Proper Septic Tank Cleaning and Care

As an increasing percentage of the population moves into cities and those cities continue to grow, so do their sewer systems. However, according to a recent study approximately a quarter of all people in North America still live in areas where septic tanks are the norm. These areas include the suburbs, small towns and other rural areas in which our Markham plumbers frequently work.

In the vast majority of cases, a well-designed and maintained septic tank can last as long as 50 years before needing to be replaced. Unfortunately, many tanks require early replacement due to homeowners who are not properly educated in the maintenance of their system. For the most part, this isn’t the homeowners fault as they are either give inaccurate information by subpar Markham plumbers or simply not given any information at all.

That’s where this post comes in; we’re going to finally give you the information you need.

Obviously, these few pointers do not cover everything you could ever need to know about your septic system, but they do cover the most common questions we hear as Markham plumbers. As always, if you have further questions, please feel free to call us or leave a comment here.
