We want to help you understand your septic tank system so that it is properly maintained to avoid potential costly repairs in the future. Actually, septic tank systems are quite simple. All of the drains in your home converge to a single pipe that leads to the septic tank that is buried somewhere on your property. When the waste waters from your kitchen sinks, showers, dishwasher or washing machine leave your home they all combine. And, when it all hits the septic tank it all separates.
The heaviest matter in the waste water, which is called sludge, separates and sinks to the bottom of the septic tank. At the top of the septic tank the oils, fats and proteins form the scum layer. So, what we have remaining in your septic tank is the middle section which is a comparatively clear level which is typically called gray water. This is the basic three section part of your septic tank with liquids, scum and sludge.
We recommend that homeowners monitor their septic tanks by keeping track of when the septic tank has been pumped. Homeowners should make a written note of when their septic tanks are pumped. Usually, septic tanks are pumped every three years, but sometimes a septic tank requires being pumped sooner than the three year mark if there is a need due to increased home activity. If a homeowner takes in more family or friends, or increasing home entertainment, or increases the use of the dishwasher or washing machine, then the septic tank may require pumping in 1-2 years.
Harrison Plumbing can inspect the level of scum and sludge in your septic tank and determine when the septic tank will need to be pumped. It is more cost-effective to have a septic tank and drain field inspection than to have your waste water system back up leading to expensive repair costs. Harrison Plumbing values your business and is available to answer any of your septic tank system questions.
