Happy New Year

After New Year Septic Maintenance

Happy New YearThe New Year is here and the holidays are over.  How did your septic system survive?  Holidays can put a strain on your septic system with extra guests and water usage.  Things may accidentally get flushed which shouldn’t, or food products are put down the sink such as fats and grease.  You may need to catch up on laundry or cleaning.  Now may be a good time to pump out your system if it’s been awhile since you last had it pumped.  Three to five years is a general rule of thumb but usage may dictate whether you pump more frequently.

The New Year is also a good time to think about a maintenance program.  Septic Preservation Services offers a great maintenance program.  They can answer all your questions and make sure your septic system is running properly for years to come.  Regular maintenance on your septic system can extend the life of the system and avoid costly repairs.

Call Septic Preservation Services at 877-378-4279 and find out how you can benefit from their maintenance program and their team of experts or visit www.septicpreservation.com for more information.

Don’t Leave Your Septic System to Chance

collage-preventive-maintenanceMany homeowners may feel that septic systems basically take care of themselves if left alone.   You may be one of the lucky few that breezes through home ownership with a problem free septic system but this is generally not the “norm”.

Septic Systems need basic maintenance to keep them working properly as well as good household habits.

For the septic tank, maintenance means the periodic removal of accumulated sludge and scum, cleaning the effluent screen and inspecting the system to see that the baffles are sound and in place.  Septic systems need to be pumped every 3-5 years depending on the use.

For systems that utilize pumps, the homeowner should be reminded that pumps are mechanical, so the pump tank and pump should be regularly inspected to ensure solids are not entering the tank. Make sure the pump, electrical connections and floats are in good working order.  Pump tank should be pumped out and cleaned every 5 years to keep solids out of mechanical pump. It will last longer.

Distribution Box should be checked and pumped out when the septic tank is pumped.  This distribution box gives a good indication of the health of the leach field.  Leach fields are also part of the septic system and should be monitored.  They can become overly saturated and fail also.

Household use can have a big impact on your system.  Garbage disposals are not a good fit with a septic system and are better off being removed or used sparingly.  Water usage is important.  Spacing out washings, and dishwasher loads, fixing leaky faucets, and timed showers can all help prevent saturation in your leach field.

Being careful what goes down your drains and toilet and into the septic system can also preserve the life of your system.  Keep wipes, feminine products, and thick toilet paper out of your toilets and fats, grease, harsh chemical cleaners and bleach out of your drains and your septic system will thank you.

Septic Preservation Services has a great maintenance program to keep your septic system running smoothly.  They are the experts and can answer all your questions on household use and extending the life of your system.  Give them a call at  877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
