Septic System Maintenance is a vital part of ensuring successful performance of any on-site wastewater system, (aka septic system).
Steps to Maintaining Your Septic System Properly
Maintenance of your septic system, (the tank and its components), includes:
- Having your tank pumped out on a regular basis.
- Having it inspected by a licensed septic tank contractor.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that septic tanks be pumped out every 3 to 5 years, however your frequency may be greater than this depending on several factors. The most important factors include, but are not limited to:
- Household Water Usage
- Size of Septic Tank
- Age of System
- Usage of System
Because each of these factors is variable and unique to each household, periodic inspections are recommended to determine the condition of the tank and its components.
