5 Benefits of Frequent Septic Maintenance
Septic maintenance isn’t something most homeowners want to think about on a regular basis. That’s why Bob’s Septic makes it easy with our septic maintenance contracts!
Here are five ways that septic maintenance can help you be a homeowner hero!
1. CHANGE HABITS BEFORE THEY BECOME PROBLEMS
Have you ever flushed the wrong product down the toilet and not thought about the consequences? Sure, it may take some time for damage to show, but even after your tank has been repaired, this bad habit can persist.
Using your garbage disposal too much can fill up your septic tank with extra solids and create problems over time. Having your tank regularly cleaned out by a professional septic service can help identify your bad habits.
2. HANDLE ISSUES EARLY-ON
Overfilled tanks can easily be avoided by having regular maintenance and tank pumping performed. This can catch some of the more expensive problems early-on, like clogged pipes leading into your drain field.
3. KEEP YOUR COSTS LOW
Many homeowners put off septic maintenance because of the myth that it costs too much. In actuality, regular maintenance will cost you substantially less than a full-blown repair. Overfilled and malfunctioning septic systems are an expensive fix, but can be avoided with regular pumps.
4. YOUR YARD IS FREE OF BACKUP
If your septic tank becomes too full, it can pose a health hazard for your home. An overfilled septic tank will begin to bleed out in your yard. Direct sewage exposure can lead to some serious diseases like Hepatitis A and Leptospirosis. Regular maintenance gets this harmful waste out of your system and keeps your family safe.
5. PREVENT SLOW DRAINS
Many people believe that slow drains happen because of hair and debris clogs. While these types of clogs can be the root of draining problems, what most people don’t know is that a full septic tank can be the culprit.
Having your septic system pumped will keep your drains flowing smoothly and prevent standing water in your sinks and showers.
