Common Problems associated with Septic Tanks

  • Overflow: The problem of overflow is the common problem associated with the septic tank. This is mainly because of its inefficiency of absorbing the wastewater. Improper drainage can lead to wastewater pooling in the drain field or seeping into the surrounding soil, causing foul odors and potential health hazards.
  • Clogs: Solid waste and non-biodegradable items like wipes, hygiene products, or grease can clog the septic system, leading to backups and potential damage to the tank or pipes.
  • Tree root intrusion: Tree roots can invade the septic system and disrupt the pipes, causing blockages and potential structural damage.
  • Roots of the plants: As the main objective of the septic tank to let the wastewater of your place move ahead to any of the nearby processing plants, there are chances that little plants may come out close to the beneath of the tank. In the beginning, it looks like a natural grass growing around the tank, but at the time passes, the roots of the plants start moving inside the cornerstone of the tank and start damaging it.
  • Chemical misuse: The use of excessive or harmful chemicals (e.g., strong disinfectants, pesticides, or paint thinners) can disrupt the natural bacterial balance in the septic system, hindering wastewater treatment.
  • Wall corrosion: The walls of the tank may crack due to trapping of hydrogen sulfide gas in the compartment tanks.
  • Division of the wall: If the walls of septic tank break into two compartments, there are chances that one of the chambers can trap the sludge and create a problem in the functioning of the tank.

How to Know When Your Septic Tank Needs Pumping

Your septic tank is an essential component of your home’s plumbing system. It collects and treats wastewater from your home, and it’s crucial to keep it well-maintained to avoid costly repairs and backups. One critical aspect of septic tank maintenance is knowing when it needs pumping.

What is a Septic Tank?

A septic tank is an underground tank that collects and treats wastewater from your home. It is typically made of concrete, fiberglass, or polyethylene, and it has two chambers. The first chamber collects and separates solids from the wastewater, while the second chamber treats the wastewater with bacteria.

How Often Should You Pump Your Septic Tank?

The frequency of septic tank pumping depends on the size of your tank and the number of people in your household. As a general rule, it’s recommended to pump your septic tank every 3-5 years. However, if you have a smaller tank or a larger household, you may need to pump more frequently.

Signs Your Septic Tank Needs Pumping:

  1. Slow Drains: If your sinks, toilets, and showers are draining slowly, it could be a sign that your septic tank is full and needs pumping.
  2. Foul Odors: If you notice foul odors coming from your drains or your yard, it could be a sign that your septic tank is full and needs pumping.
  3. Lush Grass: If the grass over your septic tank is growing faster and is greener than the rest of your yard, it could be a sign that your septic tank is overflowing.
  4. Backup: If wastewater is backing up into your home, it’s a clear sign that your septic tank is full and needs pumping immediately.

What to Do When Your Septic Tank Needs Pumping If you notice any of the signs mentioned above, it’s essential to contact us immediately. Avoid using water in your home until the tank is pumped to prevent further damage and backups.

In addition, it’s important to invest in regular septic tank maintenance, such as inspections and pumping, to prevent costly repairs and backups. By investing in septic tank maintenance, you’ll keep your septic system functioning correctly and avoid costly repairs and backups.
