For close to 30 years Vortech has offered septic services. Whether you’re looking for a septic inspection, system repairs, monitoring or installation services, we have you covered.

Vortech installs dozens of sewer main installations annually for both new construction as well as change overs from septic system to municipal connections.

Below are a series of pictures illustrating the decommissioning of a septic system and new sewer main installation to the city connection. City sewer became available in the area so our clients decided to abandon the old septic system and connect to the city service.

The installation starts with the decommissioning of the septic tank. As per VIHA requirements there is a specific process to follow. Upon decommissioning an exterior clean out will be installed for future access/service of the new main outside of the home/building. Choosing the best route possible becomes the next step as with all plumbing systems, the fewer the fittings the better to mitigate suspended solids in the system and assure adequate transfer of effluent to the city connection. We use our laser level to ensure adequate grades are met and maintained.

The following is a series of pictures demonstrating the process from the septic tank commission to the final street connection.

What our customers say:

  • "I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Charles and the crew at Vortech. I have used their services on two separate occasions and both times I was impressed with their professionalism and excellent customer service. This is a professional, trustworthy, and reliable company that I highly recommend to everyone. They give upfront and honest quotes. They come prepared and their work is fast, efficient, and dependable. Based on prior experience, this is not a given in this industry. So before you go with the big name alternative, consider giving Vortech a call instead. I will never call anyone else."
