Without proper maintenance, a septic system can lead to headaches and costly repair bills. The professional contractors at Drainage Solutions, Inc. can handle all of your septic needs and give you a clean and efficient system. You will have cost-effective solutions for all of your wastewater.
In a septic system, wastewater enters through a chamber into the septic tank. There, the solid sludge settles to the bottom, while the scum floats to the top. The liquid moves through the chamber, carrying the scum into another chamber, where solid waste further moves to the bottom. Finally, the excess liquid moves out into a drain field. Throughout the process, the waste is anaerobically decomposed.
When it works the way it should, a septic tank keeps a property functioning efficiently. The average tank should be pumped every three to five years. However, if left untreated, the tank can become full and overflow.
Does Your Septic Tank Need Repair?
It can be difficult to notice how a septic tank is functioning, primarily because you likely don’t visually see it when you use it like you do a faucet, drain, or sink. However, there are some telltale signs that you can keep an eye out for that may indicate your septic tank isn’t working the way it should. Common warning signs to look for include pooling water, foul odors, inexplicable brown and yellow patches in your lawn and slow draining toilets.
