Septic Tanks (cleaning, maintenance and risers)
Maintenance and Cleanliness:
As far as maintenance goes for septic tanks, it’s just like when the trash fills up inside your home. You empty it. So when your septic tank has filled up, it’s time to empty it as well. Depending on how many people live in your house, and how big your septic tank is, the average amount of time before pumping your septic tank is approximately once every three years. If you have five or more people in your house, depending on the size of your septic tank you might way to pump your septic tank every two years instead.
All of the water that comes out of all parts of your house(dishwasher, shower, washing machine, bathrooms) go to the same place, your septic tank. Flushing some things down the toilet just does not work with septic systems and can cause faster build-up or even bigger issues that are a hassle to deal with. Many packages say their product is flushable. However, there is a wide range of things that should not be flushed. Some examples include baby wipes, baby diapers, tampons, tampon applicators, dental floss, q-tips, cigarette butts, grease, etc.
Septic tanks are buried at a range from one to five feet deep. Saving money and time on septic tanks is key, so getting one installed is a great tool. It brings the lid of your tank to ground level for a hassle-free inspection. You can open the top to see whether or not your septic tank is full or in need of being pumped. Saving you money on the costly find and digging charges.
