Have you had any maintenance work done on your septic system recently? If the answer is no, why not take advantage of the ideal conditions in the summer and have your system serviced.
Why Is Summer the Best Season for Septic System Maintenance?
1. It’s Easier to Access Your Septic Tank
Now that the snow has melted and the ground unfroze, your septic system is much easier to locate and access. This allows the septic professional to work with ease and complete a job more quickly and efficiently. It may also save you money if a project can be completed in less time.
2. Fix Leaks and Issues Before the Next Cold Season
While it is easy to access fixtures and identify leaks, get those repairs done. This will help you prepare for the freezing temperatures that come later in the year, which can cause frozen pipes and other septic problems. You can read more about common winter septic tank problems here.
3. More Usage Requires Maintenance
The summer months mean hanging out with friends and family. Your system usage increases, and if it hasn’t been maintained, could lead to problems like backups.
How Do I Know if My Septic System Needs Service?
If you wait too long between maintenance visits, you could suffer from a failing septic system. Be sure to contact a septic professional ASAP if you notice any of the following:
- Yard smells like sewage
- Sewage backups in toilets, tubs or sinks
- Slow draining plumbing fixtures
- Visible sewage surfacing on lawns or ditches
- Lush growth or soft areas on top of your septic field
We’re here and ready to complete your septic system maintenance this summer!
