1. What is the benefit of maintaining my septic system?

Pumping the tank on a regular basis will prolong the life of the system and deter potential septic issues that may occur in the future. (i.e. backups)

2. How do I know when my tank needs to be pumped?

There are a few symptoms to look out for. A toilet that is gurgling or may take a couple extra flushes, and/or slow drainage of sinks, tubs, or toilets.

3. How often should I pump my tank?

The time between pumping has many varying factors. It is dependent on the number of people in the house and if the home is either a permanent or seasonal residence.

4. What is a filter and why should I clean it?

During an inspection, we will look to see if your system has a filter. This is the last line of defence between your tank and your leach field. it should be cleaned every time the tank is pumped to remove any solid buildup. This will alleviate clogged pipes in your leach field and in turn prevent backups or premature failure of your leach field.
