Think Spring-Think Septic Maintenance

The septic system may easily be the most overlooked infrastructure in the home. Maintenance of your septic system can have a significant impact on how well it works and how long it lasts.

Three main reasons why maintenance is so important:

PROTECTING YOUR HEALTH The health of your family, and the environment. Household wastewater is loaded with disease-causing bacteria and viruses, as well as, high levels of nitrogen and phosphorus. When onsite systems fail, inadequately treated household wastewater is released into the environment. Contact with untreated waste can pose a significant health risk.

SYSTEMS COST Malfunctioning onsite systems are expensive to repair or replace, and ignoring routine maintenance is a common cause of system failure. The minimal amount of preventative maintenance that onsite systems require costs very little in comparison to the cost of a new system.

PROPERTY VALUE A malfunctioning or unusable septic system can cause property values to decline. It can also make it difficult to sell the property.
