Your septic system contains four main components: a pipe running from your home, the tank, a drain field, and soil. The tube running from your home is simple to understand. It carries all of your home's wastewater from the house to the septic tank.
The septic tank is generally made from fiberglass, polyethylene, or concrete. This tank is a watertight container buried in the ground. This container is used to hold wastewater from your home. In this tank, the solids settle out or form sludge, and the oil and grease float to the top as a scum layer.
During this time, the solid materials will begin a partial decomposition. Individual compartments and a t-shaped outlet prevent this sludge and scum from leaving the septic tank. Many septic tank manufacturers also include screens to prevent the solids from leaving the tank.
If your septic tank is newer, our technician will be able to find it by the risers with lids at the ground level. These risers make it easy to inspect and pump the tank. One of the necessary routine services required is removing the sludge and scum from the container by pumping it out.
Our experts understand this process and can provide you with a working schedule to prevent buildup, which may keep the septic tank from good working order. The third component of a septic system is the drain field, sometimes referred to as a leach field.
This drain field is where wastewater exits the tank. It is discharged in the area to be further treated by the surrounding soil. As the wastewater exits the tank, it is pushing partially-treated sewage further into the drain field.
As the wastewater is pushed through the area, it continues to be treated until it reaches the groundwater. By the time this wastewater reaches the groundwater, the soil has completed the purification process, and the wastewater is safe to enter the groundwater.
If wastewater overloads the drain field, it can cause flooding, which causes sewage to flow to the ground surface or back up into your home. The final aspect of the septic system is the soil, which removes harmful viruses, bacteria, and nutrients before the wastewater reaches the groundwater.
If any of these four components malfunction, it can be an expensive fix. Our experts will guide you through the necessary steps you should take as a homeowner to help your system continue running correctly between the scheduled maintenance calls. Call us today to schedule an appointment.
