Why have a Septic Inspection?
All components of a septic system are underground so it is not as easy to see where they are located or when there is a problem. Inspections provide good indicators about how a system is functioning and how it has been maintained. If you are buying a home with a septic system, know what you are getting and protect your investment by having the system inspected by a licensed professional. AAA Septic offers multiple inspections based on your needs.
Keeping Your System Healthy
Don’t flush any items except your wastewater and toilet paper. Sanitary products, paper towels, diapers, coffee grounds, and cigarette butts will clog your system and cause harm to it.
Don't wash anything down your sink. Your septic system was not made for food waste, especially grease and fat.
Reduce waste water. Repair leaks, faulty toilets, and install fixtures and appliances that conserve water.
Do pumping before large gatherings to prepare your system for the extra load.
Schedule your septic tank to be pumped or inspected every 3-5 years
Emergency tips - If you are experiencing any slow drainage in your home, plumbing backups, odd noises in your pipes or drains, unpleasant smells outside, or wet grass near your septic tank, call AAA Septic immediately to have your tank cleaned and/or inspected.
