When you start ignoring cleaning, maintenance, and repair, your septic tank gets very messy very fast. Cleanliness isn’t the first thing that springs to mind when you think of a septic tank, but trust us, there’s a big difference between a “clean” septic tank and a dirty one.

Left unchecked, your septic tank starts to underperform and malfunction. This leads to all sorts of problems. For example:

Damage to Your Tank, Piping and More

As your septic tank is used, sludge and debris will naturally build up. This is one reason why you need to clean your tank. Otherwise, this build up will begin to clog pipes and drains, causing damage to your septic your system.

Water backs up, pipes crack and burst, and things become a big, expensive mess.

Polluting Water and Local Environment

Your septic tank exists not only to remove waste from your establishment, but to filter it so that you aren’t pumping harmful and unsanitary materials into the world. When septic tanks get dirty and overloaded, harmful materials begin to seep into the water supplies and soil around it, causing damage while posing a serious health threat to animals and people.

It can also destroy plant life, upsetting the balance of your local eco-system.

Health Hazard

Waste is a breeding ground for disease. Sickness quickly spreads when things are left unclean. Contaminates that escape from a septic tank can cause diseases such as stomach viruses, dysentery, hepatitis, typhoid fever, and worse.

Without proper septic management, you can put a lot of people’s health at risk.
