Aerobic Treatment Unit Pumping

G&L Septic has been performing Aerobic Treatment Unit (ATU) pumping since 1968.

G&L Septic offers Aerobic Treatment Unit (ATU) pumping and maintenance services to homeowners within Kane County, Far Western DuPage County, and Northern Kendall County in Elgin, IL. 

Aerobic Treatment Unit (ATU) pumping is a specialized service that involves removing the effluent (treated wastewater) from an aerobic treatment unit, which is a type of septic system that uses oxygen to break down and treat wastewater. ATUs are designed to provide more efficient and effective treatment than traditional septic systems, and they require specialized maintenance and pumping services.

ATU pumping typically involves the following steps:

  • Inspection: The technician will inspect the ATU to ensure that it is functioning properly and to identify any potential issues or concerns.

  • Pumping: The technician will use a specialized vacuum truck to pump out the effluent from the ATU. This effluent is then transported to a treatment facility for further processing.

  • Cleaning and Maintenance: Once the effluent has been removed, the technician will clean and inspect the ATU to ensure that it is functioning properly. This may involve removing any buildup or debris from the system, checking the pumps and valves, and performing other maintenance tasks as needed.

ATU pumping is typically required every 6-12 months, depending on the size and usage of the system. It’s important to work with a qualified and experienced septic system professional such as G&L Septic to ensure that your ATU is properly maintained and cared for. By taking care of your ATU, you can help to ensure that it is functioning properly and safely, and avoid costly repairs or replacements down the line.
