In areas that aren’t connected to a public sewer system, homeowners and businesses must rely on an on-lot sewage system, or septic system. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection sets standards for on-lot sewage systems in order to protect public health and the environment. If your home or business has a septic system, Tri-County Water Services can help you comply with PADEP on-lot sewage maintenance requirements.
Why On-Lot Sewage System Maintenance Is So Important
Like other systems that serve a home or business, a septic system needs to be regularly maintained so it can keep functioning properly. It should also be inspected by a qualified professional on a regular basis so that any issues can be caught and addressed early. Routine maintenance and inspections can prevent serious problems, such as sewage leaks, property damage, environmental contamination, and illness.
How Tri-County Can Help with On-Lot Sewage System Maintenance
One of the most important tasks is to have a septic tank pumped on a regular basis. Depending on the size of your tank and the number of people in your family, you might need to have your tank pumped every few years, or you might be able to do it less frequently.
This isn’t something that the average homeowner can do. The professionals at Tri-County Water Services have the equipment and training necessary to pump your septic tank. We can also inspect your system for signs of damage and make any repairs that are needed.
While on site, we’ll check your yard for signs of a problem. When there’s an issue with a septic tank, it often causes an unpleasant odor or makes the ground around the septic tank become spongy. Homeowners might overlook signs of a problem with an on-lot sewage system, but a professional knows what to look for.
