The best way to keep your septic system functioning properly is with periodic pumping and cleaning. Pumping your tank not only keeps your septic system healthy, but will also prevent potentially hazardous runoff, sewer line stoppage, and possible raw sewage backing up in your home. Pumping and cleaning is recommended every 3-5 years on ALL septic systems. Even a good system without proper care and attention may become a problem and an unnecessary expense. Tanks should be filled with water after pumping to keep from floating.Davis Septic Services is here to help by providing pumping and repair services for all types of septic systems 7 days a week and 24 hours a day.
