If you own a septic tank, it's important that you monitor it regularly to prevent problems in the system. I learned this lesson the hard way a few years ago. I didn't think I needed to do anything to the tank or drainfield, because I assumed that the system would take care of itself. Big mistake. After years of poor maintenance, my septic tank clogged up and caused my entire plumbing system in the house to fail. I finally contacted a septic system contractor. The contractor cleaned my tank and repaired my plumbing. The contractor also educated me on why it's important to maintain a healthy septic system. I now schedule regular maintenance checks of my system and make every effort to keep it clean myself. My blog shows you how to avoid disasters with your septic system. I offer maintenance tips you can use right now. Thanks for visiting.
