You wouldn’t expect your car to run for 100,000 miles without maintenance visits. You know if you did ignore regular maintenance that it would never last that long. The same is true regarding septic tank maintenance, yet many homeowners unfortunately find that out too late. Premature failure is one of the worst consequences of not having regular septic tank maintenance, but that’s not the only reason why it is so important.
Equally tragic is when a septic system doesn’t give any indication that it is not operating correctly, yet it is allowing contaminants into the soil and water table. Often, homes that have septic tanks also have a well for their family’s water usage, so if it becomes contaminated, it can really endanger your family’s health. It can mean trouble for neighbors, as well, so if you suspect that a neighbor is not receiving septic tank maintenance, it might be a good idea to talk to them about it.
Septic tank maintenance costs are far less than the repair costs that can be avoided with maintenance. A septic tank maintenance company, like us at Quality Septic Inc., will be glad to keep track of when it is time for service and contact you to schedule it. This acts much like the sticker the auto service company puts on your windshield as a reminder for the next time you need an oil change.
