Welcome to my site. My name is Jorge. The septic company sent a notice to my home recently about pumping out the tank. After living in my home for a few years, it was time to service the septic tank to keep it in good condition for years afterward. I watched in awe as the septic truck cleared the tank and restored the function of the system. I will use this site to discuss the process of servicing the septic tank. I will also talk about repairs commonly performed on the septic components. I hope you will visit often to learn more.
Your septic system is an amazing system that is able to break down raw sewage. There are many different things that you need to do in order to keep that system up and running at maximum capacity. There are many mistakes that people make in regards to their septic system. This article is going to outline a few different aspects of a septic system, and what you are going to want to do to keep it functioning properly. Here are just three aspects of keeping your septic system in good condition.
Careful How You Unclog Drains
A drain can become clogged for a few different reasons, but most of the time people try to get rid of them the same way. The most popular way to get rid of a clog is to use the liquid that blasts through clogs. This is a great way to get rid of a clog, but it could have some negative affects on your septic system. The liquid has many harsh chemicals that can kill the bacteria that make a living in your septic system. The reason that this is a problem is because those bacteria are what break down the sewage. If they are dead, then you could have a septic system that is backed up in a matter of months.
Careful What You Drain And Flush
When things in your septic system start getting backed up, you are going to need to call a technician to come and pump you septic system. They will be able to clean it out and pump everything out. One of the most common reasons that a septic system is backed up is that the homeowner flushed or drained to many non-biodegradable products. Some of the most common things to find in a septic system are baby wipes, condoms, gum, plastic wrappers and more. Just do not flush it if it does not belong.
Locate Your Tank
It is going to be very important that you locate your tank. If you are parking your truck or car on your tank, and you do not know it, you could be causing a lot of damage to the tank. Once you find the tank you may want to safeguard it. If you find that your tank is located in your yard, then you are going to want to landscape around the tank to protect it. It is also important to know where the tank is just in case your plumber needs to perform some maintenance on your tank.
