Septic Services for Guam Homeowners

Septic systems are used for homes in rural areas that do not have access to city sewer systems. Each home in these areas has its own septic system that collects plumbing waste, which then goes through a natural cleaning process while passing through the system. At Barrett Plumbing, we can help to ensure your entire septic system is functioning correctly, as a malfunctioning septic tank or leaching field could pose a health risk to you, your family, and neighbors. Our team has years of experience dealing with all types of septic problems. You can rely on us to ensure any repairs or services are completed correctly. Please contact us to schedule service.

How Does a Septic System Work?

A septic system uses a combination of nature and proven technology to collect and treat household wastewater. The system includes an underground septic tank and a leaching field that work together to treat plumbing waste. All wastewater is contained in the septic tank, where organic matter is naturally digested, and all floatable matter and solids are separated from the liquid wastewater. This wastewater then leaves the tank through a series of underground perforated pipes and runs into a leaching field. As the water leaches into the surrounding ground, it goes through a natural process that removes or neutralizes any harmful pollutants or disease-causing pathogens, returning clean water to the earth.

Septic Pump Truck

Though your septic tank does a good job of breaking down most waste material, some solids and floatable items, like oil and grease, can be difficult to fully digest, resulting in a buildup of sludge in the tank. While this is a common occurrence, it’s essential to ensure your tank does not become too full. Our team has a septic pump truck to pump out any excess waste before it causes problems with your system. However, if issues do occur, we can take care of those as well. We can provide the following services for your septic tank:


Our team can inspect your septic tank to ensure there isn't excess waste building up, and there is no damage that needs to be addressed. You'll feel better knowing your tank is in good condition.


If you notice any issues with your tank or we spot any concerns during an inspection, we can provide the necessary repairs to fix it.


Unfortunately, septic tanks can become damaged beyond repair. When this occurs, our team can remove your old tank and replace it with a new one.

Leaching Field Service

The leaching field of your septic system is just as important as the tank, cleaning the wastewater before it returns to the ground. Any issues with the leaching field could result in contaminated water leaking into your yard or surrounding areas, causing a health risk. Our team provides leaching field service to ensure your system is functioning correctly. We can complete repair, rejuvenation, or replacement of your leaching field. Give us a ring and let us know if you need our Team to investigate and ensure your leaching field is working as it should.
