How Long Does A Septic System Last?
Septic systems are designed to provide long term service to homes, they can last more than fifty years at a time. However, they do require proper maintenance. Systems that fail or run into problems usually do so because they have not been serviced properly. One of the most common problems that plagues septic systems is tree roots growing through the pipe, this leads to leaks or blockages, and can often be detected by an unpleasant smell or wet area in the yard.
What Maintenance Services Does A Septic Tank Need?
Powell’s offers full maintenance services to various types of septic tank systems in Winchester, including pumping and cleaning services. It is important that septic systems be cleaned at least once every three to five years in order to prevent build-up and blockages from debris inside the tank.
