Have you recently purchased a home that has a septic tank? Are you confused about what you need to do to ensure that a septic tank system continues to function correctly for as long as possible? A septic tank system isn't necessarily all that different than one that is hooked up to a city sewer line, but there are some differences that you need to know about. As long as you keep these things in mind, your septic tank should continue functioning for some time to come.
When we first purchased our home in the mountains, I had no idea what I was up against. Whenever we would visit, I was surprised to see and smell the way that the property had changed. I realized that the vacation home always smelled like sewage, and it was really worrisome. I knew that I needed to do something to make things right, so I started looking into the plumbing system. I discovered that we had a septic tank, and that it needed to be pumped. This blog is all about troubleshooting septic system problems so that you can keep your place clean and sanitary.
