SepticSmart Week is an annual event focused on helping people learn about the proper care and maintenance of their septic systems.
Taking care of your septic system is not only good for the environment, it could also save you a lot of money. A properly maintained system helps keep drinking water pure and protects vital resources, reducing the risk of contaminating local and regional waters. Malfunctioning systems can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $7,000 to repair or replace, compared to maintenance costs which are only $250 to $500 every three to five years. Read on to learn how to be SepticSmart.
