Septic Service: Pumping and Maintenance
The secret to a healthy septic system is routine service. Here at L&L septic service, we provide complete preventative maintenance to give you peace of mind that your septic system is working smoothly.
Over time, sludge, debris and other materials will collect in your septic tank or cesspool, decreasing the system’s efficiency. Pumping your septic and cesspool regularly will prevent problems and keep your system in good working order.
The best way to prevent septic failure is to do regular maintenance.
Maintaining your home’s septic system or cesspool can be very simple, having a preventative maintenance plan is crucial and essential to prolonging the life of your septic system.
During our septic pumping service, our skilled crew members will note the overall condition of the septic system and the levels in the tank. Noting the levels will help indicate whether there is a potential issue with the system.
Then, the tank will be pumped, removing all of the liquid and solid waste. Once the pumping is done, our crew member will check the inlet and outlet sanitary tees also known as the baffles to the tank to ensure they are intact and working properly. If there is a filter present, it will be removed cleaned and reinstalled.
Experts recommend you should have your system pumped every one to two years, but in order to determine this several factors should be considered when deciding how often your septic tank needs to be serviced.
- The age of the system,
- The number of occupants in your home,
- Is there a garbage disposal
- The amount of laundry being done in the home.
Every system is different. What is right for your system may not be right for everyone else. Here at L&L septic we will assess your situation and recommend the best plan for you.
