Septic Maintenance

Why You Should Maintain Your Septic System

Money
Failing or failed septic systems/tanks can be very expensive to repair or replace, with poor maintenance as the common cause. For example, it can cost up to $10,000 to replace a failing or failed septic system with a new one, while it may only cost up to $150 to have a septic system inspected, and only $250 to have it pumped. (prices are approximates only)

Health
Protection of the health of your family, community and environment. When a septic system fails, inadequately treated wastewater is released into the ground and the groundwater. Untreated human waste can also impose significant health risks.

Chemicals that are released through your septic system also have the ability to pollute groundwater resources. It is very important for homeowners to learn what should and should not be disposed of through a septic system. (see do's and don'ts at right)

Economy
Poor or failed septic systems can cause property values to decline. Building permits can be stalled or not issued and/or real estate sales can be delayed for area properties. Failed septic systems can also add to the pollution of rivers, lakes and shorelines.
