No homeowner wants to wake up one morning to discover their yard transformed into a foul-smelling swamp. Even worse is the possibility of a sewage backup in your home. Not only is it likely to make your neighbors (and you) more than a little unhappy, it goes without saying that overloading your septic system involves messy and expensive cleanup.
Regular maintenance is key!
To avoid the embarrassment and expense, it’s best to have your system pumped on a regular basis. The average family (3 – 4 people) should have their septic system pumped every one to three years to avoid an overload. Pumping is a tough job, but someone has to do it! And that’s where we come in.
