Why Do I Need Septic Maintenance?

In short, you need your septic system maintained to keep it working properly. A septic system is a “living organism” that requires regular care. Waste material, over time, builds up in the septic tank, holding tank, and drain field and must be removed periodically to help keep your septic system running smoothly.

Regular septic cleanings and inspections will help ensure your system continues to serve your business or home for several years.

How Often Does My Septic System Need Maintenance?

How often your septic system will need maintenance will largely depend on the type of system it is and your household size.

  • Simple Gravity-fed systems: only need basic maintenance such as inspection and/or pumping, once every couple of years.
  • Complex systems: like sand filter systems and Alternative Treatment Technologies may need maintenance as often as every 6 months.

As for septic pumping, you should have that done every 3 to 5 years, but that also depends on your household size. Here is a more detailed breakdown of how often you should have your septic tank pumped.

How Can I Tell if My Septic System is Failing?

Below are some signs your septic system is failing or about to fail.

  • Slow draining toilets
  • Slow draining sinks
  • Gurgling sounds in your plumbing
  • Backups
  • Sewage odors in your yard where the drain field or septic tank is located
  • Algal blooms in nearby waters

If you’re experiencing any problems with your septic system, you shouldn’t delay. Septic systems are filled with sewage waste, so a failing system could pose serious health hazards to both you and your pets. It can also pollute the environment.
