Answer: Septic tanks generally need pumping every 2 to 4 years. However, the frequency can vary based on factors like household size, water usage, and tank size.
Answer: Generally, additives aren’t necessary. A well-maintained system with regular pumping and proper use is usually sufficient. We do offer an additive if you are looking to purchase one.
Answer: Only human waste and toilet paper should be flushed. Avoid flushing non-biodegradable items, grease, chemicals, and excessive amounts of household cleaners.
Answer: Signs of a failing system include slow drains, unpleasant odors, lush green grass around the drain field, and gurgling sounds in the plumbing. Regular inspections can catch issues early.
Answer: Tree roots can damage septic systems, so it’s best to plant trees away from the drain field. Avoid building structures or parking heavy vehicles on top of the system.
Answer: Yes, a septic inspection is crucial before buying a home. It assesses the system’s condition, ensuring you’re aware of any potential issues before making the purchase.
Answer: Septic tanks are typically located a few feet underground in the same direction that your big black O pipe that leaves your basement. If you still can’t find them, try looking at your property drawings or we can help you locate them.
Answer: A septic riser is a vertical pipe that extends from the septic tank to the ground surface, providing easier access for maintenance. While not mandatory, it makes inspections and pumping more efficient.
Answer: Additives cannot replace pumping. Pumping removes solid waste, while additives may not effectively break down solids. Regular pumping is essential for system longevity.
Answer: With proper care and maintenance, septic systems can last 20 to 30 years or more. Regular inspections, pumping, and responsible use contribute to a longer lifespan.
