A septic tank should be cleaned every one to three years to be sure it stays in proper working order.
The size of your septic tank will determine how often it should be cleaned.
Septic tanks always breed bacteria. You should never substitute cleaning the tank for a product that you add to the tank to reduce bacteria. In the long run, these products are not effective.
Prevention is the best method when it comes to taking care of your septic tank.
Never put grease into your septic tank. Not only will grease mess up the septic tank, but it can also cause the sewer pipes to become clogged.
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions regarding the care of your septic tank. If any problems arise, it’s not a do-it-yourself project.
Hire a professional plumber handle the problem.
