Challenging or environmentally sensitive locations rely on the Multi Flo for their septic system, the installer’s choice for environmentally sensitive applications. Certified under ANSI/NSF Standard 40 protocol as a class 1 system, Read Septic is an Authorized Multi-Flo Dealer in Kane County.

Septic Tank Pumping 

This is a primary maintenance task that homeowners should have done on a regular basis in order to keep their septic system running in tip top shape. Many homeowners and businesses in Kane County rely on Read Septic to perform septic tank pumping on a regular basis. With the deep, dark, poorly draining Drummer soil common in our area, every three years is the maximum time between pumping septic tanks. Waiting longer to pump your septic tank can cause it to malfunction.

 Septic System Repairs

The experienced staff at Read Septic are trained to be able to determine which type of Septic System is installed, how they function and how to repair them when they malfunction. Read Septic repairs all types of septic systems, including:

  • Conventional system
  • Gravity System
  • Aerobic Treatment Unit System
  • Mound Septic System
