Most malfunctions are due to lack of pumping that clears waste. Don’t wait for a small problem to get bigger and turn into an expensive major repair or complete system breakdown. Sign up for our convenient maintenance program to ensure your septic tank is pumped regularly.
Signs that your septic tank needs pumping include:
Is the Waste in Your Septic Tank Over the Limit?
The average waste tank on a typical septic system can hold approximately 400 to 500 gallons. Septic tanks require regular annual inspection and pumping for moderate use and more frequent maintenance for larger homes or buildings with higher usage rates. The qualified specialists at Patterson Specialty Services provide efficient and reliable tank pumping services that keep your system running smoothly.
If you are unsure when the septic system on your property was last pumped, contact Patterson Specialty Services for an assessment to avoid potential health and water access problems. Even though the average septic tank has a large capacity, sludge build-up will eventually reach its limit and if the tank is not pumped properly, system failure will occur and result in expensive repairs and health hazards.
Septic Tank Riser Installs and Lid.
Before we list the benefits, let’s clarify what exactly a septic tank riser is. Risers are typically made from either plastic or concrete. They are large round pipes fitted over the septic tank clean-out opening and are long enough to extend the clean-out opening to the ground level. The benefits then are:
The last benefit may seem a bit counter-intuitive. Why would you want a visual reminder of your septic system? Well, routine septic system maintenance prevents premature septic system failure. With a septic tank riser, you’ll not only know the location of your septic system you’ll have a visual reminder to schedule your system to be pumped at least every 2 to 3 years. That being said, the septic tank risers that we install are designed to blend with their surroundings. Though it will serve as an effective visual reminder, it will not be an eyesore.
How Much a Septic Tank Riser Costs?
Your septic system is one of the most important mechanical systems in your home. With a one-time installation fee, a septic tank riser will protect your septic system for years to come. The quick access for maintenance and pumping will almost immediately provide a return on your investment. You can also say goodbye to costly and unsightly digs at maintenance time.
