Are piled up leaves a problem for your Septic System?!

Septic Question:
Fallen leaves are beautiful. The crunchy sounds they make create a warm and fuzzy feeling inside of all of us! However, they impact whether or not your yard can grow grass…. Sorry, I got off track!
Are tons of leaves hanging out on your septic drain field problematic?
Well, they stop your soil from being able to function the way it’s supposed to and could cause drainage issues. So, it’s best to make sure you don’t have a TON of leaves just hanging out in this area of your yard.
So, get raking. And, of course, if you notice anything smelly or concerning, give us a call!!!

Quick Tips for Septic Maintenance!!

Paper products you should avoid flushing:

  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Dental floss
  • Condoms
  • Paper towels
  • Diapers

Just because something says biodegradable does not mean it will degrade quickly enough to avoid a problem if it clogs up with other waste. This can result in costly repairs. 

Household chemicals you shouldn’t flush:

  • Fats, oil and grease
  • Coffee grounds
  • Solid food waste
  • Bleach or other cleaning chemicals

There is a natural, biological treatment that is taking place in your tank. Flushing any chemicals down your toilet interferes drastically with this process. The only way to keep your maintain a healthy septic tank is to have it pumped every 3-5 years. 

As always, give us a call if you need our service!

Septic Tank Maintenance!

How do you take the most effective preventative measures against your septic tank having problems?

There is no better way to prevent septic disasters than having your tank pumped every 3 years for the average size household. There are no chemicals that will compare to having your septic tank pumped. It is a tank, it will get full. It will come out somehow, and you do not want it backing up into your washer & dryer along with other places because you haven’t had it emptied in way too long. The damage of not taking care of your septic tank can result in a much higher costing repair than if you just had the tank serviced regularly. Think oil changes for vehicles. If you don’t do standard maintenance on your vehicle… it eventually costs you a lot more money because of the damage. However, that can be avoided. For both, vehicles & septic tanks! 😉

What can happen without proper septic system maintenance!

This is why we can’t stress enough how important it is to get your septic tank system pumped and inspected no less than every five years. This tank is from 1991, and lack of proper maintenance has led to a rotted baffle tee outlet which allowed solids to drain into field lines, etc. The only way to repair this disaster is replacing the entire septic system! With regular five year pumpings, this issue would have been identified and fixed long before it turned into the problem it did! 

Don’t “replace an entire engine because you never changed the oil” goes a long way in the septic tank world!

Give us a call if you’re needing our services! 😊

Spring Septic Tips!

“Spring” Septic Tip: Any change in season or temperature is a good time to have your septic tank serviced or at least inspected. Even after mild winters, it is likely that there will be more overflow just from the level of moisture the soil holds from the increased precipitation over those months and the lack of absorption. Additionally, Spring brings a lot of showers!
Getting an inspection and your tank pumped out is the best way to avoid major issues that will lead to major repairs and major bills. This is standard maintenance and can be compared to the changing of tires, oil, and brake pads in a vehicle! You invest to keep your automobile healthy, prevent major issues, and increase the length of time you will have it. It’s the same for septic tank maintenance. Give us a call if you are needing your septic tank pumped or if you are in need of an inspection! 615-504-7178!
