Here at Delaware Valley Septic, Sewer & Storm, we offer the best septic replacement in Montgomery County and the surrounding areas. We pride ourselves in going above and beyond for every customer, and are always happy to use our expertise to advise homeowners on how to care for their septic systems. Recently, we had the opportunity to do this in Newtown Square Friends & Neighbors, when we had an article published entitled “How to Stay Ahead of Potential Septic, Sewer, and Stormwater Issues.” Included in this publication’s November 2019 edition, this article was written by our own Dave DiGregorio and TJ Dell’Arciprete for the “Expert Contributor” column..
The article discusses how common household duties such as raking leaves and HVAC maintenance may be among the more apparent tasks that homeowners get done, but getting their septic system serviced is not usually on their to-do list. Instead, homeowners adopt an “out of sight, out of mind” mentality. The article emphasized that a septic system should be pumped every one to three years, depending on how many people live in the home. To ensure that everything is still functioning as intended, readers should contact the experts at Delaware Valley Septic Sewer, & Storm to come out and take a look!
The article delves into the reasons readers’ septic systems require routine maintenance. Homeowners send grease, hair, soap products, and other waste down their pipes, which can damage a septic system over time. If there are trees nearby on the property, there’s a chance that roots will make their way into the underground piping and cause damage. Older homes are especially at risk, as cast iron terracotta piping is prone to debris build-up.
The article warns against using abrasive drain-cleaning products, since conditions in the pipes may need a solution that packs a harder punch – a solution that Delaware Valley Septic, Sewer & Storm can provide. Water-jetting will remove build-up inside any pipes and restore its full diameter.
