Preparing Your Septic and Plumbing Systems for a Stress-Free Season

As we approach the middle of the fall season, it’s essential not to overlook the maintenance of your septic and plumbing systems. Lion Home Service is here to remind you of the importance of getting ahead of the winter weather and scheduling your septic pumping and plumbing maintenance. Here, you will find how to prepare your septic and plumbing systems for the winter season.

Why Do You Want Your Septic Pumped Before Winter Sets In?

Septic tank maintenance is crucial to ensure the health of your home. Household septic tanks should typically be pumped every two to three years, but regular maintenance is recommended, considering factors such as household size, wastewater generation, tank size, and more.

Imagine it’s the heart of winter, and you’re hosting guests over the holidays. The increased water and septic usage during this time can put additional strain on your system. If you’re due for septic pumping, now is the time to act.

Why are we emphasizing getting your septic pumped before winter sets in? As temperatures drop, the ground can freeze, making it challenging to access your septic system. Snow and ice further complicate the process especially if you have an in-ground septic access point. However, emergencies can happen, and Lion Home Service is here to assist in any septic-related crisis. Call us immediately at (970) 510-0522 if you encounter a septic emergency.

Don’t Forget Your Pipes

While many homeowners focus on septic system maintenance during this season, it’s equally vital to address potential pipe problems. The dropping temperatures can lead to frozen pipes, causing inconvenience and costly damage.

Now is the perfect time to conduct a thorough inspection of your home, paying close attention to your plumbing system. Take a walk through your house and listen carefully for any possible drips or leaks coming from faucets. With the weather still above freezing, contacting us for plumbing maintenance will ensure that you’re well-prepared to enjoy the season without the worry of potential plumbing problems.

Why Choose Lion Home Service

At Lion Home Service, we understand that our clients value transparency in pricing. That’s why we don’t typically offer up-front pricing for septic pumping. It’s similar to going to see a doctor to diagnose a health issue. We charge $29 for an expert to come out and accurately diagnose any problems with your septic system so you know exactly what you’re paying for. This approach allows you to understand the health of your home’s septic system with an accurate cost of treatment.

It’s important to note that for septic pumping requests, where no issues need resolution, there may not be a diagnostic fee involved. In such cases, you would only incur the dispatch fee and the cost of the pumping service, provided there are no problems with your septic system.

Many of our clients may not be aware of our Total Care Club membership program, which offers a range of benefits that can significantly reduce your costs for regular maintenance services or larger purchases, including waived dispatch fees. But what is the difference between a dispatch fee and a diagnostic fee?

Dispatch Fee: This fee not only covers the cost of sending a professional technician to your location but also contributes to vehicle maintenance and servicing. This ensures that we can promptly respond to your service needs, whether it’s a plumbing issue or a septic emergency, and do so with as little disruption due to vehicle issues as possible.

Diagnostic Fee: This fee is related to the septic pumping we mentioned earlier. It allows us to accurately diagnose any problems with your septic system. Like a doctor’s visit for your home’s health, it ensures we identify issues before they escalate.
