The Challenges of Homes with Septic Systems

Posted on: November 10th, 2014 by admin No Comments

Homeowners with houses that use septic systems face distinctive challenges. If your house has a septic system, you might be only too familiar with the following scenario. You walk across your yard, approach the area near your septic field bed, and you notice a bad smell. Or perhaps there’s some discolored liquid on the ground even though it hasn’t rained in awhile. If you’ve ever had this experience, you know that it represents not only a health hazard that’s lurking in your very own yard, but it could also result in the health department visiting your property and possibly even issuing you an expensive citation. These symptoms are the effects of a septic tank that has been neglected, or a septic system that has failed to receive regular maintenance.

For homeowners with septic systems, a comprehensive clean-out of an overworked septic system can be devastating. The costs involved with the initial clean-up, much less any steps a company would have to take to remove or replace a septic tank, can wreck havoc on your well-being, your mental health, and your wallet. Even after the clean-up or replacement of an overused septic system has taken place, there can also exist the additional cost of repairing the damage done to your yard or property in a cosmetic sense. Sometimes homeowners in this situation need to re-grade their yards, re-seed the lost grass, and even install new landscaping or other related components.

All of these hassles can be avoided if a homeowner will simply schedule regular or annual maintenance visits by a respectable and honest septic system company. Once or twice a year, a septic tank needs to be pumped out and examined. In the same way that people need to take care of their health and schedule regular visits to dentists and doctors, a septic tank needs the same type of examination and maintenance.
