How Septic Systems Work
Simply stated, septic systems are an economical means of treating wastewater. In this process, waste is collected and liquids are disposed of straight into the ground, while solids are stored in a septic tank. Filtering processes create clean water that is transported into your absorption field or spray heads. The entire process relies on nature and technology to provide a more cost-friendly alternative to sewer systems. Additionally, septic systems offer the environmental benefit of lowering the risk of raw sewage discharge into the ground.
How Often Should I Clean My Septic System?
For residential septic systems, the commonly offered recommendation is to have cleanings performed every three years. Aerobic and commercial systems usually require servicing more often with a general recommendation consisting of two years or less. The amount of heavy use of your septic system directly affects the necessary cleaning frequency. Remember, not properly maintaining your septic system can lead to waste back-ups, solids getting into your field or spray heads and causing costly damage.
