Septic Tank Cost

You are responsible for maintaining your system. You may wish to hire a professional to make sure your system continues to function properly.

Having a service contract with an expert on the operation and maintenance of on-site wastewater treatment technologies is a sound and economical approach to properly maintaining and extending the life of your system. When a professional is making regular service visits, problems are usually detected before they can cause your system to malfunction.

Early detection makes it possible to take remedial action before a system becomes a health hazard to you or the public, harms the environment, or becomes a legal liability. Repair all problems quickly. (Common repairs are replacing the air compressor, pumps and spray heads and pumping the tank.) Failure to take care of problems when they occur can cause other parts of the system to fail.

A system with one malfunctioning part is a malfunctioning system. Some localities have regulations that require a certain amount of system management. Even if they are not required in your area, routine inspection and proper system maintenance will ensure that on-site wastewater treatment systems will continue to be a permanent and effective part of our wastewater treatment infrastructure.
