Proper maintenance of your septic system is extremely important. You don’t want to ignore this. As a general rule, your septic system should be pumped every five years. And you want to make sure that the company you use is professional and licensed. The Lyttle Companies can meet that need. Lyttle’s professionals bring together experience from all aspects of private, commercial, industrial and municipal utility work.
The EPA says there are four things you can do to protect and maintain your septic system.
- Regularly inspect your system and pump your tank as necessary.
- Use water efficiently.
- Don’t dispose of household hazardous wastes in sinks or toilets.
- Care for your drainfield.
A properly designed, constructed and maintained septic system can provide long-term and efficient treatment of your household wastewater. Failure to maintain your septic system can lead to the nightmare of system failure, and an expensive, nasty and smelly mess. It could cost you thousands of dollars to clean up and replace your system. In addition if your system malfunctions, it could contaminate groundwater that often could be a source of drinking water. And when you go to sell your home, you have to make sure your septic system is in good working order.
While the EPA provides a helpful guide to maintaining your septic system, most homeowners just aren’t that industrious or skilled to do that kind of work. That’s were a company like Stamie Lyttle can be your best friend.
