Your sinks, bathtubs, and toilets all drain into your septic tank, it adds up to a lot of waste water. It builds up over time, causing the tank to fill up with waste. Where does all that waste water go when the septic tank is full?
Drains become slow
Pipes making strange sounds
Puddles on the lawn where they shouldn’t be
Waste water backing up into bathtub or shower
Compromised drain field
It is easy to forget or put off septic pumping and maintenance. Can you remember when your septic tank was pumped? A good option is to set up an alert on your smart phone when it is time. Similar to when your car alerts you it is time to get the oil changed.
Lack of septic maintenance is just asking for trouble and costly repairs. Nobody wants to shell out the money for maintenance, but just like your car, if you want it to last longer and run great, you need to get the oil changed.
All it takes is regular septic tank pumping and inspections to keep your system healthy and working efficiently. Simply forgetting about it and hoping for the best can result in costly repairs.
“To prevent buildup, sludge and floating scum you will need to do periodic pumping of the septic tank. You should do the pumping every 3-5 years. Systems with electrical float switches, pumps, or mechanical components need to be inspected more often,” according to Consumer Affairs.
