Like anything in your home, your septic system requires regular service to be well maintained. If you are new to owning a septic or unsure why you would need to call a professional, here are some reasons why you might need septic services.
- Pumping – Your septic tank will require pumping to keep it working properly. This septic service will probably only need to be performed every 3-5 years, but it will depend on how many people live in your household.
- Preventative Maintenance – Septic services are often performed to prevent back up, build up, and other issues. Preventative maintenance can stop leaks, damaged pipes, and other things from breaking.
- Inspection – Before purchasing a new home with a septic system or deciding to replace your current septic, it is recommended that you have your septic inspected. This routine service can save you money in the long run.
- Remove Problematic Items – It is common for septic systems to become clogged or damaged due to large problematic items. These items are often things that shouldn’t be flushed or go down the drain. Removing them can prevent damage or stop a clog from worsening.
There are many reasons why you may require septic services. It is important to keep an eye on your pipes, water flow in the house, and utility bill to know if it’s time to service your septic system.
