - there is no reason to leave any behind.

Septic System Failure Prevention

While inspections are usually an annual task and pumping occurs two or three times per decade, prevention is something that must always be kept in mind.

Never flush or pour chemicals down the drain. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Drain openers
  • Paints
  • Household cleaning chemicals
  • Motor oils and fuels
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Cooking oils and grease
  • Pesticides and herbicides

Introducing these substances to your septic system can cause damage to the tank or piping and contaminate the groundwater in your area.

Don't flush garbage down the toilet, including:

  • Diapers
  • Rags
  • Cleaning cloths
  • Dental floss
  • Sanitary napkins or tampons
  • Cat litter
  • Cigarettes

Practice water conservation to prevent flooding your system. Though your tank can handle many gallons of water, too much water at one time can overwork the system and cause solid waste to enter the drain​ field. Some tips for water conservation include:

  • Upgrade to low-flow faucets, toilets, and showerheads.
  • Use Energy​ Star appliances that are designed to use less water.
  • Don't let the water run excessively.

Preventing septic system failure also involves keeping the drain​ field clear. Never drive or park over the drain​ field, and don't allow livestock to walk over it. Heavy equipment should also be kept away from this area.

Common Septic System Problems

In general, a septic system is safe and easy to maintain, especially if you regularly inspect and pump it. However, there may come a time when you run into a problem that needs to be addressed quickly and correctly.

Clogs

Clogs or backups are usually caused by improper or too-infrequent pumping. Your tank is completely full, and solid waste is being forced through the outlet tee baffle and clogging it. Some signs that you have a clog include:

  • Wastewater backing up in your drains in your home
  • Foul odors in your home
  • Water draining slowly

To address this problem, call a professional to clean out your tank right away.

Broken Lines or Pipes

Broken elements of your septic system need to be addressed as soon as they are spotted. A number of factors can cause baffles, lines, and pipes to break or crack, including:

  • Digging in the wrong place
  • Sulfuric acid or rust deterioration
  • Tree-root infiltration

Using a special camera, a contractor should be able to locate the crack or leak and replace the part.

To prevent pipe damage, call 811 before you begin any project that would require you to dig. A professional can detect which areas you need to stay away from. Remember, there could be more than just your septic system beneath your land - wires and cables may also run through your property.

Prevent damage due to tree roots by periodically having a professional take a look at the trees nearby and assess their risk. Don't attempt to remedy the issue yourself using chemicals like copper sulfate or by cutting down the tree. A professional will know how to solve the problem for the long term and should be knowledgeable of any local environmental regulations regarding chemicals.

Health Hazards Associated with Septic Systems

When a septic system is working properly and is adequately maintained, harmful bacteria will be removed and won't affect the groundwater, people living in the home, or neighbors. However, a septic system failure comes with health risks that are best to avoid as much as possible.

Illnesses Caused by Failed Septic Systems

Nitrates normally get filtered out before wastewater reaches the drain​ field. However, if they are still mixed in with the water exiting the septic tank and make their way into drinking water, they can lead to an illness that affects infants. Methemoglobinemia, more commonly referred to as "blue baby syndrome," reduces infants' ability to move oxygen through their blood.

Other diseases that are associated with failed septic systems include:

  • Typhoid fever
  • Dysentery
  • Hepatitis

Water Pollution Caused by Failed Septic Systems

If your septic system is near a body of water, there is a chance that harmful bacteria and viruses from a failed septic system could spread farther than your property using the local waterways. Nutrients in the wastewater can cause algae to grow much faster than normal, blocking necessary sunlight from shining into the water to support other plant and animal life. Additionally, these plants will reduce oxygen levels in the water, leaving the environment less habitable for some animal life.

Too much algae and other plant life can also reduce the ability for people to use a body of water for recreational purposes. What's more, the bacteria and viruses included in the wastewater can also cause disease in the people swimming, boating, or fishing in the water. Fish and shellfish can also become contaminated, making them harmful to eat.

How to Choose a Septic Company

Your septic system is highly important to your home, and as such, it's vital to find a good company to help you with maintenance. Before hiring anyone, do some research into the company. Look online for reviews and testimonials. Also, ask your friends, family, or colleagues who have septic systems who they work with and why.

Program Benefits and Costs

Every contractor will offer different products and programs, even though they'll generally be able to accomplish the same tasks. Be sure to read the fine print and determine what services the company includes in their different programs.

These programs will also vary in cost between different contractors. In 2016, septic tank pumping and cleaning cost anywhere from $200 to $900, with most people spending about $375. Compare and contrast pricing as well as services covered by the program you choose.
