The Importance of Septic System Maintenance

Your septic tank is working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That being said, it’s important that they are properly maintained. As with any major investment, it’s important to make sure it’s cared for to continue running strong.

Oftentimes, septic systems are overlooked due to their location. We know they are there, but are out of sight. However, with proper care and maintenance, your septic system can last anywhere from 25-30 years.

Why Take Care of the Septic System?

While it does cost to have your septic system maintained, the cost of not maintaining your septic system can present itself in the form of a major repair soon down the road. As with a car needing oil changes, septic systems need proper care to avoid costly repairs. If not properly maintained, a new septic system may need to be installed and can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $10,000 (depending on the size).

In addition, if incorrectly maintained, a septic system may cause harm to the local environment. If not pumped regularly, your septic system could contaminate groundwater, drinking water systems, and well systems.

How Do I Maintain My Septic System?

If cared for properly throughout the years, you can make your septic system last for a very long time. At Honc, we often compare septic system maintenance to the maintenance of an automobile. The minimal effort throughout the year can save thousands down the road in costly repairs or replacements.

One way to properly maintain your septic system is to complete an annual inspection of your septic tank. This inspection helps to ensure that your system is running properly and whether or not you need a septic tank pump-out. However, there is no need to worry about taking this task on by yourself – Honc is happy to help!
