Preventative septic system maintenance will help you to catch costly and hazardous problems with your septic tank or drain field before you have an emergency. Regularly scheduled maintenance with a professional septic system company is beneficial in a number of ways, including:
Prevent Septic Emergencies: Septic Medic will inspect sludge levels, look for any liquid waste or cracks around the lid or in the drain field, and address anything that could cause a pump problem in the future so that we can address it quickly.
Prevent Messy Septic System Backups: Keep your property’s water supply and groundwater free of dangerous pollutants.
Prevent Unnecessary Septic Tank Replacement Costs: Outlet baffles, root removal, septic tank wall repairs, leach field rejuvenation, leaking or cracked pipes – Avoid expensive septic system replacement and installation costs!
For most families, Septic Medic recommends that you have your septic tank pumped once every 3-5 years. If there is more water used at your home than in a typical household, you will need to have your septic pumped more frequently. Waiting too long clean out your septic system can cause damage and result in costly repairs and, in some cases, replacement of major components. Pumping your septic system yourself is not something you should do on your own – professional septic companies know how to pump the tank safely and can inspect the leach field for pollutants and other concerns.
Regular Septic System Maintenance can save you money and prevent hazardous problems with your septic system before they occur.

Why Is Your Septic Alarm Going Off?
Your septic system alarm will go off when the water level in your septic tank is too high or too low. When the wastewater layers of your septic tank are not balanced properly your system will not operate efficiently.
What Causes a Septic Alarm to Go Off?
There are a number of reasons why you may experience a high-water event or lose water and cause your septic alarm to go off.
1. Faulty Septic System Components – When your septic tank is not able to remove excess water or process your disposed waste the water level will rise. Leaks in your septic tank can cause ground water to enter the tank and clogged pipes can disrupt the levels of water in your septic tank. It is recommended to have your septic system inspected by a professional to assess if you need to repair or replace a variety of septic system components.
2. Heavy Rain – Your septic tank can overflow during heavy rain if groundwater enters your septic system
3. Overuse of the Septic System – Your septic alarm may go off if you are using more water than you normally do.
