Journey Through Septic Maintenance and Repair

Journey Through Septic Maintenance and Repair

Hello! I'm Alfred Alena. While living on a farm, we had to get our water from the well and process waste with a septic system. In the early years, that septic system caused us a boatload of trouble. The cause was a combination of user error and undeveloped parts. As we started to learn how to treat the septic system right, it clogged less often and ran much better. We also upgraded our septic parts to bring it into the modern era. The combination gave us a septic system that worked just as good as the sewers. I feel that sharing this information with the world will help people struggling with septic systems. I hope that my readers can use the information I share to end their struggles with septic cleaning and maintenance. I will also share information about hiring professionals to get the job done. Welcome!
