Cleaning is an important part of septic tank maintenance. A dirty tank will accumulate solids, which will overflow and block your septic system. Regular cleaning helps to keep the system flowing properly as well as extending the life of your system.
How often depends on the size of your household as well as the capacity of your septic tank. It is recommended that the average family should have their tank cleaned every 2 to 3 years.
A good indication that your septic tank needs pumped is dirty water coming back up through your plumbing, or if your toilet won’t flush.
Locating your septic tank is important in the case of an emergency, when it is often more difficult and costly to find. It is necessary in case you ever decide to sell your property.
If you are purchasing a property with an existing septic system, it is definitely recommended that you have an inspection. It can save you a lot of time and money down the line if there are any existing problems that are found.
