How to maximize a septic's lifespan
Keeping your septic system in top condition requires minimal maintenance. A key part of any property’s plumbing system is the septic tank. Liquid and solid waste travels through underground pipes. The septic system separates the sewage, leading the liquid waste to a drain field and the solid waste to the septic tank.

Most residential septic tanks reach their capacity and require routine pump-outs between 2-3 years.
