Septic Systems Maintenance

Why Maintain Your System?

There are three reasons why septic system maintenance is important to you and your community.

1.The first is money. The minimal cost and effort required to maintain your system can save you or delay future expenditures that have ranged from $10,000 to $100,000 for replacement systems.

2.The second and most important reason is the health of your family and community. Inadequately treated wastewater can pose significant human health risks and can contaminate wells, ground water and surface water resources.

3.The third reason to maintain your system is to prevent the decline of property values in your community. To fully appreciate the value of maintenance, however, it is important to first understand how your system works.
