When dealing with your wastewater system, it's essential that you hire a company that knows what they are doing to ensure your system is working the way it should. Here's what you need to know about septic services in New Braunfels, including what they entail, the benefits and risks, and how Aerobic Services of South Texas can help.
What Does Professional Septic Services Entail?
Professional services for your septic system can include both septic pumping and septic cleaning. Both are essential for a properly functioning tank and can save you from costly repairs and maintenance. While they may seem similar, there are specific considerations for determining which is the more appropriate service.
When waste enters your septic tank, the solids sink to the bottom while the liquids are treated and go to the drain field. Bacteria in the tank break down the solid waste, but over time these solids can accumulate, and when levels become too high, they can clog the drain field pipes and back up into the toilets in your home. Scheduled pumping of your septic tank every three to five years removes solid waste and extends the tank's lifespan. A professional service technician can help you determine the appropriate schedule for septic pumping on your property.
When septic pumping is neglected, the solid waste can become unmanageable, and you may require septic cleaning instead. This process flushes the system to break down solids before removing both liquid and solid waste from the tank with a high-powered vacuum. This service is best used when moving into a property with unknown maintenance.
The Pros Of Professional Septic Services
It's easy to forget about the maintenance of your septic system when things are going well. The problem is that when septic issues arise, they can cause major issues and be challenging to address. Instead of waiting for disaster, ongoing septic services can keep your system running well with minimal maintenance and affordable costs. With professional services, you know you are handling issues as they arise and keeping systems well maintained.
The Cons Of Professional Septic Services
Of course, there are drawbacks to any service. It can be difficult for homeowners to tell when a service is needed for their septic system; there's also the expense and the inconvenience of scheduling services. And professional services are not a magic bullet. Even with appropriate maintenance, there are still limits to what your system can handle, and you need to be mindful of not putting many things down the drain. Finally, not all professional services are equal, and it's essential that you find a company that you can trust.
