Septic Tank Systems
Your septic tank is a large watertight container that is buried beneath the ground. It is tasked with holding all of your wastewater from your kitchen, laundry room and bathrooms. In the tank, the solid materials settle and accumulate at the bottom. These solids are reduced to sludge and gasses with the help of bacteria. Lighter solids, like oils, fats and grease, rise to the top and form a layer of scum. The solids that don’t decompose need to be pumped out on a regular basis.
Failure to have your septic tank regularly serviced leads to solid waste buildup, which can cause overflow and extensive damage to your property and septic system. It is recommended that you have your septic tank inspected annually and have your tank pumped every two to three years.
