As a business owner, you have a lot on your mind, and your septic tank probably isn’t at the top of your list—until something goes terribly wrong. A septic system’s job is to treat and remove solids from wastewater, and if not adequately maintained, commercial septic tanks can cause drainage issues, wastewater back-ups, and leach field overflows. None of those situations is pleasant or inexpensive.
To avoid problems with your commercial septic tank, you first need to make sure it’s the correct size based on wastewater flow (gallons per day) and how often you have it serviced. Assuming your system is the right size, your next step in avoiding a disaster is simple: prevention. In addition to having your commercial septic tank pumped frequently, regular inspections and cleanings are worth the investment. A knowledgeable professional will check for leaks and cracks, ensure mechanical components are working correctly, remove sludge and clogs, and assess and adjust the pumping schedule to make sure your system doesn’t become overloaded.
Commercial septic tank costs vary widely depending on general site and soil conditions, tank size and material (concrete, fiberglass, or polyethylene), and required piping. Regardless, they’re a significant line item in your company’s budget, and it’s worth the effort to properly maintain them.
