DVS Uncategorized

Anyone with a septic tank in their backyard understands how important it is to maintain. We here at Delaware Valley Septics, Sewer & Storm, the top choice for septic system repair in Chester County, have helped home and business owners stay on top of their septic tanks for decades.

As a proud member of the Pennsylvania Septage Management Association, we offer our services across Gladwyne, Radnor, Villanova, West Chester, and the surrounding areas. Here are some of the more common hints you need to have your tank emptied:

It’s Time

Homeowners should generally have their tank pumped every year and a half. We advise homeowners to not go any longer than three years without a pump and inspection. It is important to note that this timeframe should be shorter for those who have a lot of family members living at home.

Pooling Water

If you’ve noticed water pooling in places where it shouldn’t be, then you may need to get your septic tank serviced. Water can start to pool anyplace around your property, but the most tell-tale sign is when it begins to gather around the tank itself and the drain field. This is a serious indication that you should get your tank inspected immediately.

Slow Draining/Weak Flushing

Another easy-to-spot sign is noticing any issues or hiccups with your sinks, showers or tubs. From issues like your shower water not draining as quickly as normal to more noticeable ones (like problems with your toilet flushing) can help be an indicator that your septic tank may need to be serviced.
