Commercial septic systems vary greatly in size, price, and upkeep and there are many factors that affect the type of commercial septic system needed for a condo or apartment complex. Often times it depends on the size of the facility, the number of residents, and the location. Since installing or replacing a commercial septic tank can be expensive it is important to keep in mind the following tips.
Tip 1: Ensure that the unit is installed by an experienced professional. This is crucial to the proper functioning of a commercial septic tank.
Tip 2: Regular septic inspections and routinely scheduled maintenance will ensure that your system serves your commercial property well for years to come. All septic tank systems come with a recommended cleaning and pumping schedule depending on the size, type and frequency of use. Never try to clean or pump the tank by yourself. A professional should be contacted to ensure that anything that needs to be cleaned or serviced is treated properly.
Tip 3: When commercial septic systems are not draining properly (whether it is due to a clog, a leak or other issues), a professional should be called to correct the problem. If not corrected immediately, sewage is able to rapidly back up into the surrounding buildings and create giant puddles on the property. In addition to being an unpleasant mess, exposed sewage can pose a serious health risk to anyone who comes in contact with the bacteria.
As you know, managing apartment and condominium residences involves significant work and time, so following these simple tips above can help you save time and avoid messy, costly, and potentially dangerous problems for you and your tenants.
