The best way to avoid a septic tank emergency and promote your tanks efficiency is to have it pumped and cleaned regularly.
Why is Untreated Wastewater a Problem?
Any contact with untreated human waste can pose a significant risk to the public’s health. If untreated effluent enters the groundwater, you and your neighbor’s drinking water can be contaminated. If this sewage reaches nearby bodies of water, the local ecosystem, and recreational swimming areas may be jeopardized. A septic system that is not maintained or malfunctions:
- Is expensive to repair.
- May need to be replaced, costing thousands of dollars.
- Can contaminate groundwater that could be a source of drinking water.
- Can spread infection and disease.
- May expose you to legal liability.
Best Septic Management Practices
If you are like most people, you probably don’t put much thought to what happens when waste goes down your drain. But if you rely on a septic system to treat and dispose of your household wastewater, what you don’t know can hurt you. When a septic system fails, hazardous waste can mix with groundwater, causing dysentery, hepatitis, and typhoid fever. Throughout history, serious outbreaks of these diseases have been caused by contaminated drinking water.
If your septic system is properly designed, constructed and maintained, it can provide a long-term, effective treatment of wastewater. If your septic system isn’t maintained, you might need to replace it, costing you thousands of dollars.
