Maintaining your Septic System and How to Avoid Septic Tank Problems
Your septic system is comprised of two basic systems that work together. You have the tank and the drain field. The septic tank is the key component of your septic system and is part of a centralized sewer system underground where wastewater goes from your residential or commercial structure. The drain field is one of the most critical components of your septic system. Here, wastewater from your home and/or business makes its final stop and is naturally absorbed into the ground. The easiest way to make sure that your septic system continues to function properly, is by having annual inspections.The easiest way to make sure that they continue to function is proper maintenance. If you have it checked out on a regular basis, a septic system should give you years of good service. Make sure to get it pumped out and cleaned regularly.
If you don't maintain your septic system, you will not only need to replace the entire septic tank, but you will be required to make sure that the ground dirt in the area is trucked out and properly disposed of, as it will be contaminated.
Be aware of the common household cleaning products you use. You want to make sure they are septic system friendly. The sodium content in many cleaners can cause clay elements in the soil to harden and this lessens the absorbent capacity of the soil. Grease and some organic matter can sit in the tank and form a tar-like layer called a Biomat. This will thicken over time into a hard waterproof layer that can prevent water from being properly leached into the soil. When soil no longer drains properly, it will fill the tank and can even flow backwards into your home.
Are you buying or selling your home? We have a technician who will come out to inspect and certify your septic system. You can always rely on Benjamin Franklin to maintain your septic system.
