It’s one significant project to install a home wastewater treatment system at your property.

Septic Cleaning Frequency Guidelines

Tanks must be cleaned out and checked now and then.

The actual frequency can vary from tank to tank, but every two years can be a reasonable starting point.

In order to guard the soil and ground water of neighbors, some local governments have regulations that suggest how often these pumpings should occur.

A tank will slowly fill.

It moves out a great deal of the waste, but some stays behind and collects in the tank.

A tank’s job is to get rid of the pathogens in it.

When it starts to fill with waste, it is less able to do that.

Filled tanks can allow partially treated solids or wastewater to get up to the surface. That isn’t good.

When your tank gets to about 30 percent full, its ability to work is affected and it’s time to be pumped.

A Septic System – How Many Years Will it Last?

A properly constructed, appropriately sized and regularly maintained system should last a long time.

If you remember to regularly clean your system, and you don’t overload it, it should provide many decades of reliable use.

Don’t expect yours to last indefinitely.

But it will most likely last as long as you live in your home.

Your system’s life will be impacted by criteria including what sort of items are getting put down the toilet, frequency of cleaning, interference by groundwater, extensive tree roots, soil composition, heavy usage, or vehicle traffic on top of the drain field.

What Takes Place to Make a System Stop Working Right?

Each system is put in to handle a set amount of waste and water.

They can only handle so much volume at one time.

Your home may have a small tank or a big tank.

It generally is based upon how many bedrooms the home has.

If a big family is using a tank designed to be used by a smaller family, their system might not be able to keep up with the amount of waste or water.

If the tank gets too full, it’s possible that it can’t make that waste material safe before it goes out of the tank and combines again with your soil.

Mishaps happen as well.

If a water softener or water faucet flows for a day or two, it can completely fill up the tank.

Your drain field could stop working also.

It may be affected by tree roots, local water runoff, or the makeup of the soil itself.
