Many people are under the impression that septic system are "self-maintaining" and don't need regular maintenance. This thinking leads to thousands of dollars in repairs down the road.
There are two major items that need to be monitored inside a septic tank. First is "sludge" which is the accumulation of solids at the bottom of the tank. The second is "scum" which is oil, grease and other floating material which accumulates on top of the tank.
If the sludge layer becomes to thick we risk this material potentially reaching the field contributing to an early failure of the drain field. Likewise if the scum level becomes too thick, there is a risk that the oil and grease layer could begin to flow out to the field as well and these are particularly damaging.
Having your septic tank pumped on a regular basis will keep your sludge and scum levels in check. The frequency will depend on the number of occupants in the home, the size of tank and type of system on site. Once on site, we can determine how often you should be pumping the tank as well as other maintenace items.
