January 16, 2020 The health of your septic system depends on how you take care of it. Just like your car needs an oil change, your septic tank needs pumped out and your septic field needs a break. Routinely having your septic pumped out helps to prevent costly repairs and septic field failure. As an incentive to home owners, Frederick County has a Septic System Pump-Out Program available. Check out their site here for more information. Let’s keep our septic systems healthy!
