, based in Spring City, Pennsylvania
, specializes in septic cleaning for residential septic systems. Why Septic Cleaning?
Septic cleaning is a procedure where the scum and solid wastes are pumped out of the tank. This is routine maintenance and should be done every two to five years, depending on the usage of your system. This is not a do-it-yourself job; let the professionals at Kulp and Sons complete the task for you.
You can extend the life of your septic tank by taking a few precautions. For example, avoid flushing strong cleaning chemicals into the tank, as these chemicals can kill the bacteria population that help digest the solid wastes. Similarly, do not put pesticides or herbicides down the drain as these, too, can harm the bacteria in the tank. Another thing to keep in mind is to avoid putting cooking oils and greases into the system, as they are difficult to break down and will build up. Anything you know that is not biodegradable should not be flushed into the septic tank. It will add to the buildup and require you to have your septic tank pumped out more often.
