Here are 3 Tips for Preventative Maintenance

One of the most important messages we can communicate to business owners is that you need preventative maintenance. I know, I know… you have heard it all before and so many expenses are competing for your hard-earned dollars. You may feel that invisible plumbing issues and future emergencies that MIGHT happen are not really a priority. But trust us when we tell you to change your way of thinking before it’s too late. To help you out, here are 3 easy ways to incorporate preventative maintenance into your business plan.

Routine Pump Service
Solid waste builds up over time, and must be removed or your system will clog or even suffer damage. We get a lot of emergency calls from folks who didn’t see the value in this basic requirement, and end up wasting a lot of time and money trying to remedy the situation.

Use Bacterial Additives
Your septic system uses bacteria to break down waste and ensure effluent is filtered properly. However, certain chemicals (especially in cleaning products) often enter your septic tank and kill this beneficial bacteria. To replenish the lost bacterial, we recommend an additive like Wind River Environmental Septic System Treatment to keep your system functioning as it should.

Install and Clean a Filter
A septic filter attaches to the outlet of your septic tank and stops solid particles from entering the leach field. This is a great way to stop clogs and damage to your leach field. Wind River carries a variety of filters, and it’s simple for a technician to fit one to your septic system. During your regular pump service, our technician will clean the filter as well.

Enjoy Trouble-Free Septic Facilities
When you realize preventative maintenance is much simpler and cost-efficient than a septic emergency, wastewater management becomes pretty simple. Take measures to integrate these 3 things into your business, and you’ll notice a dramatic difference in the performance of your septic system.
