Who Are We?

Welcome to D & S Sanitation!

All jokes aside, Poop is a serious business! When it comes to matters of the home, it’s always best to seek the professionals. Owner/operator Brian Falk strives to maintain the quality of service that customers have come to expect for nearly 20 years.

Maintaining your septic system is an all-important job that is best handled by the experts. Owners can have a clean, free-flowing system for many years, but if neglected, septic systems will eventually clog or fail, which besides posing a health hazard, leads to enormous repair costs or even larger replacement costs down the line.

What We Do Not Do?

We do not "clean" septic systems -- we pump them. Beware of services who offer to "clean" your septic system because the balance of bacteria in your system needs to remain constant in order to continue the breaking down process.

Frequently Asked Questions.

Septic & Lagoon Systems

Answer:   Septic tanks require pump outs when the solid waste accumulates to the capacity of storage. For most systems to operate optimally, pump outs should be scheduled when the tank reaches 30-50% of total capacity.

Answer:   The answer depends on these factors:

  • The size system you have
  • The number of people are using your system
  • The amount of water you use
  • The number and length of laterals you have

A qualified inspector can answer some of these questions to help you know for sure, but as a rule of thumb, it’s best to have your system checked at least every 2 years.

Answer:   Even though there are many products and some very convincing commercials out on the market today, every septic system professional, environmental and government websites all have the same answer, “NO!” Using additives to add or help bacterial breakdown of sludge is ineffective and may even cause larger problems. Research actually indicates that biological enzymes and other “miracle” additives do not improve septic system functions. The amount of bacteria or enzymes recommended are so small that any effectiveness is virtually impossible to detect.

Answer:   Septic systems were not intended for the disposal of food wastes, coffee grounds, grease or fat and in fact, these will harm the operation of the septic tank. However, if you cannot live without this modern convenience, just plan to have your tank pumped more frequently.

Answer:   There are lots of things you can do to help keep your system healthy. Conserving water by repairing leaky faucets and toilets, installing low-flow fixtures, turning off the water when brushing your teeth or when shaving reduces the load of wastewater your system has to handle. Avoid washing all of your laundry in one day – space out water use throughout the entire week. Protect the absorption area by keeping livestock (especially horses) off the lateral field. Don’t park cars, boats or heavy equipment on the leach fields so the ground doesn’t get compacted. Divert downspouts or other drainage away from soil absorption areas. And avoid flushing things like sanitary products, paper towels, disposable diapers, cigarette butts – even tissues. Toilet paper should be the only added material a toilet should flush.

What Our Customers Say About Us

Fred impressed me with his knowledge and straightforwardness on how to take care of my septic tank. He most definitely maintains his equipment and truck with excellence. I will be passing my experience on to my friends to call on Fred and D&S Sanitation with all septic problems as I've finally found someone with the integrity I've been searching for.
We had 5 days from the day the contract was signed to get the septic system inspected at our new home. Our county guy wouldn't touch it, so our realtor called Fred. Not only did he come out within the 5 days, but he came out on Labor Day! He completed the inspection, drained the tank, and chatted with us like an old friend. He gave us advice, and left us with a hand shake. We are sure to use him again in the future at our new home!
D&S is the one to call. This guys is A #1. We've had bad experiences and wished we had found him first. No doubt first class. I tell my friends he's the guy to call.
