If your septic tank needs to be worked on or pumped, there are a few things you need to do to keep you and your family safe.
Clear A Path
The first thing you need to do is clear a path to your septic tank for your septic worker. If you have any vehicles that are in the way, park them in another location before your septic worker arrives. If there are any other yard equipment that is in the way, put it away in another location where it will not interfere with access to your septic tank.
Most homeowners using city water and sewer systems never think about how important the process of waste management is when they flush their toilets or pull the plug for dirty dishwater to go down their drains. However, many homeowners probably do wonder why their monthly bills seem too high just for water and sewer services. One of the reasons your local sewage treatment plant charges higher rates is because of the money they may have to pay for sewer divers when sludge tanks need to be repaired.
