3 Steps of Septic Installation
Septic tanks must be installed under the written regulations and codes from the city. Before a contractor can touch your property, he must get all necessary permits from the city (or state) regarding septic systems. Without these permits, the process can be shut down and/or greatly delayed.
What to Expect With Septic Tank Pumping
Septic tank pumping is a necessary service to maintain your septic tank. On average, a pumping is needed every 3 to 5 years, but this is dependent on the size of your tank and number of people in your household. During a septic tank pumping, solid sludge is removed from the bottom of the septic tank. This is needed to prevent the sludge from building up to a level that blocks the outlet pipe that allows liquids to flow into the drain field. Without a septic tank pumping, your system is at risk for backup and failure. It is best to schedule your septic tank pumping before the liquid level of the tank reaches a high level and “backs up".
How Septic Failure Impacts the Environment
The thought of a failing septic system may make you think of foul odors in your home, slow running toilets or even embarrassing backups in your business. While these setbacks are certainly true, there is also a serious environmental risk involved when a septic system fails or malfunctions.
Septic Repairs Without Digging
Your septic system, including the tank, lines and drain field, are buried several feet underground. It is understandable, therefore, for homeowners to worry when a septic problem arises. Will it mean digging up your yard and disrupting your attractive landscape? Rest assured that modern digital technology has come to save the day when it comes to diagnosing septic repairs.
Does Your Septic Tank Need Enzymes?
If you own a septic tank, you probably know that there are certain things you should avoid if you want to protect its health. However, there are also steps you can take to boost your septic tank condition. Beyond scheduling routine septic tank pumping, you can also take a proactive approach to maintain your septic tank by using an enzyme formula. Adding enzymes to your septic tank keeps the good bacteria working well, and this is critical for its overall function.
