Understanding Your Septic System Better

Understanding Your Septic System Better

Knowing how your septic system functions can save you from unnecessary costs and breakdowns. And to top it off, you can even prolong its service life. That’s why Vietzke Trenchless always makes it a point to educate our clients on this vital function of your home’s plumbing system.

Components of a Septic System

Septic systems are made up of two major components. These are a leach field, which may sometimes be referenced as a drain field, where water disperses, and a tank where particles collect at the bottom.

Gravity transports wastewater from the home to the septic tank and subsequently to the drain field in a traditional septic system. Septic tanks are underground boxes that usually comprise fiberglass, polyethylene, or concrete. Water accumulates there for a long enough time for the components to separate.

Reliable Septic Tank Services

Oil and grease rise to the top of the system while the solids fall to the bottom. Every few years, you will need septic tank services from a company like ours. We come and pump out the scum and sludge and then transport it to a legalized dumping location.

Vietzke Trenchless specializes in septic tank installation in Coeur d'Alene, ID. We have a team of well-trained professionals who will install the system for you and help educate you on its functions and best care practices to ensure its longevity. 

The Need for Septic Tank Repair or Replacement

The life expectancy of septic systems ranges between 25 to 30 years but can go beyond it with regular maintenance. You may sometimes need septic tank repair procedures if your system has issues such as broken pipes and other such complications.

If the drain field is faulty or beat, merely repairing your septic network will prove to be insufficient, and septic tank replacement may instead be necessary. The cost will vary, depending on the extent of the damage.

For stress-free, cost-effective installation, repair, or replacement of the septic system in your home, contact us today at Vietzke Trenchless. We look forward to addressing your septic issues for good.
