Don't Let Septic Disasters Happen to You!
Certain things in life continue to operate properly without much maintenance. It's easy to think this way about septic systems and that can be a costly mistake. Just like a car in need of an oil change and a tune-up, your septic system needs routine maintenance to stay functional.
Did you know that a septic repair can cost you anywhere from $5,000 to $12,000? That's a lot of money! Unfortunately, too often the case is that homeowners give their septic system attention until it's too late. You can avoid a disaster by having septic maintenance professionals come out on a regular basis. We are not talking every month here but once a year is a good frequency to get in the routine of. Septic maintenance includes a septic tank inspection, filter cleaning, drainfield remediation, and a visual inspection where the system is located.
Yearly costs to maintain your system come at a fraction of what a septic emergency would cost you, both monetarily and emotionally. If you have risers installed over your septic tank then it will cost you even less! The technician can open the lids and do all his maintenance from there without having to dig up your yard. Risers are also a great reminder that your septic system is there and in need of your attention periodically.
Staying up-to-date with your septic system maintenance will give you peace of mind that you won't have to deal with a septic disaster.
