Signs You Have a Septic Emergency
While you may not consider it on a daily basis, your septic system is one of the most important operations in your entire home. Depending on the size of your tank and number of occupants in your household, your septic tank should be pumped every 3 to 5 years. This prevents disruptive septic problems down the road, including unexpected issues that require emergency service.
What to Do When Your Sewer Line is Broken
A corroding septic line can lead to leaks in your house or saturated soil (and odor) around your house. It’s not just problematic, it’s also a risk to your health. Performing a partial line replacement or replacing broken joints in the pipeline can correct the problem, but it’s not something that a homeowner can do on their own.
The Need for Annual Septic Inspections
Having your septic system inspected isn’t a one-time thing that’s completed after your tank is installed. It’s actually an important maintenance process that will help you keep your system up and running longer (protecting your initial investment).
How Often Should My Septic Tank be Pumped?
If your home is on a septic system, planning to have the tank pumped on a semi-regular basis is an important part of making sure your system is up and running at all times. The frequency of your pumping will depend on things like the size of your tank and the number of people living in your house.
