Septic Tank Services
Septic system service, installation, cleaning, & maintenance
No one wants to deal with a backed-up septic system. In other words, it’s a homeowner’s nightmare and why you should consider routine maintenance of your septic system.
Meanwhile, there are many different reasons your septic system could fail. For example, your drainage line could be:
- Clogged line: This is the cheapest and easiest to fix.
- Full septic tank: Indicates it needs to be pumped.
- Septic field failure: Can mean serious trenching and thousands of dollars.
- Small problems: This could be issues with septic baffles, risers or the septic tank itself.
Mullin Plumbing, HVAC, Septic & Electric can take care of all of this and more!
Septic System Repair
We provide professional septic repair services for Broken Arrow, OK and the surrounding areas. When you call our Broken Arrow, OK septic repair team, we will schedule as quickly as we can, and in most cases we can usually schedule same day service. Many septic system repairs are large jobs and may take days to finish correctly. As a result, prices can range dramatically from one job to the next. But, no matter the situation, it is still almost always going to be cheaper to fix an existing system than to replace it. However, if a replacement is needed because of excessive problems with the tank or drain field, Mullin Plumbing, HVAC, Septic & Electric can do that too.
Septic System Installation
Installing a septic system usually takes two to three days and may include the extraction of the old systems and the installation of a new, more efficient septic system. Many updated septic systems offer an anaerobic bacteria system which can aid in breaking down waste quicker so your tank doesn’t fill up as fast. These tanks don’t have to be cleaned as often and need less maintenance. However, bacteria has to be replenished occasionally to keep the system working correctly. Some systems also have alarms that will alert you when the tank is full.
With Mullin’s Septic System Services You Can Expect:
There are a few steps to having a septic system installed, but don’t worry Mullin Septic has the staff and the experience to get the job done right. The installation takes one to two days with only a few hours gap in drain usage. Mullin Septic backfills the work site to rough grade with the option of a landscape upgrade. Every system installed by Mullin is permitted by the Department of Environmental Quality and inspected by a state certified inspector. Be sure to call (918) 209-3133 today to get the details.
Septic Service Cleaning
After a septic system is installed it should be cleaned out at least every two years. This will promote long life and proper functioning for the septic system. Once the septic system is cleaned out, you will notice a layer of sludge, about 12″, at the bottom. This sludge is left behind as a “starter” layer of bacteria that will break down new wastewater entering the septic system. Check out the Products page to see enzymes that will keep your septic system working properly in between cleanings.
Generally a septic system is made up of a tight line, a tank, and an absorption field. The absorption field is made up of lateral lines that can collect sludge over time. Mullin Septic uses a machine called a jetter. A jetter uses a special nozzle and high-pressure water to pull sludge out of the lateral lines. This septic tank service is designed to rejuvenate clogged lateral lines but should not be performed on systems that have reached or passed their life expectancy or systems with collapsed lateral lines. Call our office to find out if jetting is right for your system.

Donna Williams⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Google Review
Had a very good experience with mullin plumbing. Dealing with a huge water leak with tons of company at my house was a bit stressful but Israel got right on the problem. He knew what to look for and found our problem in no time, he explained everything where it was easy to understand and had a calming presence over it all. He was very stilled and fixed what he could and called someone else to clean out our septic tank . They came within a few hours of calling and got it done same day. We have used them in the past and being a business owner myself know the value of customer service. Definitely call them again for any plumbing needs. Jason and Rachel

