Maximizing Performance of Your Septic Tank

Expert Insights from Anytime Septic Solutions

Whether you’re new to using a septic system or seeking guidance on how to maintain your existing septic tank, Anytime Septic Solutions Inc. is here to help you ensure optimal performance from your septic system.

Septic Tank Quick Overview

A septic tank is a substantial underground container situated near a home or business. Its primary role is to collect and hold all wastewater from the building through drain pipes.

Solid waste remains within the tank until it’s professionally pumped out by a septic company. Meanwhile, liquids are directed to an adjacent drain field, where they undergo natural processing before being released into the soil.

Maintaining Your Septic Tank

Effective septic tank maintenance is essential, and Anytime Septic Solutions Inc. has been providing installation and maintenance services for various septic systems for over 15 years. Here are five key elements of proper septic tank maintenance:

  • Regular Inspections:
  • Frequent inspections help detect early signs of damage or malfunction. By addressing issues promptly, you can prevent them from escalating into significant problems.
  • Scheduled Septic Tank Pumping.
  • Most septic tanks require pumping every three to five years. Neglecting this can lead to various issues, such as sewage backups, odors, leaks, and costly damage to the system.
  • Watch What Goes in the Tank. 

To keep your septic tank in peak condition, avoid adding the following items to it:

  • Grease
  • Food waste
  • Household cleaners
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Feminine products
  • Paper towels
  • Cigarette butts

Using your tank solely for normal bodily waste, approved bathroom tissue, and water from your drains will maintain its functionality.

  • Prompt Repairs:
  • If you observe problems with your septic tank or system or if an inspection reveals issues, don’t delay repairs. Timely action prevents further complications and saves you from unnecessary expenses.
