Well, whatever you want, instead of the water bill. Express Septic Pumping is your #1 service company. Serving the Treasure valley. We’re here to help you with all your plumbing needs.
Fix leaks – We can’t tell you how many times we’ve serviced residential septic systems where there’s a leaky faucet or toilet in the home. Not only can minor leaks waste water and make your water bill higher than it needs to be, but they can also contribute to problems with your septic system.
Run the washer and dishwasher when full – How many times have you ran the dishwasher when it was only half full? Or turned on your washer with only a few items of clothing in it? In order to conserve water. Make a commitment to yourself to only run theses appliances when they’re full.
Think before you flush – Every time you flush that allergy-infused tissue, you use up to seven gallons of water. Put it into the trash can instead. Don’t use the toilet to flush that scary spider either.
Install water saving shower heads and faucets – These are designed to save you water and are easy to install yourself, which is cheap and quite effective. Also, don’t take long showers. You use up to ten gallons of water every minute you’re standing there.
We care about water conservation and helping keep not only your septic system in peak operational performance, but the environment as well.
