How does the septic system and tank even work?
Understanding the process and how it works is key to providing a well-functioning system.
How Septic Tank Services Work
As waste enters the septic tank, bacteria will actively break down the waste, which leaves water behind that can percolate down in the ground. Your septic system depends on bacteria to do its job well. The bacteria lives down in the drain field and in the septic tank.
All waste which flows in your septic tank is called effluent. As bacteria breaks down organic materials, it will form a layer of sludge down on the bottom of the tank. The sludge is made up of inorganic solids, as well as the bacteria byproducts.
While sludge will fall to the bottom, there is a layer of scum that floats up to the top. This scum is made of grease, fat, and oils. Your septic tank works just as a settling pond.
Each septic system will have a filter which stops the majority of solids from entering an outlet pipe, leading to the drain field. The drain field is a big surface in which bacteria feeds on the effluent, and as the treated water will seep into the ground. Pipes that carry the treated water have holes for the water to effectively drain while the surrounding gravel around the pipes allow for oxygen to reach the bacteria.
Along with the assistance of bacteria, the waste will be decomposed; the water will be returned to the groundwater.

Maintaining Your Septic Tank
Bacteria is vital to the septic system, as mentioned above. By using harsh household chemicals consistently in a large quantity, it will kill off the necessary bacteria that is needed in the drain field and septic tank. Without the organisms, the waste won’t be able to be broken down.
You can potentially cause harm to the septic system when flushing waste down that takes a great deal of time to decompose. Flushing cigarette butts, coffee grounds, and diapers, for example, will potentially cause harm to the septic system. Additional issues can stem from an overused garbage disposal, as well as synthetic lint fibers from a washing machine.
By sending a large quantity of waste water over a short time frame can cause the tank to flush out too fast. By having too much sludge within the tank can interfere with bacteria and its ability to break down any waste and to seep out into the drain field where it can clog pipes and holes.
The roots of brushes and trees of your landscape may create root intrusion within the drain field, leading to potential damage if it is left unchecked; this is actually the most common cause of a clogged sewer.
Plumbing Service Company provides septic tank pumping for commercial and residential locations. By pumping the tank, it will remove the scum and sludge accumulation. Your tank should be pumped once every year; however, some tanks can wait to be pumped every three years. The timeframe depends on the size of your tank and how much waste is being ran through your tank. A professional can help you determine the most logical timeframe that is right for your specific system.
