Unfortunately, one of the most overlooked parts of a property is the septic tank
. In as much as it is overlooked, we at Plumbers 911 cannot stress the importance of knowing how your tank works and keeping it in tiptop shape.
Tips to Avoid Septic Tank Problems from Your Trusted Montana Plumber
A well-installed system can go without need for repair for decades. However, there are ways in which you can prevent your tank from prematurely giving out.
Avoid flushing objects that do not easily decompose
Septic tanks are designed in order to treat and handle wastes that easily rot. As such, it is best not to flush materials like condoms, feminine products, cigarette butts and diapers. These materials would settle at the bottom of your tank with the solids making it hard for the system to do its job.
Cars should be parked far away from the tank
Pressure from the weight of the vehicles can damage the pipes that make up a part of the system. It is a good idea to park your cars away from it.
Practice mindful landscaping
Certain plants can hide a septic system’s unsightly pipes. However, planting flowers and shrubs might make it difficult for professionals to access the tank when it is time to clean it.
A home would not be a safe place to live in even if it is the most expensive home in the world, if its septic tank keeps on malfunctioning. To ensure that this tank is always in its tip top shape, you need to have it regularly checked by one of the network of professional plumbers at Plumbers 911.
