Now that spring is here, it's time to think about your septic system. If you've been postponing septic service, you're in luck. You might not know this, but spring and summer are the best seasons for septic service. Read the list provided below. Here are four reasons to choose spring and summer for septic service.  

Avoid Frozen Soil 

If you're like a lot of people, you might think fall and winter are the best seasons for septic service. But, that's not the case. The soil gets quite cold during the fall and winter. Unfortunately, once the soil freezes it can get hard to dig through. That can make servicing your septic system more difficult. Depending on how frozen the soil is, heavy equipment might need to get used for the digging. That can result in damage to your septic tanks. To avoid frozen soil, have your septic system pumped during the spring or summer. That way, the soil is warm and easy to dig through. 

Prepare for Extra Use

If your household is like most, you use more water during the spring and summer months. Between the extra laundry and the summer houseguests, your septic system needs to work overtime. That's why it's a good idea to service your septic system during the spring and summer months. Removing wastewater and solid waste can help reduce the risk of summer septic problems. 

Diagnose Septic Issues

If your septic system has been giving you problems, spring, and summer are the best times for a service call. It's easier to identify septic problems when the soil is warm. That's especially true where leaks and sediment filters are concerned. Once the soil warms up, leaks become more visible. Plus, warm temperatures let your service technician get a better view of the sediment filter. Make sure your septic crew gets a good view of the problems. Schedule septic pumping when the weather warms up. 

Reduce the Risk of Flooding

If you need to get your septic system serviced, you want to schedule service around the rainy season. That's why spring and summer are the best seasons for septic service. Torrential rains can saturate the soil. Once the soil gets saturated, your septic tank can become unstable. If it rains while your septic is getting serviced, the tanks can flood. Luckily, you can reduce flood risks by scheduling septic pumping during the spring and summer months.
