Pumping

Many septic tank owners believe that if they haven't had any problems, they don't need to have their
septic tanks pumped. Not true. If the solids are not removed, eventually they will damage the rest of the system.

This may seem like an old idea, but for members of the SOS PSA program, it's a new way of saving all year long that not only makes a big difference but it also really makes a whole lot of sense. Long before your home or business septic system actually breaks down, it silently and unavoidably loses efficiency requiring more energy and more money to handle your sewage.

A recent study indicates that septics cost much more to operate simply because the equipment isn't regularly maintained. Equipment not regularly maintained is also moving closer each day to break-downs and unnecessary repairs. It is sad but true that a majority of service calls can be prevented through proper preventative maintenance.
