Tips on Properly Maintaining Your Holding Tank

October 11, 2013

How to properly maintain your holding tank


There are many issues that could come along with your holding tank like: overflowing toilets, bad smells that permanently linger in your home , and sinks and tubs backing up. Luckily these issues can be avoided by learning how to properly maintain your holding tank.

You should have your holding tank inspected by professionals. Getting inspections is very affordable and it will help prolong your holding tank. Having a professional inspect it helps you to reassure that your holding tank is in good condition and working properly.

Another good way to maintain your holding tank is to have it pumped by professionals every three to five years. How often you will need your holding tank pumped will depend on the amount of water your household uses. The more people in your home and the more water that is used the faster the tank will fill up, thus it will need pumped. If you want to avoid getting your holding tank pumped more frequently you should keep track of the water used within your home. 

Also, you should make sure to call a plumber and fix any leaks or running toilets. They can fill up your holding tank really quickly, so do not avoid any of these. 

It is also good to know where your holding tank is planted. Avoid placing or planting anything heavy over the area, or plants with big roots. Large roots could damage your holding tank over time and puncture it. 

You should also avoid draining things around your holding tank, such as: hot tubs, gutters, and pools. The water could make its way down into your holding tank and rapidly fill it up.

All of these are good ways to keep your holding tank maintained. If you do keep your holding tank properly maintained it could help save you a lot of money in the long run.
