Summer Septic System Maintenance Tips
Summer is just around the corner! While you’re probably more preoccupied planning your family vacation, it’s important to remember to take care of things around your home too. Your septic system, for example, may need more than regular septic tank inspections and tank pumping this season. To ensure your system lasts a long time and to avoid any unnecessary septic repairs, you should keep these maintenance tips in mind this summer.
1. Keep an Eye Out for Standing Water
Summertime means lots of sunshine, but it can also result in storms. Increased rainfall can cause the soil on your property to become saturated. Standing water near your septic system or drainfield is never a good thing. Make sure you look for it often and call a professional for assistance right away if it occurs.
2. Keep Visitors Informed
Do you do a lot of hosting over the summer? Whether you’re planning parties or simply have family coming to visit, let your guests know about best practices for septic systems.
3. Landscape Appropriately
Summer means landscaping, which means it’s more important than ever to remember where your septic system pipes are located. Accidentally damaging part of your system will mean an emergency call to your local septic service company.
