How Does Septic Tank Pumping Help Diagnose Problems?
You may have heard that regularly scheduled septic tank pumping helps maintain your system. You may half-heartedly call for maintenance, and you don’t really keep track of the last time you had your tank pumped. At Averett Septic Tank Co Inc., we know the importance of septic tank pumping and how it is critical in helping diagnose and correct problems with your septic system before they become major emergencies.

  • Repairs to Tank Filters – When waste leaves your property and is flushed into your septic system, it goes through a series of filters and pipes before ending up in the drain field. When we complete septic tank pumping, it allows us to check for damage to these filters and install new ones to keep your system working its best.
  • Drain Field Inspections – Your drain field can become clogged over time or the materials can break down and do not work properly to allow water to absorb back into the ground. Septic tank pumping is a great time to complete drain field inspections to ensure your septic system is operating properly from start to finish.
  • Damage to the Tank – Over time, your septic tank may show signs of corrosion and need attention to keep it working its best. When you call us for septic tank pumping, we can assess any problems and make sure to correct issues before they cause bigger problems.
