If you are new to owning a property with a septic system, we encourage you to keep reading to learn some essential maintenance tips.
- Schedule Regular Septic Pumping Services – The most important thing you will need to do to keep your septic system in good condition is to get it pumped regularly. Septic pumping is the process of removing the accumulated waste from the tank to make room for more, and in general, you will need to schedule this service at least once every three years or so and possibly more often.
- Keep an Eye Out for Leaks – We also encourage you to perform regular visual inspections of the ground above and around your septic system. You should look for puddles or standing water, as well as for areas of grass that are especially lush and green, as all these phenomena indicate a leak in your tank.
- Record All Septic Maintenance – A third tip for effective septic maintenance we’ll offer here is to keep a detailed, accurate record of all septic issues and services. That way, you will never have to wonder when you last had your tank pumped and can simply refer to your records in order to determine when it’s time to schedule the next session.
