What’s on Your Autumn Maintenance Check (√) List?

Autumn is a busy time for homeowners.  As much as the cooler weather is a respite from the hot and humid days of July and August, it’s a sure sign that the cold and snow of winter is just around the corner!  So—we put away the patio furniture (√); clean up and store the lawnmower and yard tools (√); do a maintenance check on the furnace (√); and schedule the septic tank cleaning (√).

If the septic tank cleaning isn’t on your autumn check list, it probably should be!   C&L Sanitation has been pumping septic tanks in northwest Ohio for 50 years.

Septic Tank Health Doesn’t Take a Spring Break

In a normal year, now is about the time that many folks would be on their spring break.  As the world starts to get back to something like normal, your spring may or may not include a break.  But even if YOU get a break, your septic system isn’t as lucky!  It’s hard at work for you all the time – so spring is the perfect time to do your septic system, and yourself, a big favor.

The Days are Getting Shorter

The nights are cooler and the woolly caterpillar is putting on its winter coat! Harvesting is in full swing and many of us are checking (√) our “getting ready for winter” list.  Does that list include the health of your septic system?

Fresh Water, Anyone?

What’s on Your “Putting the Garden to Bed” Checklist?

Does your fall checklist include “putting your garden to bed”?  It can mean lots of raking, deadheading, and trimming to assure the health of your lawn and plants.  While you’re working hard to assure a healthy lawn and garden for next spring, have you given any thought to the health of what’s under the ground?  (And we don’t mean the worms and other creepy crawlers!)  Is it time to put the health of your septic system on your fall to-do list?  Do you know how long it’s been since you had your septic tank pumped?

Septic System Health

Homeowners outside city limits (and possibly outside the limits of a water and sewer district) need to be ever attentive to the waste discharged from the sinks, toilets, washing machines, etc. in their homes.  If a septic system is properly installed on their property, the waste disposal system is safe and effective; (and at the same time assures a homeowner that sewage waste and other byproducts are not polluting our waterways).   If, however, drains become sluggish and/or odorous, or the ground surrounding the septic tank is mushy, or the grass is greener in the septic tank area, the septic tank might need to be pumped.
