Your home’s septic system is amazingly robust and durable, designed to last decades. As is the case with any piece of equipment though, if it doesn’t get regular maintenance, you’re going to have problems down the road.
We recommend having your system inspected roughly every three to five years, which as it turns out, is the same time interval you want to have your tank pumped out, which makes it easy and convenient to have both done at the same time.
Most of the time, the “three to five year rule” will serve you well, but there are times when you should have an inspection performed more frequently. For instance, call Nokesville, VA’s #1 septic tank service company if you notice any of the following:
- Brightly colored grass growing over your septic tank or drain field (it will be a much different shade than all the other grass in your yard)
- Persistent standing water, mud, or soggy ground in the area of your septic tank and drain field
- Pipes that make your house sound haunted by creaking and groaning every time you flush a toilet or turn on a faucet
- Toilets that don’t flush properly, or sinks that drain slowly
All of these things are symptoms that point to an underlying problem with your system. The problem is, by the time these symptoms become noticeable, whatever problem is causing them has gotten pretty serious, and is only going to get worse over time.
If action isn’t taken sooner, rather than later, the problem may become so serious that repairs are no longer an option. At that point, you’ll be looking at an expensive system replacement. Not a happy situation.
