Your Septic Tank
You may not realize how vital your home’s septic tank is to your daily life until something goes wrong with it. When that happens you need to call in an expert that you can trust who is familiar with the intricacies of septic systems. Vietzke Trenchless is just such an expert in Spokane.
The septic tank is a sealed container buried underground that is designed to collect and hold waste from your home. While the waste is held in the septic tank, solid waste settles to the bottom to decompose and the remaining solids form sludge while grease, fats and soap suds float to the top in the form of scum.
Care and Maintenance Of Your Septic Tank
The leading cause of the septic system failure is neglect or misuse. For that reason, regular inspection emptying and cleaning of your septic tank by a professional as it’s critical to its health. An excessive accumulation of sludge and scum can clog the drainfield and cause a backup of waste into your home or other significant damage.
Septic Tank Tips
In addition to having your septic tank inspected and cleaned on a regular basis, here are a few other things to keep in mind that will help to keep your system working well.
Be mindful of what goes into your septic system: avoid the use of bleach, drain cleaners and other caustic products as these kill the bacteria in the tank that promotes the decomposition of solid waste. Do not dispose of household items like feminine hygiene products, dental floss and condoms in your septic system, as these will clog pipes and the drain field.
Keep excessive weight away from the septic system area: do not allow vehicles or livestock to go where your septic tank and drainfield are located. Excessive weight can harm the pipes and tank, and drainage can become more difficult under compacted soil.
Avoid excessive water flow: too much water flowing into the septic tank can disturb the sludge and allow solids to pass into the drain field, resulting in clogs. Installing low flow showerheads, low flush toilets, and repairing leaky faucets immediately, as well as being mindful of your water use, will go along way towards addressing this issue.