Alternate Septic Systems
Meanwhile, not every home or facility is located on land that has a good percolation rate. Some systems are designed to aid in evaporation and absorption of treated wastewater such as the ETA and chamber systems. An ETA system uses a similar layout to the traditional septic system but is designed to speed the rate of absorption and evaporation using gravel (or other media), sand, and a permeable cloth separator in place of the native soil. However, the chamber system uses a slotted pipe which sets in a two-foot trench. Chamber systems do not use any media, such as gravel, but leaves a dirt floor for additional absorption area. As a result, his type of system can be used in different applications. Mullin Septic can help you decide which system will best suit your application. Call today for septic tank services!
Aerobic Septic System Services In Broken Arrow, OK
SEPTIC TANK INSTALLATION
An aerobic system may also be referred to as an on-site wastewater treatment system. By either name, the system can sound foreign but it simply uses bacteria, oxygen, and chlorine to speed the natural break down process turning wastewater into a sanitary non-potable effluent. If your property’s soil does not meet requirements for a traditional septic system, an aerobic system may be the right alternative for you. Mullin Septic installs aerobic systems in one to two days.
The homes drainage will be unusable for a few hours while the existing system is being exchanged with the new system, but this time is kept to a minimum. Mullin Septic secures the permit required by the DEQ and an inspection that is performed by a state certified inspector. The worksite will be brought back to rough grade but you can call (918) 209-3133 to find out about our landscaping. Our experienced staff is always eager to serve you.
SEPTIC TANK MAINTENANCE
The Oklahoma DEQ requires a maintenance agreement on all new aerobic systems and wastewater testing on all systems regardless of the installation date. Mullin Septic offers a maintenance program that not only meets the DEQ’s requirements but relieves the worry of time-sensitive system checks. Furthermore we will provide chlorine for the system, clean the filters, and perform a detailed examination of the system. Call our office for an in-depth description of our aerobic services and maintenance plans.
SEPTIC TANK CLEANING SERVICES
Once an aerobic system is installed, the pre-treat tank should be cleaned at least once every two years. Cleaning this tank is a good way to ensure a long system life and also to check for any potential problems with the system. Older systems that have been neglected may need all three tanks in the system cleaned to remove any solid overflow into the aerobic treatment unit, or the pump tank. Call Mullin Septic to schedule your aerobic service today.
If your aerobic system is not under maintenance with a certified installer be sure to maintain chlorine in the system. Calcium Hypochlorite is the type of chlorine approved by the EPA and designed to work best in an aerobic system. The chlorine kills 99 percent of bacteria within 10 minutes of contact and dissolves quickly. DO NOT put swimming pool chlorine into your system as it is not designed for this application and can cause harm to your system and to the environment.
Aerobic System Awareness
Do you find yourself unfamiliar with aerobic system warning lights? We hope this allows you a better understanding of your aerobic systems’ needs!
The good news is, there is no concern unless you are backing up into the house. If you notice signs of a backup (such as gurgling or slow drains), give us a call and we will send a technician out the same day!
High water alarm. This is a signal that your tank is at 50% capacity. This light is common when it is raining or has rained. We recommend allowing 24 hours to pass before sending a technician out to assess.
Aeration alarm. This is a signal that your system is not receiving enough fresh air. You may notice your system smells more than normal. This is not a concern and can be taken care of within 3-5 days.
The alarm will sound with either the red light or the orange light. The alarm may be muted at the control panel until a highly experienced technician can examine the system. You can mute the alarm by going to the control panel or aerator pump and either clicking the silence button or pushing the alarm switch. The light will remain on until the issue is resolved.

Lagoon Wastewater Treatment System
Some homes or facilities are located on land that does not perc. Alternate systems, such as chambers, ETA, aerobic systems, or lagoons, are needed. A lagoon is a type of lagoon wastewater treatment system that uses a holding tank (like a septic tank) to catch and break down solids and the lagoon itself. The holding tank will need to be cleaned out periodically to prevent solid waste from flowing into the lagoon.
A lagoon resembles a pond but has a raised rim called the berm that diverts water away from the lagoon. Nothing should grow on the berms that will cast a shadow over the lagoon because this will decrease the rate of evaporation. Lagoons vary in size depending on the estimated monthly flow of wastewater from the house or facility. The lagoon should be kept at a level that is acceptable to the EPA and the DEQ so pumping will be necessary from time to time. At Mullin Septic, we are ready and have a knowledgeable pumping crew. Our company boasts some of the biggest hauling trucks around, so no matter if you need 1,000 gallons or 100,000 gallons pumped, Mullin Septic is the company to call. (918) 209-3133.
We can help you bring your lagoon to DEQ Compliance! Call today to learn more about lagoon wastewater treatment systems.
