Know Your Septic Tank Better

Having a better understanding of your septic tank can help you maintain it well. The septic tank is the most vital element of a functional septic system containing pumps, alarms and sand filters. It takes regular maintenance to prevent the solids that sediment and eventually deteriorate your septic tank and bring its overall performance down.

Once these solids flow over to the liquid side of your tank, they can plug up or even permanently damage the septic pump, which is why it’s wise to call a professional if you face any such issue. To prevent such build-up of solids, you should religiously follow the do’s and don’t compiled above.
