Septic Tank Maintenance

A well-installed septic system lays the foundation for effective wastewater treatment, but it's the diligent and routine maintenance that extends its service life from years into decades. Regular septic maintenance is not just a choice; it is a vital necessity. If it’s time for your septic maintenance in Reno, then call Rooter Man Plumbing to schedule a convenient appointment. We are also proud to offer urgent assistance in emergency cases. Call Rooter Man to speak with a member of our team today.

Pumping the Septic Tank

The primary component of your septic system, the septic tank, plays a central role by separating solids from wastewater. Over time, these solids accumulate and, if left unchecked, can cause blockages and even lead to septic system failure.
As such, septic tank pumping is a top priority in septic tank maintenance. Pumping your septic tank is like giving your system a breath of fresh air. It prevents sludge from overloading the tank and allows the wastewater to flow smoothly into the drain field, minimizing the risk of clogs and backups.
Regular septic tank pumping helps to avoid costly repairs and ensures the optimal performance of your septic system. The frequency of pumping depends on the tank size and household usage, but a professional will recommend a schedule that suits your specific needs.

Inspecting and Maintaining the Drain Field

The drain field is where the liquid effluent, or wastewater, from your septic tank is naturally purified and dispersed into the soil. Neglecting this critical component can lead to system failure, environmental contamination, and costly repairs.
Regular inspections and maintenance of the drain field ensure that it remains free of clogs, blockages, and excess moisture. This keeps the soil's ability to effectively treat and disperse effluent intact.
Well-maintained drain fields contribute to the longevity of your septic system and reduce the likelihood of backups, flooding, or contamination of the surrounding area. Routine checks help catch issues early, preventing extensive damage.

Nurturing Helpful Bacteria

Helpful bacteria in the septic tank are responsible for breaking down organic matter into sludge, playing a significant role in the treatment process. Septic tank pumping is a double-edged sword when it comes to maintaining bacteria. While it removes solids that could otherwise smother the beneficial bacteria, it's essential to ensure that some bacteria are left behind to repopulate the tank.
Avoid disposing of substances that can harm the bacteria in your septic tank. Non-biodegradable items, such as diapers, sanitary products, and plastic, should not be flushed down the toilet or sent through the sink. Additionally, choose septic-safe cleaning products and use them sparingly.
Rooter Man Plumbing’s septic maintenance pays particular attention to the condition of the bacteria in the septic tank.

We had a busted drain pipe. And we found Rooter Man Plumbing when we were searching for local plumbers in the area. We were having trouble finding someone to come out and fix it. I called the Rooter Man and they showed up the same day and fixed it in less than an hour. Very quick and reliable. Kept their number just in case if we need a plumber later.

Rory got here fairly quick for dinner time on a Saturday night. His actions were even faster for a complicated problem that had waste water backing into a first floor tub. Since it wasn’t our first time, he scoped the problem and gave us an assessment of the necessity for future repairs. Rory is very professional and honest. An Expert Plumber.
