We can help you maintain your septic system.
If you’re not on the city sewer system, a well-maintained septic system ensures your household’s wastewater is safely disposed of, avoiding contamination and environmental damage. This maintenance includes consistent septic pumping, performed by an experienced team like ours at A&B Septic Services, Inc. Continue reading to learn how septic pumping can keep your septic system running smoothly.
The first thing to understand is what a septic system does. A septic system is a way to treat wastewater on a property that isn’t linked to a city sewer system. It includes a septic tank where your home’s wastewater goes to be cleaned and stored. Solid waste falls to the bottom, while liquid waste runs into the drain field.
The drain field is a system of pipes with holes in them that are hidden in the ground. It lets the liquid waste from the septic tank pass naturally and soak into the ground, where microorganisms clean it up.
Septic pumping removes the solid trash and sludge that have built up in the tank. It’s an integral part of keeping your septic system working well and lasting a long time because as solid waste builds up, it lowers your tank’s capacity. Essentially, if the tank isn’t pumped out regularly, it can get full and cause backups, spills, and even system failure.
This process should be done by an experienced team like ours. We have the tools and training to assess your tank to determine what it needs and complete the pumping. We can also evaluate your tank’s condition to ensure good working order.
Knowing this, you might wonder how often you’ll need septic pumping. The answer varies depending on the size of the tank, how many people live in your home, and how much water you use. Our team is happy to help you determine a good schedule that will help ensure your tank gets pumped on the right timeline.
