Regular Maintenance

It Happens Septic-Maintenance Scheduling

A homeowner can do the following things to ensure a clean and problem free septic system.

1. Keep trees from growing near the septic system.
2. Route rain water away from the septic system.
3. Do not use your toilet as a garbage disposal.
4. Do not build over top of the septic system.
5. Recommended Use of Acti-Zyme.

Regular maintenance is important for increasing the lifetime of the septic system. Experts advise that a 1000 gallon septic tank (used by a family of four), should be pumped out twice a year. Regular maintenance scheduling is a major part of our business services. A homeowner should know to never open a septic tank by themselves, as harmful gases can build up in the tank and become dangerous. It Happens Septic Service is trained to perform these tasks safely and effectively.
