There are a lot of reasons septic cleaning is vital. For example, it keeps nearby water sources clean and free of contaminants, which keeps the people in your community safe and healthy. Septic cleaning is also important because it keeps your septic system functioning longer and saves money that you would otherwise need to spend on septic repair or replacement. With these benefits in mind, septic cleaning is a no-brainer. Keep reading to learn how the septic cleaning process works.
The first thing the septic professional will do is locate the septic tank. If you already know where the tank is, this step will be easy. If you don’t, the technician will need to find it. Then, they will remove the cover and inspect the liquid levels to help identify any issues before they start pumping. When it’s time to pump the septic tank, they will insert a hose to remove the sludge and solids that have collected on the bottom. They may also use a long scraping tool to remove the solids if the pump proves to be insufficient. Next, the solid waste is transferred to a vacuum truck, which will take the waste to a designated location far away from the property. Lastly, the technician will clean the tank and filters by rinsing them with fresh water.
