Septic Tank Requires Regular Maintenance

Your septic system / tank is meant to separate liquids from solids and to provide some breakdown of organic matter in the wastewater. However, if proper maintenance is not conducted on a regular basis, issues can occur that could impact your septic system, yard, home and belongings.
Below are some clear identifiers that your septic system may not be functioning optimally:
  • The ground around the septic tank or over the leaching bed may be soggy or spongy to walk on.
  • Toilets, showers and sinks may back up or may take longer than usual to drain.
  • Occasional sewage odours may become noticeable, particularly after a rainfall.
  • Gray or black liquids may be surfacing in your yard or backing up through fixtures into the house.

Commercial and Industrial Septic System Maintenance

Commercial and industrial septic systems must be pumped more frequently than residential septic systems. Greasy waste and waste with chemical residues require septic systems to be pumped as often as once every three months.

It’s a great idea to establish a planned service schedule to avoid the frustration and hassle of having to remember to call. And if you’re like every other busy business owner or manager, it’s the last thing on your mind. Unfortunately, neglecting your septic system can result in a messy, costly and potentially embarrassing overflow.

There’s a few things that dictate how often you need to have it pumped:

  1. Size of the tank
  2. Volume of wastewater flow
  3. Amount and types of debris contained within the wastewater
