Prevent Problems With Your Kelowna Septic System
Homeowners can prevent problems with their septic systems through a variety of simple, proactive measures. The most common way is through water conservation, as this will help with proper functionality of the system. A large quantity of water flowing into the tank in a short time frame will reduce the solids’ settling, as well as disturb the already settled material and push it to enter the drain field. Water conservation can be achieved too by the use of low-flow fixtures, the repair of existing leaks, diversion of the roofs and hoses, drainage away from the septic drain field, etc.
While the time interval of a septic cleaning depends on the inspection’s results, each household’s tank size and level of water usage, such an inspection made by a licensed professional should be performed regularly. This will help each owner catch eventual problems early on and keep solids from accumulating, reaching the outflow and clogging the drain field.
