Dangers of Not Receiving Regular Septic Tank Pumping or Inspections, Gig Harbor Peninsula, Washington

Your septic tank is an important component of the septic system in your home. By transporting and filtering used water, it removes harmful solid waste, preventing it from reaching your local water supply. Hemley's Septic Tank Cleaning in Gig Harbor, WA, stresses the importance of regular septic inspections and pumping services to prevent costly repairs.

Septic Tank Pumping

When your septic tank filters the water used in your home, the solid waste remains at the bottom of the tank. Hemley's Septic Tank Cleaning suggests you perform septic tank pumping at least once every one to three years. If not properly maintained and pumped, this solid waste can build up, causing clogs that will affect water usage in your home. In the worst case, improper maintenance can cause your septic system to fail, creating backup and sludge in your sewage system as well as the ground outside where your septic tank is located. In the event of septic tank failure, the only choice a homeowner has is to replace it, which can be extremely costly.

In addition to keeping the water flowing smoothly in your home and filtering out solid waste, septic tanks also prevent harmful bacteria and other pollutants from entering your local water table. When your septic tank fails or produces noticeable leakage, it doesn't just affect you as a homeowner; it affects your whole neighborhood. In the event of a septic tank failure or sewage spill that's not properly contained, the water surrounding your home can be polluted, causing harm to the plants and wildlife in your area. To prevent your septic system from failing, you should receive regular septic inspections and maintenance.
