If you have a home with a septic system, then you may have a regular septic pumping schedule. What you may not expect, however, is the condition of your septic tank and other septic components when your septic professional opens the lid. Truthfully, septic pumping can reveal at lot about the condition of your septic system, both good and bad.
For example, if your septic system is in good condition, you may not find much in the way of accumulated waste in your tank. There may be some buildup, but primarily you’ll find that gray water has filtered successfully from the tank through the drain field and safely back into the ground water. Your septic professionals will thank you because they won’t have much in the way of cleanup to do!
Alternatively, septic pumping can also be an indicator that your septic system needs some attention. Whether there is too much buildup in your tank, the filtration system is looking worse for wear, or the tank itself has sustained damage, you wouldn’t know unless you had someone come take a look and clean your tank on a regular basis. If this scenario sounds familiar, it will be important to talk with your septic professional about the ways you can improve your septic system performance for the long term.
The good news is that septic pumping is the best way to maintain your system and lower the risk of a malfunction somewhere down the line. At Averett Septic Tank Co.
