For rural homeowners, one of the most important maintenance services to invest in is septic tank cleaning.

What are Common Septic Tank Problems?
While there are many advantages to using a septic tank to store your waste, there are several common repairs that many homeowners may need to address with these units. These include:
Problems from Incorrect Usage
Pouring grease or other non-water soluble items down the drain will create blockages in your septic system. This improper usage causes problems that require extensive repairs to the tank and pipes.
Skimping on the cost of installing a septic tank by a person who is neither experienced nor skilled will end up costing you in the long run. Many of the issues we repair are from past mistakes from inexperienced work.
It is never recommended to plant anything near the septic tank. If a root system takes hold of the tank, it will burst through, creating expensive issues that require immediate repair.
The most common issue we see comes from tanks that have not been maintained properly. Not getting your tank checked or cleaned often enough will cause the tank to overfill and create problems.
Why Invest in Maintenance?
Getting your tank cleaned or emptied on a regular basis will prevent problems and allow your trusted plumbing professionals to note any other issues that may arise with the tank. Depending on the size of the tank, it’s a good idea to have it emptied or cleaned between one and three years. In these cases, larger, more modern units can go longer between cleanings while smaller or older units should be checked more often to prevent problems.
Take Prevention into your own Hands
There are several things that you as a homeowner can do to prevent septic tank problems in the future. Some of these things include:
- Never flushing solid items down the drain as they create blockages.
- Never pour grease down the drain. It will harden and create a blockage.
- Know the limit of your tank and keep track of its cleanings and maintenance.
- Invest in regular maintenance. You will experience fewer repairs, and your tank will last longer.
