How Your Septic Tank Works
About one-quarter of homes in the United States utilize a septic system. They are more common in rural areas without access to municipal sewer services. Instead of having the waste directed to a sewage treatment plant, the septic system directs the waste into a septic tank and drainage field. Properly looked after, your septic system can be a very effective and environmentally friendly way to handle waste.
First, the waste is directed into the septic tank with the help of good old-fashioned gravity or an electric pump. The tank is gradually filled over time – solid waste settles to the bottom, scum floats to the top. Once the tank is filled, the effluent is drained out through a series of pipes into the drain field. The waste is carefully dispersed out of the porous pipe system and out into strategically placed gravel and soil.
The functionality of your septic tank system is predicated on the effective bacterial breakdown of the waste. You want to stay away from bacteria in many cases, but in terms of a septic system, bacteria is your best friend. It breaks down the waste, digests it, and when maintained correctly, can make for an almost closed waste management system. The bacterial breakdown begins in the septic tank and continues throughout the process until the water is drained out. By the time the waste filters down to the waterline, it will be sterile.
Septic Tank Service: Cleaning and Pumping
The trick to having a well-functioning septic system for years to come is to have your system looked after frequently to be pumped and cleaned. Every septic system varies in that it will require different cleaning schedules. You should also leave your septic cleaning to the professionals. It is safe for a homeowner to lift the lid of their septic system if they are wearing gloves, but one should never enter the system—inside of it are many harmful gasses.
Even though the bacteria in the system will do most of the heavy lifting with the breakdown of waste, eventually the system should still be emptied by our professional team as it will have accumulated quite a lot of sludge. If you have an electrical pump system, it will need to be looked after more often than one without. Either way, now and then it is healthy to make sure that the whole system is cleared out. This will make sure that, in case there is any septic problem, you will not have to face dangerous gasses or human waste that could be released.
If you have a septic system in Corpus Christi and you do not yet have a team of septic cleaning pros you can count on, get in touch with our helpful team today. We look forward to your call.
Septic Tank Maintenance
Some sources may tell you to have your septic tank pumped every 3-5 years, but realistically, there is no one-size-fits-all solution for how to properly care for your septic tank. It is always smart to follow guidelines set out by the manufacturer, but sometimes these recommendations don't suit your septic system.
If you don’t know if it is the right time to have your septic tank serviced, contact Septic Pro Pumping. After all, your septic tank allows waste to be navigated out of your home or business and mitigates the spread of viruses, disease, and pathogens.
Some Septic Tank Maintenance Tips:
- Use a high-efficiency toilet (less water helps your system work better)
- Reduce solid wastes
- Direct your rain gutters away from the septic system
- Don’t flush chemicals down the drain
- Don’t drain a hot tub or washing machine into the system
