Maintenance is Key!
With Spring right around the corner, septic tank owners are looking for professionals that will give them the affordable, high-quality septic tank care and maintenance they're looking for! An entire septic system replacement will cost you a pretty penny, while regular careful maintenance from ASAP will help you and your septic tank feel ready to take on Spring with confidence!
In the Boise area, Spring brings beautiful weather of both sunshine and rain! While the rain allows for our flower to bloom and buds to blossom, it can also put some stress on your septic tank! Boise residents are lucky enough to experience all four seasons. But having melting Winter snow on the ground at the start of our Spring showers can cause a water overload in our yard!
No matter where you live, the septic tank that is best equipped to face the weather patterns of a new season is one that has been properly maintained and properly used.
- Identify where your septic tank is in your yard so as to better identify any problems (i.e. yard flooding) in the future. If you're left wondering, "Where is my septic tank?", here is a rule of thumb that can be helpful in finding your septic tank: usually, the snow melts directly above your septic system before anywhere else in the yard! Look for the “bald spot” on the ground, and that will be your septic tank! Call ASAP at (208) 991-7184 for professional help on how to find your septic tank.
- Limit water use whenever it’s possible. An overused system is problematic in any season. But mix a wastewater overload with melting snow and new rainfall and you have a flood! Be as conservative with you water as much as possible.
- Avoid unnecessary pressure on your septic tank. Don’t drive vehicles over the soil above the septic tank, and don’t plant any deep-rooted trees next to your system. This will keep the pipes from being moved or crushed and will keep them in better shape to face the new season.
