When it comes to septic pump repair, we hear the same myths about it over and over again. In an effort to get the truth out there about the septic pump repair process, here are some of the common myths we hear and why they aren’t true:
- If your septic system isn’t broken, don’t worry about it—In many cases, the signs that your septic system has fallen into disrepair aren’t very obvious until your system reaches the point of failure. For this reason, you should call us for help with the septic pump repair process if you notice foul odors near your septic tank, if your drains run slower than normal, or if it’s been a while since you last had your tank pumped.
- There’s nothing you can do to keep a septic system from failing—Many people believe that there’s nothing they can do to prevent septic system failure. Although most septic systems are designed to last anywhere from 20 to 25 years, you can help yours last as long as possible by repairing it as soon as issues come up and getting your tank pumped on a regular basis.
Regular septic system pumping is a waste of money—We’ve said it once, and we’ll say it again: septic pumping is one of the best ways to prevent problems with your septic system as a whole. Generally speaking, we recommend having us come and pump out your tank every three to five years.
