The better you maintain your septic tank, the more efficiently you can expect your plumbing system to work. It’s a good idea to mark the location of your septic tank so it’s easy to find for maintenance. Make sure the lid is closed to keep animals and rainwater out, and check for any cracks in it as well. Take a look every now and then to see if you might need pumping, and keep a log of every time you do have your septic tank pumped. It’s best to have your septic tank pumped every 3 to 5 years.
