Many people don't realize that if you have a private septic, that you need to pump the tank every2-3 years. In fact, many counties here in Minnesota now require proof that you did.
Spring is one of the best times to do this maintenance. One of the big reasons is because, Private Septic systems can freeze in the winter if there isn't enough snow during a really harsh cold spell. The reason for pumping in the spring, is that this gives your system a chance to get the micro bacteria growing again. These little creatures create heat while in the process of breaking down the matter you put into the system.
This heat will ensure that your system doesn't freeze in a severe cold snap. Think about it...A frozen system is not good! Very costly to thaw out or pump every couple of weeks.
Do yourself a favor and if your system needs pumping...DO IT NOW!
