Should You Perform Septic Tank Pumping More Often?

Septic Services LakelandPosted bySeptic Services LakelandMay 19th, 2022

Should You Perform Septic Tank Pumping More Often?
Plenty of septic tank pumping companies out there will give you a ballpark idea of how often you should have the septic tank at your home cleaned out, but since every situation is different, you could need to do it more often. There are several reasons why you might need or want to have it done annually, for example, instead of the typical 3-to-5-year window that most advise. Here are some examples:

•Luxury home- If you have a great deal of money invested in your home, the last thing you want is a septic backup ruining your flooring and other belongings. You can gain peace of mind with annual septic tank pumping, as you’ll greatly reduce the likelihood that the tank ever gets completely full. In addition, an inspection would also be done so you’ll find out about any other issues before they can become problematic.

•Heavy use- There are several scenarios in which your septic tank could be getting more use than is typical. For example, you could have frequent overnight guests, a large family, a home-based business, or a mother-in-law apartment with both you and your tenant using the same septic system.

•Older system- If your septic system is nearing the end of its functional life, it may not be able to handle as much waste as it used to, making more frequent septic tank pumping necessary until you can get around to having the system replaced.

If you would like assistance in determining the best frequency for septic tank pumping for your Lakeland, Florida area home, reach out to us at Southeastern Septic LLC. We are happy to schedule an inspection and get you set up on the best service schedule for your situation.

What You Need to Know About Septic Systems as a First-Time Home Buyer

Septic Services LakelandPosted bySeptic Services LakelandMay 19th, 2022

What You Need to Know About Septic Systems as a First-Time Home Buyer
When you are buying your first home, there are more things you don’t know about than things you do. Your real estate agent will be a valuable resource for guiding you through the process of selecting a home, negotiating the price, and arranging for a home inspection before closing. What they might not be able to tell you is what you need to know if the home has a septic system instead of being tied to the municipal sewer system.

The first thing to know is that you should have the septic system inspected by a professional septic company before closing. The typical home inspection only alerts you if there are slow drains, but they won’t open up the septic tank or check the drain field. There can be problems that haven’t yet progressed to a point they are symptomatic. With a full septic inspection, you’ll also know how soon the tank will need to be pumped out and what overall condition the septic system is in.

The next thing to know is what you can and shouldn’t put into the septic system. The same company that performs the inspection can give you valuable information about how to care for the septic system. To give you an idea, however, you want to avoid anything that isn’t biodegradable or that would take an excessive amount of time to decompose. You also want to avoid FOGs (fats, oils, and grease). These will float on the top of the wastewater, and if the amount becomes too thick, it will travel to the drainfield and clog it.

If you would like to learn more about septic systems or schedule an inspection at the house you have under contract in the Lakeland, Florida area, reach out to us at Southeastern Septic LLC. We are your septic specialists and are here to help you move forward with confidence as a first-time home buyer.
