Preventative maintenance on your septic tank is key. Your septic tank should be maintained and emptied on a yearly basis. One of the major components of a septic tank is the soakaway. The soakaway is a cavity in which waste goes and eventually soaks into the ground. Neglect of your soakaway can cause a great deal of problems. Here are some common indicators that your soakaway may need to be cleaned or emptied:
Your toilet keeps overflowing
Gurgling sounds coming from your drains
Foul smells coming from drains
Constant back-up in the shower or bathtub or sink
The air may smell rancid, and you can see waste forming on your property
Divots are forming in the soil near your septic tank or the soakaway drain
Many other problems can arise without proper care and maintenance of your septic tank. Septic tank overflow, binding of sodium in your soil and deterioration can be expensive to correct. It is recommended to have your septic tank pumped every year but depending on the size of your household, tank size and average total waste that is created, you may be able to stave off pumping to every three years.
At Order a Plumber, we are very thorough when performing septic tank maintenance. We will inspect for leaks and examine the sludge and scum layers in your septic tank to determine how often you should be pumping out. We will provide you with a full-service report once your maintenance is completed.
Efficiency in your water usage will also help keep your septic tank in good shape. The less water that enters your septic system, the better it will operate. Not only is conserving water good for your septic tank, but it’s also eco-friendly too. Here are some things you can do to save water and save your septic tank from overflow and damage:
Install high-efficiency toilets in all bathrooms
Install high-efficiency showerheads and faucet aerators
Select the proper load size on your washing machine. If you do not have this option, wash larger loads.
Don’t wash all of your laundry in one day. Spread out over the course of the week.

When we had a septic tank overflow, my husband and I immediately called Order a Plumber. We had used them in the past when we added a new bathroom to our home. Since we were so impressed with the previous job they did, we didn’t hesitate to have them take care of our problem. They immediately came to our home fixed the issue. We will always trust Order a Plumber to take care of all our plumbing needs and always recommend their services to our friends and family.
