What You Need to Know About Your Septic System

The septic system on your Sacramento property plays a crucial role in your home’s plumbing. Any problems with septic systems or sewer lines can quickly become an emergency, and yet many people are unaware of how they should approach septic care, cleaning, and sewer repair. Here are a few important points about your septic system, and what you need to know about how to maintain it.

  • Cleaning and Inspection

Septic tanks need to be periodically cleaned and pumped out. Typically, this process needs to happen every two to five years. Because of this range, it’s very important to have your septic tank inspected at least once every two years, which will provide an indication of when the cleaning needs to happen.  

  • Provide Enough Space

Locate and take note of where your septic tank is. Keep heavy vehicles away, as they may crack and damage sewer pipes. Sewer problems are often caused by roots growing into the sewer pipes, which clogs the plumbing. You can avoid this by keeping the area around your septic system free of trees, bushes, shrubs, and anything that puts out root systems. The drain field of the septic system can also become clogged or obscured if an object or structure is set on top of it, so keep the area open.  

  • Care and Treatment

Provide the septic lids with risers at ground level for improved maintenance access, but make sure the lids are locked for child safety. In the home, remember that septic systems use organic methods of breaking down waste, which means that any artificial or non-organic substance will not be processed. This also means that harsh chemicals can compromise the efficacy of the entire system.

Sewer repair and septic system maintenance has come a long way, and today Ace Plumbing uses the latest video-inspection technology to make inspections quicker, more convenient, and more thorough than ever before. If your septic system does need a drain cleaning or repair, we can handle that too. For more on our septic system maintenance services across Sacramento, give us a call at (916) 455-4548.

How to Get Your Air Conditioning System Working Its Best

Homeowners all across Sacramento rely on their air conditioners to stay cool and comfortable at home. But like all machines, air conditioning systems need maintenance and the occasional repair to achieve their full potential. Keeping your air conditioner in good shape helps to make it more effective and efficient. It can also extend its longevity and reduce the likelihood of future problems. Here are some steps that you can take to help your air conditioner work the best that it can.

  • Tune Ups

Regular tune ups are a great way to stay on top of the condition of your heating and cooling systems. Ideally, your system should get a tune up before the serious heat of summer sets in. Since most air conditioners in Sacramento go unused for months during the cooler seasons, they can have problems when its time to get them going again in the summer. Ace Plumbing can help get your air conditioner ready for heavy use when you really need it, so you don’t get stuck without your AC.

  • Repair

It’s a good idea to pay attention to any signs that your air conditioning system may be ailing, or have something wrong with it. If your air conditioner is not delivering the right temperature, has been making strange noises, or you’ve noticed that your energy bills have gone up, then you may need some repair work done on your HVAC. Catching and repairing problems promptly can also help to avert more serious malfunctions down the road.
