Septic tanks offer a solution for Perth area homeowners without access to the city’s sewer system, allowing you to flush waste and grey water out of your home. However, your septic tank is not a permanent holding facility. Eventually, it will need service and possible even septic tank repair.
How long has it been since you had your septic tank pumped? If it has been five years or longer, then chances are good that you are about to experience a major septic problem. As your tank fills, it will take longer for water to drain from sinks and tubs. You may also notice foul odours coming from your drains as the sewage backs up closer and closer. If it has been a while since your tank was pumped, Hilton Plumbing can help.
While it is hoped that your septic tank will stand the test of time, they can experience a wide range of problems that may necessitate septic tank repair. One of the most common issues is that grease builds up in the drain pipe, slowing the flow of waste into the tank. This grease must be manually removed to restore the flow of water.
Additional issues that may arise with the tank include cracks in the tank wall or lid, or blockages at the outlets that lead to the drain field. Damage from tree roots penetrating the tank, or stemming from ground movement, will also need to be repaired.
The leach field, or drain field, is the area of your yard where liquid from the septic tank is released. These pipes can also suffer from issues. Older, corrugated pipes with drain holes cut into them can clog up over time, causing sewage to back up into the septic tank, and then into your home. It can also cause dirty water to percolate up through the soil, creating standing puddles of sewage in your yard.

I have used Hilton Plumbing and Electrical three times now and will continue to and recommend them to anyone. They did one small and two big jobs for us and have proven themselves to be punctual, efficient, clean and friendly. Please do yourself a favour and call them next time you need a plumber or an electrician. You will be glad you did.
I was very impressed with the quality and speed of the job I had done by Hilton Plumbing. Their customer service was great and their prices were excellent. My hot water system was installed very fast. I highly recommend Hilton Plumbing
I’ve used these guys twice now, would use them again! Very timely turn around to get someone out, they are knowledgeable, and actually focus on helping to get an outcome you want rather than just getting the job done quickly. The plumber I had out today went over the pricing structure beforehand so I could decide if I was happy with different options. Great experience.
