Why It’s Important To Maintain Your Septic Tank

If you are like most homeowners, you probably don’t think about your septic tank very often. However, it is important to remember that proper maintenance of your septic tank is crucial for the health and safety of your family and property.


No matter which size or style of septic tank you have it is important to have it cleaned regularly to ensure that it is working properly. Unless you take care of your system, eventually it is going to fail.


Here are three important reasons to arrange for septic tank cleaning:

  1. Good Health: An improperly maintained septic tank leads to significant health risks created when inadequately treated wastewater drains into your yard, well, and surface water. A severely neglected tank might even cause backwash to flow into your home, introducing bacteria into it.
  2. Financial Savings: Maintaining your septic tank through regular cleanings is less expensive than replacing it. When your tank is properly cleaned, the service technician can examine the tank for signs of structural damage, including cracks, leaks, and issues created over the years by the settling of the tank.
  3. Property Value: If you decide to sell your property, an inspection of your septic tank could reveal problems that indicate the system hasn’t been maintained properly for years. As a result, you could lose a potential sale. You might be asked to reduce your asking price or be required to replace the system.
