Do you have a problem with your septic tank?
One of the most common problems affecting septic tanks is tree root invasion. These roots can end up growing in the pipes and causing clogs. Septic tanks can also become damaged by soakaway problems.
Harsh chemicals also lead to trouble. If chemical drain cleaners or other harsh agents flow into your septic tank, the chemicals can end up killing the necessary bacteria in your tank. This kind of bacteria is essential in breaking down waste.
How can you tell if your septic tank is having issues? Look out for these signs:
Your toilet is not flushing properly (slow flush or overflowing)
The grass in your yard is unusually wet
There is a strong smell of waste or sewage in your yard
How often does your system need maintenance?
Make sure your septic tank is maintained on a regular basis for continued efficiency. We recommend inspections at least once a year. This way, potential or minor problems can be quickly identified and fixed so your system will remain at its best.
Many systems can last 25 years or more with proper maintenance.
How can you avoid problems?
One of the most important things to remember is to not let your septic tank fill with too much water. The tank will work better if the water volume does not get too high. There are several ways to avoid this, from repairing water leaks as soon as you notice them to taking shorter showers.
We do not recommend using a garbage disposal if you have a septic tank. Food items are slower to break down and can cause problems in your tank. If you do use a garbage disposal, you may have to pump out your septic tank more often.
