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?
Septic tanks are large tanks that act as sewage containers for rural homes. They can also be made out of concrete or fibreglass. Septic tanks are generally used in houses that are far away from cities, this is because they aren’t close enough to the main sewage system. In general, septic tanks vary in size, depending on the size of the property, as well as the number of possible users. But this is not to say that those living in or around Gloucester do not have septic tanks themselves.
Septic tanks work by filtering out the liquid waste, the solid waste is then left and begins to break down over time. Bacteria begins to break this waste down over time, which allows for more waste to be stored in the septic tank.
WHEN SHOULD I EMPTY MY SEPTIC TANK?
Although it is clear that your septic will eventually need replacement, you may be wondering when exactly the best time to do this is. One of the main indications that your septic tank may need emptying is that the tank begins to emit an unpleasant smell. It should be obvious what this smell is, and in this event, it is a good idea to contact the professionals as soon as you notice this. Especially in the Gloucester area, you may have neighbours and do not want to disturb them with any unpleasant smells.
Another thing to look out for is whether you have noticed a recent reduction in pressure in your pipes. If you suddenly see that less water is coming from your pipes, make sure to call the professionals to see whether your septic tank needs emptying or perhaps replacement or to be repaired.
CAN I EMPTY A SEPTIC TANK MYSELF?
Although technically, yes you can empty your septic tank yourself, it is definitely advised that you call a professional to do so. Although many people may have a septic tank in their home, septic tanks can be incredibly confusing to deal with. Any damage done to your septic tank can also cost a lot to replace or repair, so it may not be a great idea to risk damaging the septic tank if you don’t know enough about it.
HOW CAN I PREVENT ANY DAMAGE TO THE SEPTIC TANK?
As previously mentioned, maintenance and upkeep of septic tanks are incredibly important. After all, septic tanks can be quite expensive to replace, prevention is, therefore, the most effective option. Often damage can be done to your septic tank by throwing the wrong items away. For example, throwing away paper towels and sanitary products should be avoided at all costs as they can clog the system.
