You’d be surprised how the accumulation of the smallest items can have a major impact on the function of your septic tank and accelerate the need for septic maintenance. Household chemicals, paper products and other seemingly harmless materials can clog your septic tank filter or stress biological treatment taking place within your tank.
With the possibility of pollutants escaping septic lines as a result of improper septic maintenance, we can’t express enough the need for regular septic tank pumpouts and septic tank inspections. Regular pumpouts mean more efficient wastewater treatment as well as prolonged life for your septic tank. A properly maintained septic system can last for as long as you live in your home.
