The Importance Of Regular Septic Tank Maintenance

The Importance Of Regular Septic Tank Maintenance

More than 21 million households in America use a septic system on their property rather than a public sewer. Using a septic tank is a great way to manage your family’s waste. It could even end up saving you money in the long run. However, if you don’t take care of your septic system, it could come back to haunt you – in more ways than one. Read on to learn the importance of regular septic tank maintenance.

Regular Pumping

At the top of your list for regular septic tank maintenance is the task of regular professional pumping. Although your septic tank has a bacterial environment that breaks down the solid waste and allows it to pass through the system, your tank still needs to be emptied. If your tank becomes overfilled, you could get septic backups in your home. Septic backups are not only gross, inconvenient, and frustrating – they can also be dangerous and very expensive to clean up. Most septic tanks require pumping every 1-3 years. However, the exact frequency of pumping will depend on your household size and frequency of use. Ask your septic company for a recommendation based on your specific needs.

Regular Septic Inspections

It’s not safe to inspect your septic system yourself. Even if it were safe to do so, the naked eye cannot see many potential septic system issues. A professional septic inspection uses specialized equipment to thoroughly inspect your system for cracks, leaks, and other issues that could lead to big problems if ignored. A professional septic inspection could potentially save you time and money in the long run while making sure your system is up to the task.
