Learning About Septic Services

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.

    The thought of taking responsibility for the proper handling and disposal of the raw sewage produced by your family is a terrifying one for most homeowners. After all, there is a lot at stake if something goes wrong. For example, raw sewage could back up into your home and do thousands of dollars in damage. Or your septic drain field could become overloaded and fail without warning, allowing bacteria-laden gray water and effluent to pool on the surface of a neighbor's land.

    The residential septic system is something of a low-tech wonder. Most use only the powers of gravity and natural bacterial actions to remove and digest solid and liquid waste produced in the home. When correctly designed, using high-quality components, and then carefully installed, the average system can be expected to last through many years of service. In fact, some experts believe that a properly maintained septic system can remain functional for a half century or perhaps even longer.

  • How to Stay Safe with a Septic Tank

    28 December 2018

    A septic tank is one of the most useful parts of your home, even if you never see it or interact with it. All the proof of this you need is quite evident whenever there is a problem with your plumbing. Unfortunately, septic tanks aren't just useful; they are also quite dangerous. Waste is broken down in the septic tank by bacteria, and this releases methane. Methane is a highly flammable gas that is actually one of the key components of the gases used for cooking and heating around the house.

  • What to Do If Your Septic Tank Overflows

    An overflowing septic tank is one of the most serious plumbing emergencies you could have. Not only is the overflowing tank an eyesore, but it also creates an incredibly unhygienic condition. The foul water may end up inside your basement, in your garden, or even in your water if you use an underground well. What you do immediately after such an event will be crucial for determining how serious the issue is and how much damage it causes.

  • Cleaning Your Commercial Grease Trap More Often Than Every Three Months? Here's Why

    26 October 2018

    It's common to find local and state regulations that require you to clean out a commercial grease trap about every three months (or ninety days, to be more exact). However, if you've been cleaning yours out more often because of odor formation or slow drainage, you need to find out why your grease trap is becoming overwhelmed by grease so quickly. Technically you should be able to go a few months without problems; even if you're legally required to clean it out on a ninety-day schedule, you shouldn't smell anything bad, nor should you have trouble with sink drainage.
