Maintenance

Here's a little discussed but logical fact of life regarding septic systems:
All septic systems require maintenance to keep them working correctly and to ensure their long life.

No reasonable person would drive their car forever without changing the oil.  So, no reasonable person would use their septic forever without getting it pumped.  Solids build up in the septic or treatment tank, and those solids must be removed periodically.

Every system should be checked at least once per year to measure and confirm the solids levels, the integrity of the tank, baffles, pump, floats, and other components in the tanks. That would be the the minimum service frequency for a system using only a septic tank and a soil absorption field.

On the other end of the spectrum, aerobic treatment units should be checked much more frequently. The aerobic treatment unit is not able to produce quality effluent unless the aerator/compressor is operating correctly at all times.  For spray dispersal, that water sprayed is not disinfected unless chlorine is kept properly stocked in the chlorinator at all times.

Every different type of system requires a different amount of maintenance, dependent on the components included in your system and the way the system is used.  Call us to get the proper level of service for your system.
