The 2 Silent Septic Killers

The 2 Silent Septic Killers

It’s Halloween time, but what’s scarier than vampires and ghosts? A backed up septic system.

There are two main silent septic killers – which you can help prevent!

  • NOT pumping your tank. When a septic tank is not pumped regularly to remove the solids, the solids continue to build up until they get pushed out to the drainfield and clog up the pipes. Then, it’s too late! You can easily prevent this by pumping your tank every 3-5 years.
  • ROOTS in your drainfield. Over time, roots can grow into the drainfield pipes causing clogs that prevent the wastewater from flowing through. Cleaning your drainfield by rootering or jetting can help your system last longer. Whether your system is already clogged up or you want to prevent clogs, drainfield cleaning can help.
