Join us at the Florida Gulf Coast University for this educational seminar to help realtors, developers and engineers learn more about new technologies available for onsite wastewater treatment.

While septic tank maintenance is much more top of mind for diligent homeowners than those with city sewer, it’s important to understand that everyone, even those with public utilities, should carefully watch what is flushed down their toilet.

In order to better understand how your well functions, it’s important to understand the key components of a well. In this blog we’ll be exploring the key components of a well and how they function to provide water to your home.

According to wellowner.org, groundwater is responsible for as much as 50% of the water flow for natural bodies of water throughout the United States. That’s why it’s so important to conserve both our natural waterways and groundwater resources. September 11t is Protect Your Groundwater Day and we want to provide you with some useful tips to help you conserve groundwater and raise awareness for this important cause in September.

A septic contractor will be able to give you an honest and thorough assessment of your septic system and help you best understand what condition it is in. The septic professional will typically have a list of steps that he follows to ensure that your system is thoroughly inspected.

Silver Springs is a perfect sample of the misuse and mismanagement of wastewater and overexertion of natural springs.


We keep a close eye on the septic system news across the nation and have noticed septic pump incentive programs popping up across the nation. Most recently, we’ve noticed that Missouri has launched a “Get Pumped” program to help incentivize residents to maintain their systems with a septic pumpout. The program allows homeowners to benefit from cost share with aims to improve water quality and pollution from poorly maintained tanks.

Florida has attempted to amend some of the issues polluting our waterways on a county level by passing House Bill 1263, which puts responsibility on the county to regulate pumpout requirements via special incentive programs. We have noticed mixed feelings in response to this legislation, despite the awareness it could raise.

Perhaps a “get pumped” incentive of our own would encourage Southwest Florida septic tank pumpouts? It could be a win-win for both homeowners with septic systems and county governments.

If you’re not sure you can wait for a local incentive program, sign up for our newsletter and get a $25.00 off coupon for your first septic pumpout from Crews Environmental.

While some continue to debate the pros and cons of septic vs. sewer, when it comes to cost comparison of city sewer vs. septic systems – septic always wins.

While some may believe that all septic systems process wastewater in the exact same way, the reality is that not all septic systems are created equal.

We recently noticed this Naples Daily News commentary that was published from one of the readers on June 23rd. The commentary addressed the newly imposed septic legislation (House Bill 1263) which allows counties the option to adopt septic inspection and pumpout requirements every 3-5 years.
