Septic Tank Maintenance

If you’re using a septic tank, you should require maintenance to ensure that it is working efficiently and is not damaged.

Maintaining, Cleaning and Repairing a Septic Tank

Maintenance of your septic tank requires a quality professional service. We have the experience and knowledge to properly maintain your septic tank, making sure that the pipes are unblocked and remain this way. Maintaining a septic tank yourself is dangerous, which is why we use excellent equipment when providing this service.

Problems that occur with septic tanks, such as an overfilled tank, odour and roots entering the pipes, can be avoided through regular maintenance. It is recommended that your tank is checked at least once every 12 months for a family of 4.

How Often Should The Septic Tank Be Checked?

Manufactures of the tanks often provide guidelines with information on when the tanks should be checked. However, it is recommended that a family of four should require septic tank maintenance at least once every 12 months.

How Can You Help Maintain Your Tank

Here are some ways you can help your tank work properly:

  • Ensure taps and pipes are not leaking
  • Fill your dishwasher before using it
  • Do not dispose of products such as engine oil or varnish through your septic tank
  • Do not dispose of products such as nappies or feminine hygiene products which block the pipes easily

    review rating 5  Spoke to Jon at Maintain prior to our house purchase as a house surveyor's report does not give sufficient information. Could not fault the service. Video's of all the drains. a map of their location and description of condition which is incredibly useful for future plans. He arranged everything which was appreciated as we are (were) not local and the report was with us the next day. Like the electrician who inspected the electrical installation; both worth every penny of their fees prior to a house purchase.
