With winter well on its way, fall is the perfect time of the year to prepare your septic system for the cold weather ahead.
Winter, as well as the cold weather it brings, can be hard on your septic system. Although the fall is the perfect time of the year to carve pumpkins and sip on chai tea lattes, it’s also the perfect time of the year to maintain your septic system. Luckily, with the experts that created the Septic Genie on your side, it’s easy to keep your septic system running strong. If you haven’t already, check out our last blog to learn about the maintenance tips we’ve already covered. Here are the last couple of things you should do to maintain your septic system this fall:
#5. Repair any drips and leaks.
Before the temperature really takes a dive, it’s always a good idea to thoroughly inspect your home for any signs of dripping or leaking plumbing fixtures. While dripping water may not seem like a big deal, minuscule trickles of water can flow into your pipes and freeze very easily. This issue can quickly turn into a pipe that is completely frozen-over and requires professional attention.
#6. Get your septic system inspected.
Do you want to avoid any nasty surprises over the winter? If so, your best bet is to get your septic system inspected by a professional. This will alert you to any small repairs that need to be made before winter comes. It’s smart to get your septic system inspected every year, but if you smell or see sewage, it is important to schedule an inspection as soon as you can.
