If your neighborhood isn’t on city sewer infrastructure, your septic tank is more of investment than you think. Keeping it in proper working order is an investment in your home. And makes your home more appealing to potential buyers for obvious reasons.
Neglecting your septic tank could cost you more than the cost of replacement. That’s because wise homebuyers do their homework. In addition to liking the neighborhood, the school system and the condition of your home upkeep, an educated consumer will request record keeping on your septic tank. And if they don’t, their real estate agent will.
When you neglect calling in professional septic maintenance services, your tank will back up into your home and could even break. And when your system breaks, replacement is a pricey feat. And if it doesn’t cost our next homeowner thousands in replacement costs, it will cost you thousands in replacement costs.
Losing a sale to a home with a maintained septic tank is much more costly than the cost of draining every 5 years. If you do find yourself in the position of having to replace your septic tank, it is especially aggravating. This is in great part because of how preventable a septic system failure is.
