Emptying your septic tank regularly is extremely important and should not be overlooked or forgotten.
A septic tank is an underground, hidden watertight chamber that many commercial and industrial businesses keep to have control over their usage and storage of wastewater. Whether this is made of plastic, concrete or fiberglass, this chamber is able to collect sewage and wastewater produced by drains within the home that are not connected to main sewer systems. They are far more common in rural areas than in big cities, meaning we are in much more need with surrounding areas such as the Cotswold being in close proximity.
Failing to clean and empty your septic tank can lead to a number of unpleasant problems and issues that you will most certainly want to avoid, which is why it is very important to get clued up when it comes to your septic system. Not having your tank emptied can lead to blockages and damage, with overflows also found to be a common issue. This can result in the tank smelling extremely potent, with it slowing your drainage and making wastewater back up into your household.
WHAT ARE SEPTIC TANKS USED FOR?
Without going into too much detail, septic tanks are sewage containers, generally made out of plastic, concrete or fibreglass. They are commonly used in rural homes rather than in properties built in the city. This is because properties out in the countryside will often be too far from the main sewage system. Septic tanks can vary greatly in size and can often actually be rather large, depending on the size of the property.
SO HOW DO SEPTIC TANKS WORK?
If you have ever wondered how septic tanks work, the concept is actually pretty simple. Any waste that passes through is filtered out, leaving only solid waste. This solid waste then breaks down over time, therefore allowing more waste to be stored in the septic tank. Most of this waste is actually broken down over time by bacteria.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I EMPTY MY SEPTIC TANK?
In order to avoid any damage in the future, your septic tank should regularly be emptied. But when exactly should your septic tank be emptied. If you have recently moved into a rural property, it is suggested that you hire an expert to come out regularly to check. Other than this, there are also some signs that you should look out for to see whether your septic tank needs emptying.
One thing to look out for is reduced pressure in the pipes. One indication that your septic tank may need emptying is that if less water is coming from your pipes. If you do notice this, don’t delay, call the professionals today to see whether or not your septic tank needs to be emptied.
