A damaged or malfunctioning septic tank can be a major inconvenience, sometimes leading to sewage backing up into your home or your drain field leaking in your yard.

OZ Sanitation is a Connecticut-based company specializing in septic services. Whether your problem is a simple broken pipe or a seriously cracked septic tank, we can fix it for you efficiently and with minimal disruption to your yard and home. Our experienced team can complete septic tank repairs throughout Connecticut.
If you suspect that there is a problem with your septic tank but are unsure of what it is, we can complete a thorough evaluation to assess the condition of your septic system. We begin each evaluation by gathering relevant data, including the age and size of your septic tank, your septic system’s design, your usage of the system, and garbage disposal or water softener systems in your home, and any drainage issues you have had on the property. We then conduct testing to assess the soil conditions, drainage effectiveness, and groundwater levels. If necessary, we will open up your tank to examine the tank and see the water level. This will show us if there is clogging, a leaking pipe, tank deterioration, or other problems. A thorough evaluation will enable us to locate the problem and then complete the necessary repairs.
Minor septic tank repairs include replacing filters, replacing baffles, replacing distribution boxes, cleaning drain and sewer lines, and replacing broken pipes. To complete these repairs, we don’t need to uncover the entire septic tank, so we can usually do them with a small amount of targeted hand digging. This means your yard will hardly be disrupted, and we can complete the repair quickly.
Major repairs are necessary to deal with large problems such as a cracked septic tank or malfunctioning leaching area. Completing a major repair is a more involved process and will sometimes involve replacing your entire septic tank or leech field. We begin major repairs by thoroughly evaluating your septic system tank. We may also need to complete deep hole and percolation testing to assess the groundwater levels and other conditions. At each step, we carefully follow the Connecticut Health Code and work together with your local health department to ensure that the entire process meets your town’s requirements. With major repairs, we usually need to use excavating equipment in order to dig down to your septic tank. Once the repairs or installation are complete, we will carefully replace your soil. If you choose, we can even reseed the disturbed area to completely restore your yard to its previous condition.
If your septic system has substantial problems, you may need to replace it. We are highly experienced in completing septic tank installations around Connecticut and are happy to complete the entire process for you. We start by designing a new septic system, including obtaining approval from your town’s health department. We can base the design on your previous septic system or complete something new that meets your household’s needs. We will then install the new septic tank and/or leaching field in your yard. Our professional team can complete this process quickly in order to create minimal disruption. Typically, we can complete most installations within 5 days. You will be able to use your plumbing for most of this time. We complete each installation by restoring your yard to its previous condition.
