When it comes to maintaining a healthy plumbing system in your home, the one place you may not think to look is outside at the septic tank. Because your plumbing system is directly linked to the septic system, maintaining both systems is the best way to ensure that you have a functional home at all times.
When you think about it, it makes perfect sense that what goes down the drain will eventually find its way outside. From the kitchen sink or toilet, wastewater travels through the plumbing to the wastewater system outside, where it is filtered through the septic tank and drain field and safely back into the ground water.
As a homeowner, if you don’t take care of your plumbing, there is every chance you’ll have to call the plumber to help fix an issue. Likewise, without routine septic tank cleaning, there is every chance you’ll need to call for septic tank services when you least expect it. But, in reverse, caring for the septic tank also helps keep your plumbing in great condition. In the event of a septic backup, raw waste travels back into your home through the plumbing!
While it may be easy to find ways to care for your plumbing, on the ground level, caring for your septic system is also crucial. Routine septic tank cleaning is generally recommended every three to five years and will ensure that you have both a great plumbing system and septic system.
