Potential Pitfalls When You Don’t Schedule Septic Tank Pumping
Whether you have lived in your home a long time or you are a first-time home buyer, having a home with a septic system can be convenient, but it comes with some added responsibility. At William Dustin Septic, we often find ourselves completing emergency septic services for property owners who could have prevented their emergency with the proper precautions, but they left routine maintenance tasks unattended. While the general rule of thumb is that you should schedule septic tank pumping every three to five years, there are several repercussions if you forget or avoid having us complete this service in a timely manner.

  1. Repairs – The first major issue that usually comes up when septic tank pumping is left on the backburner is repairs – and not just repairs of the septic tank alone. While your septic tank can certainly sustain damage, you may also find that your pump, drain field, and your home’s plumbing need repairs, too.
  2. Replacement – Unfortunately, the damage caused by missed septic tank pumping appointments doesn’t always end with repairs. It’s possible that you may need to replace part or all of your septic system depending upon how extensive the damage is.
  3. Expense – Ultimately, that leads to a big expense for something that could have been prevented with a cost-effective solution. Scheduling routine septic tank pumping will help you avoid these potential problems!

The good news is that at William Dustin Septic, we can provide the septic tank pumping services you need, as well as provide repairs and replacement should you find yourself in a septic system predicament. Our most important piece of advice, however, is don’t wait! Call today to schedule your appointment.
