Maintenance and Inspections

Septic tanks have made life easier and more comfortable for so many people. It has meant that people have been able to use water systems in their homes, without needing to rely on the public supply. But having a septic tank system installed on your property is a responsibility. You need to be making sure that it is working in a smooth manner, not causing any environmental issues and continuing to serve you as it did, on the day it was installed.

Some professional help is going to allow you to identify all of these things, through the proper inspection and maintenance. These things are necessary to the ongoing functionality of your system so, simply cannot be skipped. For the same reason, it is in your best interests to work with your best local team, who you will find in Guelphs Best Septic Tank Pumping.


Whilst it is not always easy to be able to find damage or water levels in your tank alone, a professional would be able to tell you for sure. Through expert opinion, you will be able to find out exactly where and what needs attention, within the system. When we carry out your inspection, we make sure that external factors aren’t causing concern either.

For example, we will ensure that a manageable amount of rainwater reaches your septic field, with your gutters and roof directing the rest, away from it. It is important to have all the up-to-date information about your tank, so you can make smart decisions towards its ongoing functionality. We recommend having this service carried out even more regularly than pumping, and of course, we will be glad to provide it.

Assessing Material Levels

Whilst you should have your tank emptied when it reaches capacity, you should be making sure that material levels don’t build up too much. No matter the amount of water in the tank, if there is a layer too close too the outlet, then you will be needing a pump anyways. So, when we come to inspect and maintain your tank, we will identify how high these levels are. And, if necessary, we will organize a pumping job.

Drain Cleaning

It may seem simple and easy to forget, but having your drainage system checked and cleaned can be essential to the full working order of your septic tank. Any clogged system is going to back up and that is going to lead to problems, elsewhere in the system. So, you need to be having these serviced on a regular basis. We will be more than glad to supply with that service and will make sure that nothing bad is left to occur, in your septic works.

Advice on Better Use

There could be so many ways you could improve your experience with a septic tank. From refraining from using the garbage disposal to properly planting any trees or plants, there are countless things to think about. It is easy to miss something but if you would like, our inspector will be able to give you advice and recommendations on how to improve your usage habits.
