While some components of your septic tank might break down no matter what you do, there are some things you can do to avoid having lots of repairs.

  • Get Regular Inspections- Our septic tank inspectors at William Dustin Septic can find issues with your septic tank before they turn into expensive problems. By fixing the issues before they get too big, you can avoid expensive septic tank repairs while keeping your septic tank working properly.
  • Conserve Water- If you use tons of water, you will put a strain on your system. That means your system will be more likely to wear out, which will lead to an expensive septic tank repair. Install low flow fixtures and make a habit of only using water when you need it. This will extend the life of your system and help you avoid repairs.
  • Pump Your System- At William Dustin Septic, we can put you on a pumping schedule in order to keep your septic tank free of excessive sludge. When sludge doesn’t make it into your pipes and your drain field, you can avoid some repairs. Talk to a technician on our team to find out how often your tank should be pumped.
