Septic systems were developed as a way to properly and ecologically treat and process wastewater from homes and businesses that do not have access to city sewage systems.
When adequately and pragmatically maintained, they have the ability to process wastewater for 23 to 30 years. However, systems left without proper treatment can back up or become damaged, and thus have the potential to leach wastewater into local water tables, including wells, and surrounding ecosystems which leads to lasting environmental damage and health complications.
What are some of our recommended best practices for keeping up with your septic system maintenance?
Have your septic serviced every 3 years
To keep your septic system in order, we recommend a septic cleaning service every 3 years. Proactive care of your septic will prevent major issues in the future. We also recommend that if you are not due for a service to schedule an inspection to make sure your septic system is functioning properly and not at risk of a backup.
Service your septic in the proper seasons
a. Fall is here and winter is on the way, it’s the best time of year to make sure your septic system is serviced and prepared for the freezing temperatures. Once the ground freezes, septic systems run the risk of damage and potential leaks, especially if they are on the verge of overflow. Once this happens, issues become increasingly difficult to access and repair.
