Fix home drainage system to avoid septic tank pumping

Septic tank pumping results from the need to check the levels of septage in the septic tank. This tank receives the waste from the septic system which feeds off the drainage system in the house. Now if the drainage system in the house were well taken care of and generally well maintained, there would be little need to regularly perform septic tank pumping.

The drains in the home are the starting point for ensuring a healthy septic system, especially because these are so much easier to pick up faults on. If there happens to be a blockage in the toilet, this will inevitably affect the septic system, so by ensuring that the drains in the house are well kept and functioning well, and also that the practises in the home are conducive to maintaining the good health of the house drains, the septic system will avoid being overburdened by the clogging, build up, as well as excess sludge and scum. And this is not only an issue for the toilet but every part of the home that is connected to a drainage system which ultimately feeds into the septic tank.

Getting septic tank pumping done will be far costlier than just maintaining the drainage system at the first point of contact. And unless one doesn’t mind the costs involved in the former, it’s best to take care of the latter.
