Septic Service in Winter Weather

Frozen Pipes
Frozen Pipes
Action Septic Tank Service encourages you to take care of your septic or sewer system during the colder, winter months. Regular maintenance and care will help to keep your system functioning properly. Schedule annual inspections. It is best to have your system inspected before the ground feeezes. Frozen pipes can lead to blockages, breakages, and other septic problems. Have your septic tank pumped or your sewer line cleaned every two years. Stay on a routine maintenance schedule. It is always important to CONSERVE WATER. Excessive water use can overload your system. This negatively affects its ability to treat wastewater, which causes blockages and also risks contaminating nearby lakes, rivers, streams and wells. Water conservation reduces the demand on surface and groundwater resources and saves energy that goes into water treatment and delivery. Prevent fats, oils and grease (FOG), pesticides, paints, paint thinners, disinfectants, poisons, household cleaners, varnishes, coffee grounds, sanitary products, paper towels, plastics, kitty litter, diapers, and dental floss from going down your drains. This will help to keep your lines clear and reduce the amount of sewage back-ups. Be proactive! For more septic information and service, please visit www.actionseptictankservice.com.
