Zeiter’s Septics specializes in septic tank cleaning (, since septic tanks & aerobic units are the primary sewage treatment before it gets to the absorption field.  Zeiters, which has been in service for over 35 years and family run and operated, services the following local counties in Illinois: Will, Bureau, Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, Grundy, Kane, Kendall, Kankakee, LaSalle, Livingston and Putnam.

On average, septic tank pumping should occur every 2-3 years.

The reason for this is for the layers that have accumulated. Basically, all solids and liquids are separated in the tank with the heavier solids falling to the bottom of the tank, known as the sludge layer and lighter solids rising to the surface, the scum layer. The layer in between is known as the clear zone. As the clear zone becomes thinner through a thickening of either the scum or sludge layer, these solids clog the system and can reach a point where there is a backup of sewage in the home or even surfacing on the lawn.

In order to avoid these latter situations, regular septic tank pumping is a home necessity. Zeiter’s Septics offers septic tank pumping ( for commercial, industrial and residential places so that everyone can benefit from having a clean, fully operational septic tank.
