Pumping Maintenance


“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”

septicsystem_maintenanceThat quote has never been more true than it is about septic tank care. If you have not pumpted out your septic tank in the last three years, you may be waiting for a disaster to happen.

The proper care and maintenance of your septic tank can save you thousands of dollars in repair and replacement costs. Even a good system must be pumped out periodically. The frequency depends on the size of the septic system and the use it gets.

Most systems should be pumped out every one to three years. Older system and larger families (heavier usage) should be pumped more often. This can increase the longevity of yours system, stop the pollution of your land and prevent the contamination of your water.

When was the last time you had your septic tank serviced? Don’t neglect it any longer!

We recommend that you do not use any harsh chemicals in your sytem such as: Sulfuric acid, lye, Liquid Plumber, Draino and caustic sodas. Do not dispose of cooking grease or paints into your drains. Also, we recommend that you do not flush paper towels, napkins, sanitary products, cigaretts, baby wipes or kitty litter into your septic system.

When using laundry detergents, biodegradable and liquid detergents are better for your system. In toilet paper, white single-ply is suggested for best care of your septic system.
