It’s that time of the year again, folks! If you’re preparing for your Oviedo septic tank pumping, follow these steps to ensure the process is seamless.
Acknowledgement is the first step to knowing when it’s time to invest in our Oviedo septic tank pumping service. Whether it’s been around 2-3 years or you’ve noticed that your disposal has been taking longer than usual, we’re happy to hear you’re taking the initiative to get your septic tank pumped. You’ll be so glad you did!
In order to prepare for this service, we’re sharing some things you, the owner, can do before our septic experts arrive on the scene.
Tip #1: Stop All Water Usage
If you are experiencing foul odors coming from your drain field, stop all water usage immediately and contact us for an appointment ASAP. This is a tell-tale sign that something is up in your septic tank and you should make a conscious effort to prevent anything else from entering the system.
Another sign that you should stop water usage is gurgling drains. Gurgling drains equal sewage backup, which can make its way into your home if ignored. For your (and your nose’s) sake, don’t put anything else down the drain until we come to the rescue.
Tip #2: Locate Your Septic Components
There’s certainly a chance that the company that installed your septic system either isn’t going to be the ones to pump it or they don’t entirely remember where it is located. Us septic companies do work on hundreds of properties every year!
Before help arrives for Oviedo septic tank pumping, go outside and figure out exactly where the septic system lives so that you can inform the technician when they arrive. Hopefully you were given a map of your septic system for these instances or for when you’re planning on landscaping or adding to your yard. If not, no worries! This is something you may want to keep in mind for your future septic needs.
Tip #3: Clear The Path
If you’ve been putting off yard work, now is the best time to get it cleaned up – or at least clear a path for our team! Any debris that is currently covering your septic tank can potentially get inside your system when our technicians go to open it up. This can cause catastrophic damage to the internal components, so we highly suggest removing any threats to your investment.
