Everyone wants to save a little money, which is why they are turning to Orlando Septic Services to have their septic tank pumped, their system inspected and maintained.
If you can’t remember when the last time you had your septic tank pumped, it’s probably been too long. You may not see any obvious signs, but damage is still being done. Water flows out of the septic tank into the drain field and the solids remain, eventually becoming sludge on the bottom of the tank.
Over time the solids build up and if it’s not removed it backs up into the house or into the drain field. Both can result in costly repairs and even replacement. Routine maintenance and pumping end up saving you thousands of dollars.
“A key reason to maintain your septic system is to save money! Failing septic systems are expensive to repair or replace, and poor maintenance is often the culprit. Having your septic system inspected regularly is a bargain when you consider the cost of replacing the entire system. Your system will need pumping depending on how many people live in the house and the size of the system. An unusable septic system or one in disrepair will lower your property value and could pose a legal liability,” according to the EPA,

The first and most important step is to have your septic system regularly inspected and the tank pumped. An inspection can catch small issues before they become big, expensive problems. Regular septic tank pumping is necessary for a healthy system.
The second step is to be mindful of what goes down the drains and toilets. The fact is, 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!
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.
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.
The third step is to have a plan if something happens, slow drains, septic back up, or tank pumping. Waiting until the problem gets worse can end up costing a small fortune.
