You don’t have to be a septic professional to understand the dangers of human waste. Septic systems are intricately designed to treat wastewater in a multi-step process because such waste carries harmful bacteria and pathogens that threaten human health and the environment. Septic pumping, a periodic and necessary service that removes solid waste from the tank, can provide protection in several ways.
- Backup Prevention- As sludge builds up in your septic tank, the risk of sewage backups increases. Your system should alert you when the tank’s water level gets too high, but you should also know when your system is due for septic pumping by referencing its maintenance schedule. Removing the solid waste keeps it from backing up into your home or business, which would have disastrous consequences for your health and property.
- Environmental Protection- Human waste isn’t just harmful to humans. It also pollutes the environment and is extremely detrimental to local plant life, wildlife, and bodies of water. To protect the ecosystem, don’t neglect septic pumping. Pumping keeps your system functioning properly and prevents waste from seeping into groundwater or causing other environmental hazards.
- Regulatory Compliance- Septic pumping may be necessary to remain in compliance with state or local laws. Failing to maintain your septic system could subject you to fines or other consequences. To stay out of trouble and do right by your community, schedule septic pumping at the appropriate times.
