Septic Tank MaintenanceWhether you’re a septic veteran or you’re entirely new to the world of septic, you probably already realize that taking good care of your septic tank is a must. However, if you don’t quite know where to start, we’re here to help. At American Waste Septic, we provide a number of septic tank maintenance services in the Greenville, South Carolina area and are dedicated to your complete satisfaction.

One of the main septic tank maintenance tasks you need to do on a regular basis is get your septic tank pumped out and cleaned. Because this is a dirty job that you likely don’t want to do on your own, we can take care of it for you and inspect your tank for other issues while we’re at it. Making septic pumping a priority can preserve your septic system’s longevity and enhance its efficiency.

Why is Regular Septic Tank Maintenance Important?

To best understand why regular septic tank maintenance is important, you must first understand what is involved. When you call us at American Waste Septic for this service, we thoroughly assess your entire septic system, not just the septic tank itself. We are looking for ways your system is inefficient, as well as its potential to fail or need costly repairs. The goal is to extend the life of the septic tank, drain field, and other components.

In addition to avoiding costly repairs or premature failure, our septic tank maintenance ensures that your system is operating within safe parameters regarding effective filtering of effluent. Just because you don’t have a sewage backup, that doesn’t mean your system couldn’t be permitting contamination of the soil and groundwater. If your Greenville, South Carolina home’s water source is a well on the property, this could prove a disastrous situation. Your neighbors’ wells could also be affected. If your children and pets play in your yard near the drain field, you want to know that they won’t be picking up bacteria and other microorganisms.

Finally, since septic tank maintenance also assesses the level of waste in the tank and we’ll pump it out at that time, you never have to worry about it getting filled beyond capacity. It can be very inconvenient, as well as embarrassing, for a backup to occur when you have overnight guests putting extra strain on your septic system. If you haven’t had septic tank maintenance performed or scheduled any services in the past two years, we recommend reaching out to us at your earliest convenience.

Although our septic tank maintenance services are designed to keep your septic system in good shape, there are several things you can do to keep your system up and running. These include the following:

  • Let us come and inspect your septic tank at least once a year.
  • Never let grease, fats, or oils go down your drains.
  • Practice water conservation at home.
