Although some cities and rural areas are on sewer systems, there are still many places in the US and all over the world that use septic tanks. One of the most important things to know about septic tank systems is proper maintenance, and this includes having your tank pumped every few years. Thankfully there are many fine septic pumping trucks available and you only need to call your local septic service to come out and pump out the tank. However, what would happen if these special trucks did not exist? It would be a much different world today.
When you call your septic tank professionals they come out to your home to check out your tank. You can get out in your yard with a shovel and try to find the lid(s) to your tank. However, this is not necessary, as these people will locate the lid for you for a nominal fee. This is much easier than getting all dirty and sweaty from digging your yard up.
Once the lids are located, the septic service people remove the lids and inspect your tank. If it is full of solids, they have special septic pumping trucks to suck out all of the solids from the tank. It’s best to have your garden hose handy for the service, so they can wash down the sides of the tank, and they also may need to liquefy some of the solids, to make pumping easier.
It will not take long for your tank to be pumped out, and this usually fixes the problem. However, if it is has been too long since the last pumping, there may be sludge in your drain field pipes or drain system, and your septic service can take care of this issue also.
What if These Services Did Not Exist?
If there were no septic pumping trucks available, septic tanks all over the world would become full of sludge over time. But what would happen to all the sludge? You might have to close off the fuel tank and install a new one. This could be an expensive ordeal, and if you waited too long, you could have dark spots in the yard that emit a nasty odor.
The entire world would be smellier and contaminated if septic pumping trucks were not here. Yes, it is a dirty job, but someone has to do it and your septic company provides vital services to you and the community, making your neighborhood a much nicer and cleaner place to live.
