Spring Considerations For Your Septic Tank

Spring Considerations For Your Septic Tank

While spring may mean lighter evenings and warmer weather for us, it can wreak havoc for your septic tank. Think temperature fluctuation and a hell of a lot of rain. Springtime weather such as this brings with it some unique problems for your septic tank however, with the correct care and maintenance, there are steps you can take to ensure any problems are prevented and your septic tank system remains in full working order.

Septic Tank Issues This Spring

Here are just a few of the problems septic tank owners could run into with a little helpful advice on how to manage or prevent.

Flooding – with frequent rain hitting this country hard and fast, flooding is a common occurrence at this time of year. This is especially the case for those with poor drainage. When the fields flood, the septic tank will not be able to correctly filter the wastewater. This will in turn lead to contaminated groundwater. That isn’t where it ends however, because the weight of the floodwater can damage the system further, leading to permanent problems. The way around this is by redirecting gutters and drains to alleviate some of the water flooding onto the fields.

Overworked Systems – due to the excess rain fall that we previously mentioned, your septic system can very easily become over worked. While the system itself will deal with extra waste water, it will subsequently work twice as hard handling the same amount of water from inside of the home. Very simply put, the work is made twice as hard for the septic system as it’s already close to full. To avoid this, it’s incredibly important to treat your septic tank to regular septic tank empties. With our annual septic tank emptying, you can ensure your septic tank is ready to deal with virtually anything the spring weather has to throw at it.

Debris Within The Tank – in addition to the excessive rain fall we often experience within spring, we’ll also enjoy spring storms which not only bring with it temperature and pressure changes but hail storms and more. After storms like this, it’s pretty common to find debris from trees and other foliage clogging up your drains and septic system. Although this sort of damage is mostly unavoidable, you can help minimise the damage by trimming your surrounding trees and foliage before this type of weather sets in. If debris does enter your septic system, you’ll need to have it pumped as soon as possible.
