Septic tanks can last decades with proper maintenance.
Septic tanks and drain fields are used by properties in the Indian Trail, North Carolina area that are not serviced by the municipal sewer system. Many homeowners prefer them, as there isn’t a monthly bill involved when you process waste on your own property. The flip side of that is you are responsible for maintaining the entire system rather than just the outgoing line before it attaches to a main sewer line. At RCS Inc., we can make that maintenance chore much easier for you with our semi-annual maintenance package.
This package takes the guesswork out of what septic tanks need in terms of maintenance and pumping. It will also give you peace of mind that a problem isn’t forming, as we do a thorough inspection of the entire septic system. If you follow the advice of some septic companies and only have your septic tank looked at 5 years (or even longer), you could face extensive repairs that you wouldn’t have needed to do if a problem had been caught early on.
Just like vehicles, septic tanks can last a very long time with proper maintenance and usage. In our more than 40 years of serving the community, we have seen newer septic tanks fail because of neglect and older ones still going strong after decades because they were maintained properly.
If you have questions about septic tanks, including steps you can take to prevent problems, or if you would like to learn more about our semi-annual maintenance package, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
