Septic systems can last for decades, but they won’t last forever. However, there are things that can cause a septic system to fail prematurely, including lots of paper products and other materials that cannot decompose backing up the tank and eventually cause failure of the entire system. Watch this video to learn why septic tanks fail and how systems are replaced. You’ll also learn a bit more about how septic systems work.
If your septic system is between 20 and 40 years old (or older), contact a septic system installation company in San Francisco to begin the process of replacing your existing septic system. Installing a new septic tank before your old one fails completely can save you a lot of time, money, and frustration in the long run, and it can also provide you with more freedom to fully explore your options since you won’t feel rushed to get a new septic tank in the ground as quickly as possible.
