WASTE WATER PUMPING
One maintenance item that is the most overlooked and forgotten about is having the waste water pumped out of your septic system? Regular maintenance of your septic system will help protect this costly investment in your home? Having your septic system inspected, and the waste water of your septic tank pumped a minimum of once every 2 years, can save you from frustrations and costly repairs later!
Why Do You Need A Pumping Service?
When your septic system is properly designed, installed and maintained, your septic system will effectively treat your household wastewater for years to come. If your septic system doesn’t receive proper and regular maintenance and waste water pumping, it could end up costing you thousands of dollars to repair or replace it. Especially if you have a system failure in the middle of winter. A failing system can release untreated waste water into the groung which can contaminate groundwater that might be a source of your drinking water. Also, your septic system must be in good working order if you ever decide to sell your home.
When septic systems are properly designed, constructed, and maintained, they effectively reduce or eliminate most human health or environmental threats posed by pollutants in household wastewater. However, they require regular maintenance or they can fail. Septic systems need to be monitored to ensure that they work properly throughout their service lives.
A primary reason to properly maintain your septic system and have your waste water pumping done, is to save money! A failed septic system is expensive to repair or replace, and a lack of maintenance is often the culprit. Having yearly inspections of your septic system done is a bargain when compared to the cost of replacing the your whole system. How often your system will need waste water pumping depends on how many people are living in your home, and what the size of your system is. A failed septic system, or one in that is need of repair, will lower your property value and could put at risk of legal liability.
Protecting health and the environment
There are many reasons for safe treatment and regular waste water pumping of sewage. Among these reasons are preventing the spread of infection and disease, and protecting ground water. Common pollutants caused by household wastewater are phosphorus, nitrogen, and bacteria and viruses that could cause sickness or disease. Having a properly functioning septic system will effectively remove most of these dangerous pollutants.
Approximately one quarter of homes in the United States use septic systems. That is more than 4 billion gallons of wastewater produced every day that is hidden below the ground surface by a septic system. Contaminated ground water can be caused by a septic system that is not adequately treating sewage. This contamination poses a significant threat to your health, because it can contaminate water above and below the ground, including your well, which can cause disease and infection in both people and animals. These dangers range from eye and ear infections to acute gastrointestinal illness, as well as more serious diseases such as hepatitis.
