Septic Pumping

Our experienced team members are here for your septic pumping needs and are ready travel to any location in the greater Snohomish County, Skagit County, and King County area.  Tri County Septic Services uses a truck mounted vacuum system to promptly pump and empty your property’s septic system.  A septic system requires the pump out service because of solids which accumulate and begin to fill up the septic tank.  The tank should be pumped when it reaches 30 – 50% capacity.
