Your septic system should be functioning to peak performance around the clock to prevent leaks and other issues around your home. To achieve this level of performance, professional maintenance from a qualified septic specialist such as Roto-Rooter High Desert is required. In this latest post, we’ll provide our guide to the maintenance of your septic system.

  • Limit what goes into the tank

One of the more important steps for maintaining your septic system is in limiting what goes into your tanks. You should never deposit napkins, wet tissues oils into your septic system through your home equipment. These items can cause significant long-term damage to your septic system and prevent the system from functioning effectively. By simply limiting what you put into the septic tank, you can ensure the tank reaches optimal performance.

  • Minimize impact on the drain field

The drain field is the structure through which your wastewater is filtered. Make sure you don’t park vehicles on the drain field and ensure that any trees or shrubs are planted a significant distance away from the area. Sump pumps should also be installed a distance away to minimize their impact on the drainage process.

  • Have your system inspected

The inspection of your septic system will be critical to its overall performance in the years ahead. Having your septic system inspected by Roto-Rooter can ensure that our team discovers any small changes to your system before these changes begin to impact the wider unit. The equipment should be monitored carefully by professionals and therefore should be inspected at least once per year to ensure optimal functionality.

  • Commit to the pumping process

Septic system pumping is essential to removing the damaging elements from your system. Make sure that you hire a qualified septic pumping company to complete the work as they can help to prevent system failure and eliminate dangerous elements from the equipment from the years ahead.
