Most homeowners give little thought to their septic systems, until they have seepage in the yard or a backup into the house. Not only can these situations be expensive, but they are inconvenient, messy and harmful to the water supply & health of the community.
Heritage Plumbing can help you maintain your system. We have a full line of septic services that range from being able to camera the lines to inspect and diagnose issues, pumping the tank, to replacing the entire system.
Some septic system “Do’s” to help you maintain your septic system. It is very important to know the location of your septic system and assure there is access to the lid for pumping and inspections. It may be necessary to have a clean out installed. Have your tanks pumped every 3 – 5 years and keep a record of all inspections, repairs and dates the tank was pumped.
And now for the Don’ts…. DO NOT go down into or try to make repairs to your septic tank, please call a professional! Do not drive or park on your septic system. Do not dig, bury, build or plant anything but grass on your drain field – The grass will help prevent erosion and remove excess water. Please do not use septic tank additives, flush garbage or use harsh chemical cleaners – adding anything to your septic system that doesn’t belong there can be disastrous.
Please call a licensed professional, like Heritage Plumbing, Inc. at the first signs of septic failure. It takes all of us to keep our community safe & bacteria free.
