How long has it been since you’ve taken advantage of our Haymarket VA septic tank service? If you can’t remember the last time you had your tank pumped out and your system inspected, it’s probably been too long. Our recommendation is to have it done every three to five years if you want to ensure your system provides you years of reliable and largely hassle-free service.
If you’ve recently purchased your home and you don’t have any information about when the system was last inspected, the safe bet is to assume that it’s time and give our office a call. Our Haymarket VA septic tank service is one of the more common that we provide, and we’re always happy to assist.
The reason it matters is this: Home septic systems don’t have any onboard diagnostics. They don’t have any means of self-correcting. If your system has a problem, then it’s only going to get worse over time, and unfortunately, most problems you could have with your septic system have the same end point: Sooner or later, they’re going to result in raw sewage backing up into your home.
If you’ve never experienced that in your life, count yourself very lucky indeed. If you have, you know what a nightmare it can be. It’s well worth the effort to do everything in your power to keep that from happening.
As we mentioned above, our general recommendation is to take advantage of our Haymarket VA septic tank service every three to five years but in some circumstances, you may need service more often than that. The question then, becomes how do you know? Here are some common signs to keep an eye out for:
- If you start noticing foul smells wafting up from your kitchen sinks or toilets
- If your pipes start rattling, shaking and groaning every time you turn on a faucet or flush a toilet
- If you have areas of persistently damp or muddy ground in the area in and around your drain field
- If you have sinks that drain with an almost painful slowness and toilets that won’t flush properly no matter how vigorously you use your trusty plunger
All of those are signs that your septic system is struggling. If you see any of the above, don’t hesitate; give our office a call right away and we’ll send one of our experienced techs out to your home to take care of the problem, whatever it might be.
