Let’s Keep a Lid on It: Everything You Need to Keep Septic Riser Lids in Good Repair

Standard Riser LId

Every year headlines blazon news such as, “Grandmother trapped in Septic Tank,” “Dog rescued from Septic tank.” One of the leading causes of injury on or around septic tanks is the failure to maintain risers and lids in good condition. Superior Septic Services has the products you need to keep a lid on your septic tank. Check out our septic riser lids, as well as screws and other products needed to keep those septic tank lids doing their job.

We stock standard riser lids in eco-friendly green that blends into surroundings. At the same time, they are unmistakable and are therefore easy to find – something that can be important if your septic tank needs extensive maintenance. We have four sizes: 12, 18, 24, and 30 inches in diameter. Septic lids only ship to Snohomish County.

We also have the screws that you will need to fasten those lids down firmly. They come in two sizes: 3 ½ x 14 inches, and 2 ½ x 14 inches, in sets of four. They are hex slot screws made of stainless steel, and are just the thing to keep those lids firmly battened down to prevent pets, toddlers and even wandering grandmothers from falling into your septic tank. Sadly, they are not impervious to criminal intent – another set of sad events brought to us by news headlines – so don’t neglect your periodic inspections and regular septic tank pumping. Both are useful for revealing problems in your septic tank, including broken baffles or risers that are showing wear.

As always, Superior Septic Services is devoted to helping our neighbors keep their home septic systems in good shape, and that includes providing quality septic riser lids. You can order our products online or call us at (425) 905-2485.

It contains biotic boosters for the bacteria that normally lives in your septic tank.

Biotabs to Boost Septic Tank Bacteria

You can contact Superior Septic Services, in addition to our other septic services including installation and inspections, for home septic system products for sale. Mechanical things have a way of breaking down at any season, and being able to find replacement parts at a reasonable cost is always welcome. Your septic tank is not only a mechanical device, it is home to millions of microscopic creatures called bacteria. Biotab, one of our septic system products for sale, can boost septic tank bacteria.

Bacterial action in your septic tank tends to slow down in the winter. You can help keep it going by running some warm water into it each day. Your daily shower or a load of laundry will do. Avoid using harsh chemicals or bleach, however, as that can harm the bacterial colonies in your septic system and prevent them from doing their job – which is to break down the waste from your home. If you suspect that your bacterial colonies need a boost, one way to give them some help is to flush a bio-tab down the toilet. The time release tablets will slowly dissolve in your septic tank, releasing more bacteria to help digest the solids from your bathroom and kitchen. The tablets are not harmful to humans and animals – although we still wouldn’t recommend swallowing them!

Superior Septic Services is always looking for new ways to help the people in our community. Offering cost effective products for your septic system is just one more way that we try to help. You can call us at (425)905-2485 to learn more about Biotabs, or you can order them from our online store page. In addition to the many septic system products for sale that we have in stock, we also offer products to inhibit tree roots, riser lids, riser lid screws and many other products that can help keep your septic system in good working order.

Septic Products for Sale

As the seasons change, something often overlooked is septic system maintenance. This is the time when the conscientious homeowner is doing those last-minute repairs and taking the winterization steps that will keep his or her house running smoothly during the cold months. Superior Septic Services is not only available for assistance, but we also offer septic products for sale – including those that can be managed by dedicated do-it-yourself homeowners.

Getting your septic tank ready for the cold months might be part of your preparation. Cracked lids or leaks can cause heat loss in your septic tank, which – in turn – can cause the bacteria to slow down their processing of waste, or for the whole tank to freeze! We have lids, risers, and riser screws for sale, making replacement of these vital parts easy. We also have filters – something you might want to replace before winter sets in. Nothing like a clogged filter to back things up, and cause problems. We also have appropriate, septic tank-friendly chemicals for your use, including Blitaroot, an effective way to stop trees from poking their roots into your sewer drains.

Call Superior Septic Services at (425)905-2485 to learn more about our septic products for sale, or browse our online catalog. We strongly believe in providing good products for home repair persons. One of the best ways to ensure a job well done is to have good parts available for use. Patching materials together from repurposed parts sometimes work, but sometimes it turns out to cause problems. As always, we are happy to help.

Superior Septic Services Recommends Biotabs

Biotab for septic tank system maintenance

Superior Septic Services recommends Biotab for septic tank system maintenance to help maintain the efficiency of your septic tank. Now, we have mentioned in our blogs that most septic tanks don’t need additives to work correctly, and we will stand by that. But Biotabs are different.

Biotabs can be easily flushed down the toilet. They are the no muss, no fuss way to improve the efficiency of a sluggish septic tank. Septic tanks work by separating out the solids from the liquids, and then breaking down the solids so they take up less room. Biotabs, unlike many additives, are concentrated, time-release tablets of anaerobic and aerobic bacteria. When flushed, the tabs fall to the bottom of your septic tank where they release these powerful little microscopic creatures who help your septic tank operate efficiently. This helps prolong the times between pumping, but even the most efficient septic tank will eventually fill up and need to be pumped. But putting off the day, and making those trips longer between times saves you money and cuts down on the inconvenience. As always, we are glad to help you save a little and to make your life a little bit easier.

Superior Septic Services recommends Biotabs for septic system for sale in our online store, just call (425)905-2485 or browse our online catalog. This is just one more way in which we can help our customers and others maintain their septic tank in good condition. Good maintenance of your home septic system is good not only for you, but for everyone else. When your septic tank is operating efficiently, it is more environmentally friendly than should it have a failure or a problem. Introducing added bacteria to help breakdown the contents of the tank helps with that efficiency.

