Nobody wants to think about their septic system, when the last time they had the tank pumped or inspected, but if we realize how much we depend on our septic system every day, we may take better care of it.
You definitely don’t want to overlook your septic system unit it’s backing up or overflowing into your house, forcing you to pay attention! Read more on how to prevent this from happening.
It starts with what you’re putting down the drain. Non-organic materials disrupt the natural and delicate balance maintained by a host of microbes that make your septic system their home. Microbes aren’t able to break down inorganic materials such as, dental floss, paper towels, feminine hygiene products, and Q-tips as well as grease, household chemicals, and paint, which causes the tank to fill quicker than it should and cause the system to back up. Both of which can be very unpleasant, but also be very costly to fix.
Commercial Septic Products
There are many commercial products that claim unrealistic fixes and instant results, alleging the microbes in your septic system will work better and will prolong pumping. Unfortunately, these products often lead to more complications and potential backups. If you must treat your tank, consult a professional septic tank service for recommendations.
Save You Money
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.
