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.
One much more obvious thing to look out for whether or not there is an unpleasant smell coming from the septic tank. If you do notice this, it is recommended that you contact a professional as this can often lead to damage to the tank or a leak in the tank which can be a lot more expensive to fix.
Emptying A Septic Tank
Emptying a septic tank may not be the most glamorous of tasks, but in today’s world where a seemingly endless amount of information is at your fingertips, you may be tempted to empty your septic tank yourself. Although you technically could do this, it is definitely recommended that you hire a professional. Septic tanks are very confusing to deal with and any damage caused to them by lack of knowledge can end up costing a lot of money in repairs later down the line.
Maintaining a Septic Tank
In order to avoid having to fork out money on septic tank repairs, regular maintenance and care should be taken to minimise any damage done to the septic tank. A lot of damage can be caused to your septic tank by not taking the proper care to avoid throwing away certain items. For example, paper towels and sanitary products should not be thrown away. These items can end up clogging the pipes and will eventually damage the septic tank.
