Over in America there have been advisory reports on local press websites on how residents can safely maintain their septic tanks and sewage treatment plants following the bad weather.
Following adverse weather in the state of Virginia, one local publication has given some guidance online, asking residents that own such systems to:
Check and determine if any erosion or other damage may have occured to the system
Any instances of damage should be checked and rectified before further damage or problems with the system are encountered
Consider that the system might be running slower as a result of the bad weather
Here in the UK we are luckier with the weather, although this doesn’t rule out tank and system damage like this as a result of heavy rainfall, snow or other conditions.
MTM drains can provide the type of inspection and maintenance services mentioned in this news report, which for many people it is not really possible to undertake without specialist equipment and trained engineers.
Regular maintenance and inspections of tanks and systems are an important part of its life and ensuring they are completed should assist in keeping the system running for as long as possible.
More information on the original news report I read can be found on the South Mountain Eagle website.
