By Beverly Jacobs
If you have a septic tank, knowing the signs of impending issues can save you thousands of dollars in repairs. Many people are not sure about septic tank care, however there are several signs you may notice indicating a problem with the septic tank. In most cases, a septic tank should be cleaned out on average every 3 to 5 years. Although there are other factors, such as the number of people in the house, a washer on the system, or heavy rain periods, can often dictate how often a tank is given maintenance.
