At this time of year, just like you, each member of staff at euroloo begin to feel the pinch. It seems to be that no matter what you cut back on, there’s always a new bill here or there and what’s more, there’s Christmas presents to buy, as well as wrapping paper, cards and the inevitable onslaught of Christmas parties to pay for too. Throw in a few new Christmas outfits and instead of starting the New Year with a bang, you find yourself already playing catch up with your finances before it’s even begun. So when it’s time to have your septic tank looked at, we understand the feeling isn’t always a welcomed bill to pay. Thankfully, we’re going to make things a whole lot easier for you by helping you spread the cost! Before we tell you more about our offer, let’s first look at just why it’s so important that you put a plan in place to have your septic tank emptied and seen too by professionals such as ourselves.
While many enjoy a “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it” philosophy, sadly that doesn’t quite cut it with your septic tanks. So what actually needs to be done?
Recommended Maintenance – Most tanks do indeed have available space for accumulated sludge before they begin to struggle to function correctly however, that’s not an open invite to leave things for as long as you want. When it comes to regular maintenance, there’s no perfect answer however, it’s recommended that you have your septic tank looked at once a year before winter hits. Waiting too long could leave the septic tank in an irreparable state leading to permanent damage to your drain field, the septic tank itself and a serious inconvenience (as well as cost) when you aren’t able to make use of it until a new one’s been placed or damaged parts repaired. In the case of your septic tank, it’s always best to be ahead of the game.
Prior History – Taking a look at the history of the tank and how sludge has accumulated is always recommended simply because prior history is a great indicator of how often you should be emptying your tank. The majority of the time, it’s quite easy to judge whether someone’s gone over or under their recommended time once you’ve pumped. If someone’s gone under, the result is fine and usually means the occupant or owner of the septic tank going a little longer between empties. If however, it’s over the time limit, the sludge could possibly cause damage to the system and subsequently cause the septic tank to need replacing…costly.
Household Habits – The way each and every household disposes of it’s waste plays a big part in the time frame of a septic tank’s need for emptying. If a household is more wasteful, then they’ll of course require more regular emptying. Non-decomposable items can also clog up the system and this of course needs to be taken into account. In fact, this factor is the number one cause for most blockages occurring in homes. It’s best to stay on top of this, making sure everyone in the household is aware of what can and can’t be flushed down the toilet to ensure blockages are avoided at all costs. This is of course a much more cost-effective route.
Even when everything goes to plan however, simple septic tank emptying is a bill we could all do without. It’s for this reason we’ve created an easy payment plan to help those who may struggle with larger, one off bills. Our payment plans begin from just £15 a month for domestic customers.
