Septic tank maintenance is vital if you don’t want to spend lots of money. Luckily, DavidPoz uploaded his video called “Septic Tank Maintenance for Homeowners,” where he describes everything you need to know about doing it right at home.
Still, hiring a septic maintenance service every three years for a thorough look at your system is recommended. But there’s a ton to learn about it online.

What You Don’t Know About Cleaning the Filter
In septic tanks, the oils stay above while the solids sink to the ground. There’s a discharge pipe in the middle that sends fluids to the leach field. There’s a filter in that pipe, which should be cleaned every six months. But most people tend to avoid that task as much as possible.
But you should be able to open it and clean it yourself easily with this video. It doesn’t require a septic maintenance service.
Don’t worry if you have to check the filter. Sometimes, people overthink because it is human waste, but you can get it done quickly and get back to your life. If you don’t do this, the filter could be clogged and dislocated, which means that it won’t work properly anymore. Did you know this already?
