Why Do You Need to Clean Your Septic Tank?

Why Do You Need to Clean Your Septic Tank?

Across the immediate region and surrounding areas that we cover, we know that there are many, many households and buildings that rely on the use of a septic tank system.

Here at E&E Waste, we specialise in everything septic tank related. You would be amazed by how many homeowners don’t know that they need to be keeping their septic tanks as clean as possible. It is something that needs regular maintenance.

If you have a septic tank at home, here are some of the key reasons why you need to clean it regularly.

1. Don’t Let Your Sewage Backup

Most importantly if a septic tank is left untreated and unpumped for too long, you run the risk of experiencing a sewage backup. This is when the odour and contents of the tank start to creep their way back up into your drains and toilets causing a massive problem within your home!

2. It Can Be A Public Health Hazard

Not only do you have a responsibility for your own home, but you also have a responsibility for your neighbours and your neighbourhood. An untreated, backing up septic tank can actually be classed as a public health hazard due to all of the bacteria that is overflowing. If you are identified as someone who is putting others at risk with your lack of septic tank maintenance, then you stand to get in trouble with the local authorities.

3. Cost Savings in the Long Run

Ultimately, if you don’t regularly clean your septic tank, you are going to end up having to unnecessarily shell out lots of money for a new one, when what you could have done was simply pump it on a frequent basis to avoid all of this extra work and struggle!

    That’s interesting that an overflowing septic tank could be considered a public health hazard. I wouldn’t have thought that it would be so dangerous for the nearby area as well. I should make sure that if I have a tank installed while building my next house, that I keep it pumped.

    I didn’t know that proper maintenance was so important for a septic tank! Maybe it would be a good idea for me to get a professional to help me out with this. That seems like a great way to ensure that my septic system lasts me a long time.

    We recommended pumping your septic tank every two to three years. However, small septic systems require yearly attention. With that, you get to avoid issues with the entire septic system, which results in a lot of inconveniences. When full, scum and sludge tend to form on the inside, resulting in clogs, and that alters the system functionality. Also, your home risks exposure to raw sewage because of poor drainage.
