If your house utilizes a septic system, it is your responsibility to maintain and service that system. This maintenance requires the periodic pumping and cleaning out of the septic tank. A few of the common problems that can arise from not having your septic tank pumped: an unpleasant septic odor, wastewater leaking back into your home, and the leakage or overflow of toxic solids from the septic tank. Speedie Sewer &Septic Cleaning knows that every septic tank owner should take the following steps to maintain their septic tank.

Pump out your Septic Tank

Recommendations of frequency to have your septic tank pumped will range from 2-5 years based on the size of the septic tank, number of people in the household, and amount of daily use. Having your septic tank pumped is as simple as calling Speedie Sewer & Septic Cleaning, your local septic company, and asking them to send a pumper truck around. (If you don’t know where the manhole cover for your septic tank is, this may not be so simple!Speedie Septic can locate it for you if you don’t know.)Speedie will vacuum the sludge, called septage, found in your septic tank and haul it off for proper disposal.

Minimize the Waste your Septic System Receives

If you can reduce the amount of wastewater and solids that enter your septic system, you can often prolong its life. Common methods include minimizing the amount of water you use, avoiding the use of a garbage disposal (which sends solids into your septic tank), and avoiding the regular repetitive use of chemicalssuch as water softeners and drain cleaners which kill the bacteria your septic system relies on.

Have your Septic Tank Inspected on a Regular Basis

Check with your local city office, or call Speedie; they know the laws in your particular area of Northeast Ohio. Having your septic tank inspected according to local requirements helps to prevent local water supplies, rivers, and ponds from becoming toxic to animals and humans.
