Maintenance of your Septic System

Posted on: July 18th, 2016 by admin
With your septic system it’s important to keep a good maintenance schedule. This can prevent your septic system from becoming sluggish and not functioning properly. Remember good maintenance can prevent you from having to deal with large costly repairs down the road.

Here are a couple of maintenance tasks that we perform and why they are important for your system!


  • Visual and odour examination. This is performed on all components of your system, you need to know that everything is working correctly. Not just one area.
  • Removal and cleaning of effluent filter.  There need to be cleaned regularly to prevent backups in your home.
  • Cleaning and replacing of air filters in lift station or compressors. Air compressor filters need to be replaced at least once a year.
  • Test sewage pumps, floats and perform a load test. This helps you to know the expectancy of your pump and allows you to budget for a replacement.
  • Determine whether tanks or other components need pumping. This is where you can save a lot of money as if you leave pumping too late you can risk damage to your drain field. Which can be an extremely expensive mistake.
  • Visual inspection of drain field or pressure bed.
  • Check alarm and panel function, this allows us to see if there has been any trouble since our last week. It is surprising how many alarm controls have been switched to “silent” when we arrive.


All of these maintenance tasks are things we do daily, so get in touch with us and let us help you to keep your system in top shape!

When it comes to purchasing a recreational property you probably aren’t thinking about the septic system, however it’s something that you should definitely keep in mind. Whether you’re building brand new or considering buying an older property it’s important to think about either installing the septic system or maintaining it.

With recreational properties most are either lakefront or in remote locations, this can make it very difficult to successfully install a septic system. However this is what we at Septic Expert do best! We enjoy the extra challenge of design and installing a difficult septic system. We aren’t your average septic installer, check out a previous blog post to read more about our one of a kind builds.

When purchasing a new property remember to set some money aside for your septic system, you don’t want to be caught with a bill you haven’t budgeted for.
