Regular pump-outs
« on: March 22, 2018, 03:06:00 AM »
Regular pump-outs are important to maintain the health bacteria in your septic tank. Plan ahead for preventative maintenance-Don’t wait for a major problem to occur. Healthy bacteria prefer warm weather. Emptying a septic tank in the winter may not allow enough time for decomposition to begin before the winter’s coldest temperature sets in. Unless you’re having an emergency or need the septic tank to be pumped for a real estate transaction. It is best to wait for warmer weather. (Your septic contractor will thank you for not having to service the tank when it is 12 degrees out and surrounding soil is frozen)

Keep all water flow away from your septic system-This includes gutter drain run-off, sump pump discharge. Keep all water softener discharge out of your septic system. If this is allowed to discharge into your septic system you just sent your septic system a death notice. Be prepared for early failure of your system. Plow snow away from your septic system components. And keep salt away as well. Keep the area free & clean of any impervious items.(such as patios or hardscaping) Only grass should be on top of your septic system components including the septic tank.
