Proper septic maintenance largely depends on the following :
- Total Number of people living in your household (permanent and vacation homes will differ in the amount of time between recommended routine maintenance)
- Amount of wastewater generated (permanent and vacation homes will differ in the amount of time between recommended routine maintenance)
- Volume of solids present in the wastewater (i.e. use of a garbage disposal will increase the frequency of recommended routine maintenance)
Additional Ways to Protect Your Investment
- Pump Your Septic Tank Regularly
- If the buildup of solids in the tank becomes too high and solids move to the drainfield, this could clog and strain the system to the point where a new drainfield will be needed.
- Routine pumping costs over the extended lifetime of your system are far less than replacement costs.
- Yearly pumping is suggested or when the total depth of sludge and scum exceeds one-third of the liquid depth of the tank.
- Routinely servicing your septic system is the most important factor in maintaining and ensuring your septic system is properly protected.
- With proper maintenance, you can decrease the risk of a damaged drainage field due to solids flowing in to the drainage field.
- Simple routine maintenance can minimize the potential need for a new drainage field and protect your investment.
