3 Reasons to Pump Your Septic Tank Regularly, West Plains, Missouri

To keep your septic tank operating like a well-oiled machine, it’s important to have the system pumped every two to five years, depending on its size and several other factors. Sludge buildup must be removed periodically to maintain the health of the waste disposal system. As a homeowner, it’s necessary to learn all of the details about your wastewater system, including the last time it was pumped. Here, the supply experts at Olson Precast Concrete in West Plains, MO, explain the benefits of regular septic tank pumping.

3 Reasons to Schedule Regular Septic Tank Pumping

1. Maintain Longevity

Septic TanksThe average concrete septic tank can last nearly 40 years when its properly maintained. Regular pumping and maintenance will help ensure the life of the tank. It’s essential to set up a pumping schedule and follow it consistently. The schedule is based on the size of your household and the type of septic system you own. With regular cleaning and inspection, the system could last even longer than projected.

2. Prevent Overflow

When the tank is neglected, all types of troublesome and smelly problems can arise. When large amounts of waste solids or sludge build up, it will begin to clog the system and eventually cause flooding of the drainfield. At that point, odors and wastewater leakage into your yard is possible. Prevent overflows by cleaning the system when it’s recommended by a septic contractor.

3. Save Money

Having the tank cleaned once every few years is relatively inexpensive compared to the repair costs of a damaged septic system. If sewage backs up into your home or floods the drainfield, an expensive replacement may be required. When the tank is pumped on time, you’ll have one less thing to worry about, and more money in your wallet.
