The worst thing you can do for your Central Florida septic system is to have the “out of sight, out of mind” philosophy. Your septic system handles all the waste water in your home, sinks, toilets, showers, bathtubs, garbage disposal and laundry. It is the largest utility and cost more to replace than a refrigerator or air conditioner. 

The only way to ensure things are running smoothly with your septic system, is to schedule routine maintenance and pumping. If you can’t remember the last time you had your system inspected, filters cleaned or tank pumped, we encourage you to contact Orlando Septic Service. 

Routine Septic Maintenance Will Save Money

Regular septic maintenance helps prevent backups

Waste water backing up into your bathtub or sinks is not only messy, it can also be expensive. With regular maintenance this can all be avoided. Most of the septic system parts, filters, tank, drain field, and plumbing are all underground, just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean you should ignore it. 

Regular pumping will extend the life of your septic system

Pumping out your septic tank is an affordable procedure which is essential for extending the life of your system and keep the pipes, tank and drain in good working order.  Experts suggest you have your septic tank pumped out every 1 to 3 years. If you have more stress than the average home, it is essential you have the septic tank pumped out more often to increase the life of the system.

The small price of pumping the tank can avoid the thousands of dollars on repairs, many of which could have been prevented. If you’re experiencing issues with your septic system, waiting usually makes the problems worse. Regular maintenance and inspections can prevent failures and save you a ton of money in replacement and repairs.

Incorporating a few of these valuable tips can make a big impact!

The less you put down the septic tank the better. Don’t dispose of items the drain or toilet that can be discarded in another way, such as non-degradable items, paper towels, kitty litter, diapers, Kleenex, it can be like washing money down the drain!

Don’t plant trees or plants on the system, the roots can form a mat inside the drain line as well grow into the drain field and create a host of problems.

Avoid pouring hazardous materials or grease down the drain, such as paint thinner, motor oil, paint from cleaning paint brushes and pesticides. Grease can clog the drain field, drains and impede the soil from soaking up liquids.

The more water you use in your home the more stress is put on the septic system. Try not doing all the laundry in one day, take shorter showers and not running the dishwasher until it’s full.

Ensure your septic system has a long lasting healthy life with regular tank pumping and routine maintenance.
