There is an easy way to save money this year, take care of your septic system with routine maintenance and regular tank pumping.
Every day someone in Central Florida is spending thousands of dollars for replacing or repairing their septic system, not to mention the expensive of cleaning their home from the mess caused by the septic back-up. Trust me, they wish they had taken the time to invest in a septic system inspection!
Septic systems rarely make it to the top of the priority list, until they back up or create unpleasant odors inside or outside your home.
Septic tanks need to be pumped out every 3 to 5 years, depending on how many people are living in the home, the size of the tank, and how much water is going into the tank. The largest percentage of water going into the septic system is from toilets. Older tanks use 3 to 5 gallons every flush, new tanks only use 1.5 gallons. Regular pumping is a small investment that can save thousands of dollars in the long run.
Having a septic system is a big responsibility, the Environmental Protection Agency has strict laws concerning them. An inefficient system can cause dangerous consequences such as groundwater pollution and toxic gasses.
Septic system inspections look at the drain field, valves, water inlet and outlets, as well the overall condition of the tank. This catches small issues before they become expensive repairs or even replacement.
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.
