Prevent Septic Pump RepairHaving company over to stay at your home can be fun, enjoyable, and chaotic all at the same time. When you have a large group of friends or family members over to stay, you may notice that the influx of water usage wreaks havoc on your septic system. To avoid septic pump repair when you have company follow these tips.

  • Call a septic pump repair professional over to your house if the septic alarm goes off or limit the amount of water you use the next day to help your system catch up with the increased amount of waste being processed through the system.
  • Large groups of people are synonymous with large amounts of food preparation and consumption. Because of the increased amount of food preparation, you may notice that your sinks start to back up. If this happens, do not use a liquid drain cleaner to clear up the clog. Instead, use a plunger to clear the drain of the clog or call a septic professional.
  • You may also notice that your toilets start to clog up as well as your sinks due to the increased number of people staying in your home. Call your septic system company if you notice that the toilets start to back up and won’t work normally even after flushing and plunging the toilet multiple times.
  • Try to avoid doing laundry while your company is staying with you. If one of your guests needs to do some wash, have them space out the loads over the course of the week instead of doing it all in one day.

By following these few tips for when you have company, you can avoid septic pump repair and other problems with your septic system.
