Easy septic tank maintenance tips
A good septic tank maintenance regime is your
sure fire way to make sure that it will run
smoothly throughout its lifetime. Septic tanks
that are well maintained can run for between 20
to 30 years but failure to do so will result in
its early deterioration of the tank and the drain
field which will eventually lead to expensive
repairs and replacement bills.

Easy septic tank maintenance tips
You need to treat the septic tank the same way
you treat your car when there is regular
maintenance, system checks and fluid changes you
can be sure that the car will last its entire
lifetime. The benefit of regular checks and
maintenance is that you are able to catch any
problems earlier such that you are able to fix
them before they lead to system failure. This
will potentially save you thousands of dollars
that could have been spent in replacement costs.

Have it pumped regularly Average homes have
their septic tanks pumped out every three to five
years. When you avoid regular pumping, you lead
to the accumulation of solid waste and sludge
that will easily leach towards the drain field
if your system must run well all drain field
effluent needs to be free of solids. Divert
all access runoff from the tank Make sure that
all gutters and drainpipes are deliberately
directed away from the septic tank and drain
fields. By doing this you will be assisting the
septic tank to treat grey water and waste
effectively. Letting the runoff get into your
system causes the septic tank to become
hydronically overloaded and the drain field
becomes oversaturated and will not operate to its
full potential.

Access lids and ports should be sealed tight
There are times when water penetrates lids and
ports that are sealed poorly and this easily
causes problems on your septic tank. Water can
easily penetrate through crevices and which
finally leads to an overload on the tank and
drain field becoming saturated. This leads to
problems related with pressure which cause the
pump to run too often so as to waste money and
energy

Routine inspection In some states there is a
requirement that every homeowner has their septic
tank inspected once a year to check for all
systems apart from gravity feed systems which are
inspected once every three years. Checking your
system regularly allows for a quick diagnosis and
treatment of any problems before they lead to
system failure.

Do not cover or obstruct the System in any way
All the components of the Septic Tanks
Installation should not be covered or obstructed
in any way the common culprits are asphalt,
decks, concrete, structures and framing that
normally impede access to this area.
