A clogged toilet is every homeowner’s ultimate nightmare. This can be attributed to a malfunctioning septic system, among many others. Unfortunately, the septic system is something that we tend to overlook. It could be because it’s something that we don’t see everyday or it could be because we are too confident to think that something could even go wrong. Just like any other appliance, equipment, or system you have at home, the septic system needs to be properly maintained for it to function efficiently.
What happens when the septic system does not receive proper maintenance?
Aside from constant clogging and slow draining toilets, you’ll probably experience more than a handful of septic tank issues. Over time, these problems could become terrible health hazards to you and your family. If you still haven’t addressed these, you may be in for a septic system replacement, which is definitely costly and will take up time and energy, too.
What’s septic tank pumping?
Basically, one of the ways to maintain your septic system is through septic tank pumping. Your septic tanks need to be ideally pumped at least every three to five years, depending on a lot of factors including the number of people in your household and the amount of waste water that gets out of your home every day. The septic system generally deals with human waste and waste water, which means that you have to be extra adamant when it comes to system effectivity and efficiency. Without septic pumping, substances inside may solidify and could stay intact for years. With their continued buildup, you’ll most likely experience clogging and backing up, and it’s not only dirty and disgusting, it’s very unhealthy, too.
