Septic Tank Filters
Your septic system is naturally very efficient at separating solids from effluent and scum in the septic tank under normal conditions. Sometimes the natural balance of healthy bacteria can be thrown off and interfere with proper breakdown of waste, or household items that don’t belong in the septic system are thrown down the drains.
When this happens, non-biodegradable solids will float around the tank and even cause clogs in the system. It’s very important to try to prevent solids from moving to the drain field where they can cause even further blockages.
