All systems require maintenance. From a basic toilet to a fully functioning wastewater system.
As an example when septic systems are properly designed, constructed, and maintained, they effectively reduce or eliminate most human health or environmental threats posed by pollutants in household wastewater. However, they require regular maintenance throughout their serviceable lives or they can fail.
If well maintained, onsite systems will perform as intended and last for a long time. If not, they may malfunction, become expensive to correct and potentially create a risk to health. As with a car, proper maintenance leads to lower cost of ownership. A British Columbia homeowner must engage a Maintenance Provider or a Professional to maintain sewerage systems constructed on and after May 31, 2005. Although systems constructed under the ‘old’ regulation are not subject to requiring Registered Practitioners or Professionals to perform maintenance, it is highly recommended.