Riser Lid Screws for Sale

riser lid screws for sale

Superior Septic Services has riser lid screws for sale. You might ask “What’s so special about riser lid screws?” Well, as you might guess from the name, riser lid screws keep the lids on your risers. That’s an important job for these little screws, and for your septic system.

Risers are the tower-like structures that reach up from your septic tank to a level where an inspector or repair person can check on how well your septic tank is doing its job. The lids on the risers help keep people, pets, and other things from getting into your septic tank. The screws hold those lids down nice and tight when they are not in official use, keeping curious youngsters of all species from making an unfortunate exploration of your septic tank. The word “septic” comes from a Greek word that means putrefaction – and that is what happens during the composting process that goes on inside your septic tank. It doesn’t take much thought to realize that no one wants a curious two-year-old thinking that the risers might make a good place to play hide-and-seek. Riser screws are magnificently important when you think about how vital it is to keep that riser lid fastened down securely.

You can order your riser screws and many other materials for your septic tank for our materials website. We take both pride and pleasure from being able to supply home customers and even small businesses with these vital supplies. Riser screws are small, but they are mighty – and they are only one of the many items we offer. We are glad to provide this service to you and hope that it will help keep your home sanitation system working properly for many years to come.

Purchase Replacement Septic Tank Riser Lids for Your Septic System

septic tank riser lids for sale

Septic tank riser lids that are in good repair are an essential part of your home septic system. Superior Septic Services stocks septic tank riser lids for sale as replacement parts for your septic tank.

All septic tanks should be equipped with risers. These are access wells that are situated over the inlet port, and possibly over the exit port to allow easy access for inspection, pumping and repair. These risers are twenty-four inches across – wide enough for a child, pet or even some adults to plunge through them if the lid is not in good shape. Since a working septic tank is a swamp of gases and bio-hazard materials, the plunge would be unpleasant at best and possibly even fatal at worst. This is the primary reason for maintaining septic tank riser lids in excellent condition. The other reason is that good lids, appropriately maintained, allow easy access to check the internal operations of the septic tank. It makes it easy to pop off the lid – and to replace it – for inspection, for pumping, for checking baffles or for changing out filters. These are all important activities for maintaining your home septic system in excellent condition.

You can order your new septic tank riser lids from Superior Septic Services by visiting our website and using our online catalogue, or by calling (425)905-2485 to order over the phone. Septic tanks are our business, so we stock quality materials to help you to maintain your home sanitation system in the best possible condition. Since we work with septic tanks on a daily basis, we fully understand that business of everyone living upstream or downstream from someone else. We are dedicated to the idea that it is possible to maintain a home sanitation system without adversely impacting anyone else.

Zabel A-1800 slide-in outlet filter cartridge for sale

Zabel A-1800 slide-in outlet filter cartridge for sale

Superior Septic Services offers the Zabel A-1800 slide-in outlet filter cartridge for sale. If you don’t own a septic tank that uses one of these, you might wonder exactly what that thing might be. We can answer that question – and any other question you might have about this product.

The Zabel A-1800 slide-in outlet filter cartridge slides into a 4-inch sanitary tee baffle to filter effluent after it leaves your septic tank and before it enters the drain field. It captures any solids that have managed to slip past the baffles in the septic tank and flow out of it. The filter helps prolong the life of your leaching drain field and creates an added layer of protection for the folks who live downstream. It can also help increase your awareness of conditions inside your septic tank because the Zabel A-1800 filter requires periodic cleaning. The approved method is to remove the filter (don’t use your septic system while the filter is out), then hose it off is a way that any solids with wind up back in the septic tank. Replace the filter, and your system is ready to go again. The increased awareness part is a side effect: if you begin to notice an uptick in the solids the filter is catching, you might need to engage the services of a professional to learn why this is happening.

Superior Septic Services offers the Zabel A-1800 slide-in outlet filter cartridge for sale through our online catalog. You can use our online ordering tool or give us a call at (425) 905-2485 to learn more about this filter and other products that we have available for your home sanitation system.

Blitaroot Lenzyme Root Control Septic Product for Sale

Blitaroot Lenzyme Root Control septic product for sale

Superior Septic Services offers reliable products for your home septic system. This week, as we are currently entering spring and early summer, we are highlighting Blitaroot Lenzyme Root Control.

Tree roots are a problem in both groundwater drains and sewage lines. Trees quite naturally send their roots searching after moisture and nutrients. In sewer lines, especially, they can find both. Blitaroot offers a limiting solution that requires no digging, no tools, and yet will not harm your trees. A 1.6-pound application should be enough for a full year – depending upon the length of the line. That amount will treat up to 100 feet of a four-inch pipe. If you already have a problem with roots in your sewer or drain lines, they might need to be cleared mechanically before applying the Blitaroot. However, without some sort of preventative application, the roots will grow back quickly and even more vigorously. Blitaroot does not contain any copper and is contained in a latex base. It foams its way along the length of your pipe, coating the interior and inhibiting root growth inside the drains. In one sense of the word, you could say that it makes the line taste bad to the trees, so they sent their roots somewhere else.

Superior Septic Services offers reliable products for your home septic system, including Blitaroot Lenzyme Root Control. Our products are available online, where you can order them using the ordering tools offered in our catalog. We also offer lids, screws, bio-tab and Trap-cleer – just to name a few of the products that can help keep your home septic system quietly doing its job. It is our pleasure to be able to offer this service to home and business owners who maintain home septic systems.
