When it is working and out of sight, it can be easy to forget about your septic tank. However, this is an important part of your property that deserves periodic attention to keep running at its best (and you certainly don’t want to deal with preventable major problems!). In general, it is a good idea to schedule routine septic tank pumping every three years. Since this can depend on the age, condition, and size of your tank, discuss an appropriate schedule with your local septic tank pumping company who can recommend a frequency that will serve your property best. Here are three reasons to schedule regular septic tank pumping:
- Maintain the Efficiency of Your Septic Tank – Septic tank pumping uses a pump truck which connects to your property’s plumbing and septic tank. Through the use of suction, a technician can clear out your septic system thoroughly which allows future waste to flow through more easily. Keeping your system running smoothly is key to avoiding major blockages or potential problems.
- Protect the Environment – Ensuring that your septic system is pumped every three to five years will prevent backups or leaks, which can lead to environmental pollution and contamination of the water table on your property. Protect your family and the environment with regular septic tank pumping.
- Avoid Costly Repairs – Scheduling consistent pumping is like having your car in for regular maintenance. This regular appointment for your septic system will help you avoid expensive and preventable repairs by keeping your system well maintained and noticing any potential problems early.
