Septic tank desludging professionals

Posted on August 30, 2018

When it comes to septic tanks, desludging is another word for cleaning.

And while the word ‘cleaning’ is enough to make most of us sigh with annoyance, putting the words ‘septic tank’ in front lifts it to a completely new level.

Septic tank desludging is a job for professionals, such as the experienced crew at Sludgebusters. It’s also a job that should be carried out at least every three years if you own a septic tank or domestic wastewater treatment system. Failure to do so can cause serious issues to the health of your septic treatment system, the environment, you and your family and your bank balance.

Put simply, a well-maintained septic system will perform more efficiently and last longer than one that gets no maintenance or attention. And a key part of looking after these household workhorses is to carry out septic tanks desludging on a regular basis. Desludging removes the semi-solid material in tanks and treatment systems that’s left from the wastewater of treatment processes.

Failure to desludge regularly can seriously disrupt your household – think toilets that don’t work and drains that simply don’t drain – and lead to a range of disgusting and unhygienic problems that no householder wants to tackle and no family wants to experience.

So pay attention to what your septic tank is telling you and take action. Are there bad odours wafting from the tank or your home’s drains? Is your toilet blocked? Does water seem to take forever to drain from your bath, shower or basins? These can all be signs that you need to call Sludgebusters for help.

But we would strongly recommend that you don’t wait until warning signs appear. Instead, get on top of any problems with regular septic tank maintenance.
