Overview of Septic Tank Maintenance

Septic tank maintenance entails regularly pumping the septic tank, having a professional inspect and pump it out, conserving water, and spreading usage over time, managing solids within the system naturally.

It is important to avoid drainfield compaction as well as excess water introduced to the drainfield through systems such as drainage ditches or other means. It is also important to keep a healthy structural integrity in the drainfield. Other things that septic system owners need to avoid are hazardous materials and activities such as draining grease, oil, or other liquids into the septic tank which will solidify at cooler temperatures within the tank and clog up material moving through it. It’s also important not to introduce too much water to the septic system in order for it to work properly.

Avoid Excessive Loads to Reduce the Need for Septic Tank Maintenance

Another tip is that homeowners should avoid putting excessive loads on their septic tank, such as by having too many appliances running at once or allowing large amounts of laundry to pile up over a period of time. This could result in an overflow which may cause backups into your home. It’s important to be mindful of how much water you’re using and not putting too much down your drains because this can add up quickly, especially if there are multiple people in the family at home.

How Often Is Septic Tank Maintenance Necessary?

As most homeowners know or have heard about septic tanks, they do need maintenance done but usually only every five years unless something is starting to go wrong. If you have a septic tank and want to ensure it is well taken care of, plan on having a company such as Dooley Service Pro pump your septic tank every five years so that there are no issues down the line with the system not working properly or when you need to sell your home in the future.
