Tips for Septic System Maintenance

Septic System MaintenanceFor septic system maintenance our experts at Wright Septic recommend that you regularly inspect and pump your septic system every two years. Like any system, your septic tank system will require maintenance. When compared to communally connected sewage systems, septic systems usually require less maintenance than others. Lack of attention, neglected or abused systems can cause many septic problems. You are more likely to experience septic issues if you:

  • Excessive amounts of grease and oil will cause inlets to block
  • Certain chemicals are strong enough to kill the beneficial septic bacteria
  • Excessive water entering the system will overload it, eventually causing it to fail
  • Flushing non-biodegradable items will quickly fill a septic tank

Wright’s highly-skilled technicians also recommend:

  • Regular inspections and pumping not only prevent worse damages in the future but also save you money and time
  • Use your water efficiently in order to reduce the load on your tank
  • Do not dispose of hazardous household wastes in sinks or toilets
