A conventional septic system is made up of four main parts:
1. Pipes from the home/building
3. Drain field/leach field
All of these parts work together to carry solid waste and wastewater away from the building and process it underground.
The plumbing in your home or business connects to one main drainage pipe which brings waste into a septic tank.
Once waste hits the tank, it separates into three distinct layers: sludge, effluent, and scum. The sludge settles on the bottom of the tank while scum floats on top of the effluent/wastewater.
The effluent moves from the tank to the drainfield and distributes equally into several pipes.
The porous drain field piping allows pretreated wastewater to percolate through the soil. An overloaded drain field can flood and cause sewage to back up and flood the surrounding soil/gravel.
Once the underlying soil receives the wastewater, further filtration takes place via natural bacteria in the soil, removing harmful bacteria & viruses as well as nutrients which are absorbed by the ground. Ultimately, the completely filtered water will reach groundwater level and be safe for use and consumption once again.
Only a certified professional is qualified to evaluate factors like the size of tank needed for your building and the need for a tank replacement. Our professionals have the skills and expertise to install septic tank in the right spot and properly connect it to the appropriate plumbing from your home or business.
Whether you’re in the market to purchase a home or it’s simply long past due for a thorough septic tank inspection, our team is ready to tackle it for you. Ensuring any property you buy has a healthy system is perhaps one of the most important considerations during the transaction. Regular inspections can also save you thousands of dollars in repair and replacement costs over time.
Diagnosing any problems with your septic tank is the first step in determining how to fix it. Commonly, complications arise when the tank is not pumped as frequently as recommended. This can result in clogs in various places like the tank’s effluent filter or inlet baffle. Timely septic tank repairs are necessary to prevent costly replacements.
Cleaning goes a step further than a single septic tank pumping service to remove built up waste in your septic tank using pressurized water and other methods. Breaking down this compacted sludge can help prevent clogs and slow drainage.
