Keeping up with regular septic tank maintenance is the best way to prolong the lifespan of your system while reducing the risk of backups and other issues.
Having a septic system on your residential or commercial property requires some regular maintenance. You and others in your household have to be careful about what gets flushed down drains in the structure, and you may need to space out loads of laundry or running the dishwasher to avoid overloading the tank. When you rely on a septic tank, you might also use caution when parking vehicles outside or playing near where the tank is buried underground. While there are certainly maintenance tasks that fall on you as the property owner, there are others that should be handled by a skilled septic technician.
Keeping up with regular septic tank maintenance is the best way to prolong the lifespan of your system while reducing the risk of backups and other issues. The tank in your system stores the solid waste, which forms in layers. When the layers get too close to the top of the tank, the sludge can overload its container and start leaking out through the pipes. A sewage backup is a messy and unpleasant situation that’s difficult to resolve and extremely damaging. It’s best to take action well before the risk of a backup occurs, so you never have to deal with it.
