Owning and maintaining a commercial septic system is a little bit different than a residential system. However, the basics are the same. Read on for more about the unique needs of a commercial septic system.
Why do I need a Commercial Septic System?
If you own a business that is required by law to have public restrooms and do not have access to a city sewer system, you’ll need a septic system.
How Often do Commercial Septic Systems Need Maintenance?
Commercial septic systems are monitored more closely than residential systems. They handle quite a bit more sewage than traditional systems, so it is imperative to keep them professionally maintained. A neglected commercial septic tank can be extremely hazardous to the surrounding environment. And, not to mention, septic disasters due to neglect can be a threat to your business.
Do you need a Professional Septic Company on hand for a commercial septic system?
Yes! Commercial septic systems require specialized cleaners and equipment that only professional septic companies have. Buildups can happen quickly with commercial systems, so your tank will have to be pumped frequently. A professional septic company will put you on a regular cleaning and pumping schedule, so you will not have to worry about a maintenance timeline.
What can I do to make sure my commercial septic system runs smoothly?
Besides keeping up on a regular cleaning and pumping schedule with a professional septic company, there are some things you can do to make sure your system keeps running smoothly. Make sure your employees and customers know not to flush anything other than waste and toilet paper. Friendly reminder signs in the restrooms are a good idea, along with small garbage cans in the bathroom stalls. Have the number for Septic System Emergency Service posted somewhere your staff can see it. Be sure to have a septic emergency response plan as part of your employee training program.
