If you own a home with a septic tank (sometimes referred to as an “on-site wastewater treatment system”), then you’ll need to ensure that it is properly maintained. If you don’t keep up with the maintenance, then you’re more likely to run into malfunctions or total system failures.
An important part of the maintenance is process is regular septic pumping. Pumping your septic tank will remove waste before it causes any damage to the system. It’s important to pump out your septic tank at least every two to three years. Keeping up with regular septic pumpings will improve the lifespan of your system and reduce the chances of malfunctions.
Pumping out your septic tank on a regular basis will also drastically reduce your chances to replace the entire system. A system replacement is definitely a process any septic tank owner will want to avoid. It involves removing the entire system which is much more costly and extensive than regular maintenance.
When pumping out your septic tank, we don’t only focus on removing the waste, we’ll also check other parts of the system to ensure the tank is working properly. For instance, we’ll ensure that the tank is taking in the waste and removing the proper particles efficiently. Sometimes this is overlooked by other septic pumping companies.
In addition, another part of the system we will inspect is the leaching system. It’s an integral part of the septic tank. This part properly disperses the good particles from the tank back into the soil. It goes without saying that you want this part of the system to work properly. If this system clogs, you could experience some negative issues, such as:
- Water Collecting By The System
- Strong, Foul Odor Near The System
- Slowly Running Drains and Toilets in Your Home
- Sewage Appearing On The Ground Over The Septic System
- Sewage Backing Up Into Sinks, Bathtubs, or Toilets in Your Home
- The Grass Is Thick and Considerably Greener Over The Drain Field Area Than Other Areas
