An overflowing septic system can cause many problems for the home or business owner. The most obvious of these are the mess created when the system no longer flushes properly and sewage overflows into the building. This mess can be quite expensive to cleanup but even more expensive to repair the resultant damage. If the overflow is really bad and not caught in time it can soak into structural materials requiring major repairs. For the homeowner this could mean relocating temporarily, just an inconvenience. The business owner however could be out any number of expenses over what should have been a small problem and easily handled by Septic Pumping Flemington NJ professionals.
Your septic system is relatively simple in operation. It consists of a collection tank where the raw sewage is first trapped. The next stage is usually an overflow tank where the excess water and sewage runs to as the first tank is breaking it down. From there the excess water runs out into leech lines spread out over an area as large as possible. This is of course a simple description but it gives one a general idea. Because the waste breaks down in the tank the owner doesn’t require constant pumping of the system. Instead, Septic Pumping Flemington NJ services can generally pump your septic system every few years.
So now you are wondering how often every few years really is. There is no easy answer. It depends on the size of the tank in the system as well as how many people use it and how much water and sewage flow into it. The general consensus is you should use Septic Pumping Flemington NJ to clean your system every one to three years. Many of us who live in rural areas have heard the stories where someone has gone five or even ten years before cleaning but believe me, this is the exception and not the rule.
Our homes and businesses are major investments in our lives. Such investments require well thought out and properly handled maintenance schedules. If your home or business uses a septic system then your maintenance schedule should include the use of Septic Pumping Flemington NJ to ensure problem free septic functionality.
