A septic system is a great alternative for a property that does not have a sewer connection. However, proper system maintenance is essential for keeping your property safe and for saving money on expensive repairs. At High Country Vac Services, we provide professional septic service in Calgary and other areas for residential and commercial clients. Here's why you should always hire trained, licensed, and experienced professionals for your septic services.
The Importance of Regular Septic System Maintenance If a septic system is not regularly maintained by having the tank pumped out, the screens cleaned, and the operations checked, it could lead to a messy and hazardous sewage backup. A good rule of thumb is to have your septic tank pumped out at least once a year if your household has two or more people and at least once every two years if less. Why Septic System Maintenance Should Be Left Up to the Professionals Septic system maintenance is not something that home or business owners should do on their own. There are five main reasons why septic services in Calgary should only be carried out by certified professionals. 1.Convenience: Septic tank maintenance and cleaning is difficult, messy work. It is not a job most people can handle on their own. 2.Health: Your septic tank holds dangerous and toxic waste that needs to be handled and transported properly. A reliable septic company will have the right tools for the job. 3.Safety: Septic tank maintenance also comes with safety risks such as cave-ins and contact with buried utilities. Trained and qualified professionals know how to mitigate such risks and carry out maintenance in a safe manner. 4.Time and money: Maintaining your septic system yourself would require specialized and expensive equipment as well as a great deal of time spent learning how to do it right. Without the right equipment and the right training, you risk making small problems worse. 5.Advice: A septic professional will not only clean your tank but give you valuable advice on how to keep your septic system working smoothly.
