Septic Tanks in Lakeland – Septic tanks don’t require a lot of maintenance, but a few routine procedures every few years can go a long way. Most properties that have septic systems are in rural areas, so they need a system that can process and store waste, since they are too far away from traditional sewage plants. When you flush a toilet or run water down a drain in a building that has a septic system, pipes move the waste into a large cement tank that is buried under the ground. The heavier solid waste remains at the bottom of the septic tank, while the liquid waste moves through the tank for treatment in the drain field.
Septic tanks can become overloaded, especially if there is a high utilization of drains in the home or office. At Lee Kirk & Sons Septic, we offer a variety of services for septic tanks, from installation to repair to maintenance. If any part of your septic system breaks or stops working, it can result in a backup of the sewage that can go back into the home or office, or seep into the ground around the tank. This is potentially dangerous, so regular maintenance of your septic system is crucial.

Because we want to help you be informed, we have answered some frequently asked questions below.
What size septic tank do I need?
Why is septic tank pumping important?
Pumping is necessary for septic tanks because solid waste sinks to the bottom and remains there until we remove it. Without septic pumping, the solid waste can build to a level where it blocks the outlet pipe. This can result in sewage backups or other issues.
How often do septic tanks need maintenance?
According to the EPA, most residential septic systems should be inspected at least every 3 years and pumped every 3 to 5 years, but we can advise you on the best schedule for your situation depending on factors specific to the size of your tank and its usage. Proper maintenance and pumping help prevent your tank and overall septic system from failing early.
