Septic Tank Cleaning in Indianapolis

Living outside of a city’s municipal sewer lines can lead to a number of septic difficulties. Particularly, having a properly functioning septic system can mean the difference between a clean yard and a yard flooded with waste. Septic tanks are essential to a functioning non-municipal residential septic/sewage system. Septic tanks have a specific amount of space and require regular cleaning.

Max Haas has service experts in Indianapolis to make sure your septic tank is cleaned professionally and efficiently.

What is a Septic System?

Septic systems are underground wastewater treatment structures. The septic tank digests organic matter and separates floatable matter (e.g., oils and grease) and solids from the wastewater.

“Pumping” and “cleaning” are often interchangeable. However, they’re ever so slightly different. Cleaning is removing compacted sludge and all of the water from the bottom of the tank. Pumping is removing any floating solids/sludge in the septic tank and only some liquid.

Cleaning is a more thorough method of excavating the built up waste and sludge in tanks. Septic tank cleaning is a good way to make your septic tank capacity last longer. Scheduling regular septic tank pumping and/or cleaning is an absolute necessity. Speak with your septic expert at Max Haas to figure out which one is recommended for your specific septic system.

Emergency Service

Regular service is sometimes skipped. For example, many new homeowners may be unaware of the last time their system was cleaned. Luckily, Max Haas provides Indianapolis and its surrounding areas with emergency services. Major problems do not occur to all septic tank owners. However, that doesn’t mean you should ignore your septic tank’s maintenance needs.

The less often you clean your tank, the thicker the sludge can become toward the bottom of the tank. This also makes it much harder to remove the solids/sludge entirely. Cleaning your tank on a regular basis (regular depends on how much it is being used), allows the solids to be removed without much incident.

If solids/sludge build up on the bottom, your septic tank can begin to lose capacity and may lead to waste buildup in the ground around your septic system. This can turn into an emergency very quickly depending on how long it has been neglected. Emergencies happen, but regular service can help prevent the need for our emergency services.

The Importance of Septic Tank Cleaning

Replacing a septic system can be expensive, so taking care of it properly is essential. Regular cleaning can prevent unseemly problems due to a poorly maintained septic tank. A dysfunctional septic tank will pose problems for any household. Sewage backing up into household drains or wastewater coming up from the ground around the septic tank are both common issues. Pumping and cleaning your Indianapolis septic tank can help prevent those issues.
