3 Septic Tank Maintenance Tips to Keep Your Tank in Great Condition

Preventative Maintenance for Your Septic Tank

Septic tanks require preventative maintenance like any other complex network to ensure optimum performance year-round. August is an excellent time of year to deal with any maintenance tasks. Some tasks should be done more frequently than others. Sticking to a preventative maintenance routine keeps your system healthy and strong, and helps prevent expensive repairs or replacements. Here are some septic tank maintenance tips to keep your tank in great condition:

Septic Tank Inspection

If you haven’t had a professional look at your septic system for some time, or you think there might be an issue, consider calling for an inspection. Inspections can highlight glitches in the system before they become a bigger problem. During an inspection, we investigate various areas of the system looking for any signs of leakage, backups, damage to the tank or pipes, drain field failure, and more.

Septic Tank Pumping

We recommend having your septic tank pumped every 2-3 years to keep it working efficiently. In August, the ground is normally dry, and that enables us to back up closer to tanks that may be in the back part of your property that would typically require a lot of hosen laid if we had to get to it during a wet time of year. This time of year we can back in somewhere without making ruts in the yard.

Ask Questions About Your Septic Tank

It may sound basic, but if you want to keep your septic tank in top shape, you need to understand how it works and the best way to care for it. We are here to help educate you on your septic system, so you understand what’s happening when you flush!
