Regular Septic Pumping and Maintenance
Someone will second the idea that if we allow our septic tanks to be too full before getting our septic tank pumped that the drainage will become very sluggish. Let’s take a look a look at a scenario where we have a river that is full of silt. In this example, the water will be forced to be sluggish and have a reduced flowing power. The turbulence caused by the huge amounts silt will slow that movement of water down the river. In order to ensure that the channel rejuvenates again, it is very crucial to make sure that we remove silt to ensure a smooth flow of the river once again. We apply the same thing to septic tanks.
Regular septic pumping maintains smooth flow within a septic system. Don’t wait until your septic tank if full or is already blocked to start pumping it out. This is just like procrastination and it is very dangerous. Just like the water is a river channel, you need to pump your septic tanks for proper septic maintenance. Failure to take care of your tank will mean you won’t be able to flush your toilet.
To enjoy your septic tank without issues, you should have your system pumped every three to five years to ensure the smooth flow of the water and dissolved dirt is eliminated and the tank never becomes full. I am very sure that no one wants to shower in a bathroom where there is dirty water oozing out of the bathroom outlets or the inability to flush their toilets. That problem has happened if you have neglected your septic tank. Can you withstand the smell of stagnant water plus germs that have been barred from entering the septic tank due to blockage? Of course not. No one wants that problem. To avoid this problem, get on a schedule with your septic company. Don’t skip out on septic tank pumping or restaurant grease trap. You always need to take charge of your septic maintenance. That is very important.
Regular septic tanks create space for new in-drains
Space is what makes your septic tank remain healthy. The idea behind septic maintenance is basically pumping to create space for new in-drains. In order to ensure that whatever you release from your bathroom and kitchen and even toilet goes down the drain smoothly, you need to ensure that you do septic pumping regularly. In so doing, you will basically be helping your septic tank to receive more drains from your house. The problem occurs when we leave it until it is too full or forget the maintenance that was due. Failure to pump your tank when it is full means there will be no space for your tank to accommodate any more waste. Septic maintenance is therefore all about allowing space and creating space. Put a date on your phone or on your calendar, so you don’t have to suffer the consequences. You can check the EPA for a septic overview.
