Inside your septic tank, a biological reaction is occurring. Liquids are released through a field drain, while solids break down inside the tank. Basically this means that over time the substance in your tank builds up and eventually needs to be cleaned out.
If your toilets and drains are running slow or you notice unpleasant odours throughout the house, it could be a sign there’s a buildup or blockage in your system. Blockages can lead to a failing septic system, which can result in wastewater ending up in your yard or even inside your home!
We recommend to have your septic tank cleaned regularly to ensure proper operation and minimise potential health risks for you and your family.
The time between services is usually around 3-5 years, depending on the amount of people your tank services and the size of the tank itself. During the cleaning process we can evaluate your system to identify any minor issues and we’ll make sure they’re fixed before they become more serious problems.
If these problems go unnoticed, they could lead to back-ups or leaks in your system that could warrant a complete replacement – which could cost you thousands of dollars!
