Let me introduce myself...
Hi, my name is Kelsey Trimmer and, in cooperation with my family, I’m the new owner of A-Two Septic. After many years spent serving the needs of customers and community the founder of A-Two Septic sought to sell the business he built by the sweat of his brow and retire. Coincidentally, I was seeking to purchase a solid business matching my expertise.
Now, I’m generally suspicious of a product or service billed as “New and Improved” or “Under New Management”. Those phrases imply, at least to me, that original versions lacked quality or previous management was incompetent and unresponsive. A-Two Septic, however, is under new ownership, my ownership, precisely because I wanted to purchase a well managed company with an obvious regard for your needs.
Why Regular Service?
Your septic tank is one of the most important parts of your home and having your septic tank pumped with regularity is an important part of your septic system maintenance; important for your home, important to the health of your family and, also, important to the environment.
In fact, a poorly maintained septic system threatens the health of the soil as well as the people in the surrounding area. Scheduling regular septic pumping with a company like A-Two Septic will go a long way toward ensuring this doesn't happen to you!
If it's been awhiles since your septic system was pumped then maybe you should schedule your service today! Call us at the numbers listed above or fill out our handy "Request Service" form.
Maintaining Your Septic System
Okay, you now know the reasons it's so important to service your septic system on a regular basis:
- Sludge build-up is unavoidable and regular servicing helps maintain manageable levels; averting the need for septic repairs.
- Pumping your septic tank on a regular basis helps to ensure that your septic system maintains a healthy liquid balance.
- Regular septic service and pumping can assist in identifying potential problems that may lay below the surface.
In addition to regular septic service, here are a few things you can do to increase efficiency and reduce the potential for problems with your septic system:
- Divert rainwater (or water from hoses) away from your septic leach field. If your leach field is too full of water it won’t drain properly and it will have problems absorbing waste.
- Reduce the load on your septic system by conserving water. For example, do laundry throughout the week instead of all at once; use flow reducing nozzles on showers; wash full loads in your dishwasher.
- Only flush waste and toilet paper down your toilet. Cigarette butts, paper towels, diapers, baby wipes, cat litter, coffee grounds, etc. don't break down in your septic tank; possibly causing problems with your septic system.
- Bacteria must be present in your septic tank to break down and digest the solids. A wide range of anti-bacterial soaps, detergents and cleaning fluids, including bleach, do a great job killing bacteria in your home but they also destroy the beneficial bacteria your septic system needs in order to function properly; use them in moderation.
- Garbage disposals can double the amount of solids added to a septic tank but the best disposals will grind waste into smaller bits that break down more quickly when they reach the system.
