Failing to keep up with regular pumping, cleaning, and inspections of your septic system can increase the risk of septic tank problems.
While no septic system owner wants to worry about problems, the reality is that this system is made up of multiple components that can wear out, break down, or become damaged. Keeping an eye out for warning signs of septic issues is one way to prevent more significant damage, as is keeping up with regular professional maintenance. One of the key components in any system is the septic tank, which is the concrete box buried beneath the ground that connects to the plumbing within the house and allows treated effluent waste to move out to the drain field.
Failing to keep up with regular pumping, cleaning, and inspections of your septic system can increase the risk of septic tank problems. The tank can become overloaded, leading to clogs and backups that are very unpleasant. Other habits that can cause septic tank problems include parking heavy machinery on the ground above where the tank is buried, putting strong household cleaners down the drains in excess, and flushing larger items down the toilet. You may have standing water on your property or slow-moving drains as the result of septic tank problems.
