Residential Septic System Service in Massachusetts and South of Boston
Proper, Routine Septic Tank Cleaning Protects Your Septic System
Your onsite waste treatment system represents a significant investment which you should protect. With proper operation and regular maintenance/pumping from Premier Pumping Service, your system will function much more efficiently and have longer life. Although many homeowners in Massachusetts and South of Boston would like to overlook their septic tank maintenance, it is far too important to neglect.
Pumping Your Septic Tank Regularly
If the build up of solids in the tank becomes too high and solids move to the drain field, this could clog and strain the system to the point where a new drain field will be needed. Routine pumping costs over the extended lifetime of your system are far less than replacement costs.
Septic Pumping / Septic Draining is suggested every 1-2 years for primary residence and 4-5 years for a vacation home or when the total depth of sludge and scum exceeds one-third of the liquid depth of the tank.
Routinely servicing your septic system is the most important factor in maintaining and ensuring your septic system is protected properly. With regular septic maintenance, you can decrease the risk of a damaged drainage field due to solids flowing in to the drainage field. Simple routine maintenance can minimize the potential need for a new drainage field and protect your investment. By consulting Premier Pumping Service you will gain confidence knowing that your septic tank is operating at maximum efficiency.
Proper septic maintenance largely depends on the following 3 factors:
Total Number of people living in your household (permanent and vacation homes will differ in the amount of time between recommended routine maintenance)
Amount of wastewater generated (permanent and vacation homes will differ in the amount of time between recommended routine maintenance)
Volume of solids present in the wastewater (i.e. use of a garbage disposal will increase the frequency of recommended routine maintenance)
Inspect Your Septic System At Each Service
An experienced septic tank and septic system inspector will be able to uncover problems immediately. Inspections can reveal problems before they become serious, and by checking the levels of sludge and scum in your septic tank, you can get a more accurate idea of how often it should be pumped.

Premier Pumping Service protects your septic system from potential major damage by facilitating minor septic system repairs promptly. Properly installed septic systems make maintenance and repairs simple.
