How Does a Septic System Work?
Septic Tank Cleaning
Your septic system is the equivalent of the city sewer system. However, instead of a monthly fee on your water bill, you only pay for cleaning service every 3-5 years. This equals more saving for the home owner in the long run. With that being said, if the septic system is neglected it can lead to very costly repairs. When the collected waste is not removed, it will build up blockages in the pipes connected to house as well as the drain field. With systems that are aerobic the blockages will affect the pump and sprinkler system.
