As spring approaches, many people begin planning for the warmer weather. Between spring cleaning, planning any vacation days, and enjoying being outdoors more often, it’s common to forget about your septic system. It often goes unnoticed, but its importance to your home is immeasurable. Even if you recognize how essential its role is, do you know if your septic system is operating at peak performance?
If your last septic system service was before the winter, it’s time to make sure the system is operating at its best. If you haven’t been utilizing a septic maintenance plan, now is the best time to start. Not only does it address some immediate issues you’re facing—and even some that you might not have noticed yet—but it protects your system long-term, saving you from costly repairs, downtime, and emergencies.
The first step to prepare for the spring ahead is to schedule an appointment to have your septic tank pumped. Everyone has spent more time at home this past year, meaning that septic tanks are filling faster than usual. If you can’t remember the last time it was pumped, having a technician assess your situation is the best option. They’re also able to create a plan for you to regularly schedule pumpings, so you won’t have to worry about missing your next one.
Another important area to be aware of is the bacteria in your septic tank. Over the winter, cold weather slows down the bacteria that break down solids, making the process less effective. In order to resolve this issue, bacterial additives are a good solution. These additives kickstart your system’s ability to function properly and reduce the buildup that occurs over time, especially during the colder months.
If your system has a filter, spring is the perfect time to clean it. The filter protects your leach field or drain field from solids that could damage it. This is easily done by a septic professional and doesn’t take much time. Damaged leach fields or drain fields cause backup, slow draining, soggy patches of grass, and even bad smells coming from the area near your leach field or drain field.
