SEPTIC SERVICES 101
We all had to start somewhere; and for many it begins with questions to which we never thought of asking before. With Septic Services 101, we can give you a brief overview to help your understanding. For more detailed questions, please visit our FAQ page!
What Is the Septic Tank?
The Septic tank is a large container placed underground where the wastewater from your home (bathroom, kitchen and laundry) goes. Often this Sealed Septic tank works well for many years on its own, however, to keep it working well, you must do yearly inspections and a clean out about every two years. Basically, the solids are reduced to sludge by the septic tank bacteria. The solids that do not decompose stay in the tank and need to be pumped out by professional Septic tank pump services. If the homeowner does not call in a professional to do periodic septic tank cleaning, this sludge will accumulate and overflow into the drain field. This eventually causes extensive damage.
What Is The Drain Field?
When the septic tank releases wastewater it is called effluent and it goes into a drain field for final treatment and disposal. This field is made up of a number of perforated pipes and septic tank extension covers that lay in the soil field. The effluent trickles out of the pipes into gravel and then soil.
Despite the septic tanks ability to filter and degrade much of the waste, there is still a certain amount of waste that remains in the tank. When these solids reach about 35% of the space in the main tank, it should be pumped out.
Septic Tank Inspection
Our Inspection and maintenance service professionals work to help upkeep your septic tank system. A yearly septic maintenance service appointment works as a preventative measure to give your septic system a longer life and prevent unnecessary break downs. when we go out on an inspection call we check the septic tank, septic tank vent, septic tank extension, septic tank lid risers, septic tank alarm, and essentially inspect the entire system, looking for any and all septic tank problems.
How Often Should I Clean the Septic Tank?
Having a backed up septic tank system is not a fun problem to handle. Even so, the problem can be caused by a number of different reasons. Sometimes, something as simple as a clog in the septic tank drainage line can cause a septic problem. However, an easy fix does not mean the problem should be ignored.
