Jamestown Septic Pumping
We all know that proper care and maintenance is the best way to help think last and run efficiently for as long as possible. The same idea applies for your septic tank. Septic pumping is a great way to create longevity for your system and make sure that there is never a back-up that leads to a big big mess. The best way to get the problematic matter out of your system is through pumping it out and NOT having it overflow and come out the wrong holes! The team here at Jamestown Septic understands the importance of pumping your system and has all the experience necessary.
Why Pumping Is Important
Sometimes septic pumping gets mixed up with septic cleaning. They are different matter of fact! Septic pumping is the process of pumping out the liquid and some of the floating materials that can be a sludge type consistency. This process is important in helping prevent an overflow episode from happening inside of your property. Pumping is necessary to maintain an effective system and should be done on a regular basis. If not the system can fail and that creates a much bigger issue. To make sure your system is pumped correctly, or to get on a regular pumping schedule, call us now at 701-394-3799.
The Potential Outcomes If Septic Is Not Pumped
Like we mentioned above, if a system is not pumped regularly the sludge and solid matter will build up more and more and eventually making the water level rise too high and cause an overflow of the system that can make a huge mess! If overflow does not happen, the sludge can take over the pipes and leave the system unable to operate normally. This can impact the draining system and can cause bad odors to be emitted from the system. If the system becomes too clogged it can lead to needing to replace the drain field, or many different pipes, or a majority of the whole septic system.
Staying On Top Of Things
If you notice that your system is not working at the rate that it usually would, or things are not draining properly, or your toilet is not flushing like it used to, you might want to look into getting your septic pumped. It is standard practice to have your septic tank pumped every 3 - 5 years. This can obviously be different for different sized tanks and different usage rates, but a good rule of thumb. Our team is diligent about the sanitation of your septic as well as the process when pumping or any other services that we are completing. We make sure that the waste that is pumped is handled safely and with the right precautions to avoid air pathogens. Fill out a quote form above and let us know what is going on!
