If you rely on a septic tank to remove wastewater from your home, it’s essential for you to take care of it. For many, a septic tank is a background appliance silently doing its job with very little maintenance. Thinking this way, however, can often leave homeowners in an undesirable situation. Even if you have a brand-new septic tank installed in your home, how many years you actually get out of it relies entirely on how you choose to maintain it.
Septic tank abuse can cause homeowners to replace their tank much sooner than deemed reasonable. This could include everything from flushing non-biodegradable waste down the toilet and using water softeners, to driving over the absorption field or planting trees and shrubbery in that area so roots can grow and cause rupture or clogging.
Despite following our advice, if issues occur, it’s important to have septic tank supplies and tools on hand to potentially stop the damage and eliminate the need for professional assistance or a replacement. If you’re a first-time homeowner who has never had to deal with septic tank issues before, that’s ok. Just stop into our storefront in La Grange, TX and speak with the knowledgeable staff at Farmers Lumber Company. We’d be happy to point you in the direction of which tools and supplies are best for your septic tank repair and maintenance needs.
