Septic Pumping Integral to Septic Maintenance

septic tank pumping Septic Preservation Services are available to do the septic maintenance that everyone would rather took care of itself but unfortunately needs to be done and arranged.

Septic Pumping is an important part of your septic system maintenance. If you do not have this done your system will get clogged and full and when that happens it will cease to work efficiently and eventually fail. As you can probably imagine a failed septic system is not a pretty sight (or smell) and is often a very expensive thing to fix.

This can be avoided if you not only have your septic system pumped regularly but also use a through and reputable company to do so. The frequency that your septic system should be pumped varies on a variety of factors including the size of your system and the amount it is used, however, it is recommended that it is pumped every 3-5 years.  A properly maintained septic system should only be pumped every 2-5 years, as needed, to avoid removing the “good” bacteria and keep the system running smoothly. Today we have septic pumping scheduled in Attleboro, Norton, Seekonk, Fall River, Freetown, Lakeville, and Acushnet, MA.  If it has been over three years since your septic tank had a pump out, please contact us for an evaluation and to arrange septic pumping if necessary.  You can reach us at 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
