Your system begins at your home where the main pipe carries the water and waste to the septic tank. As with a sewer line, this pipe can get clogged, crack, or become entangled with tree roots. Every time you run water residue enters into the pipe, no matter how careful you are. The residue builds up inside the pipe, especially if it’s oily, which means clogs. Should your main pipe clog, crack, or fail in some other way, we have the diagnostic equipment to find the problem and fix it.
The main pipe deposits the wastewater into the tank. The solids sink to the bottom, while the scum rises to the top. The average septic tank holds 750 to 1,250 gallons of waste and sludge, which means it will fill to its brim at some point. Most tanks fill within three to five years, but it really boils down to your household and how careful you are with your tank. An overflow of sludge can damage your tank, and your tank can also crack or rust with age.
After the solids are trapped in the tank, wastewater heads through pipes to the drain field where it’s decontaminated and leached into the soil. Because the drain field has pipes, it, too, can clog as the main line can. This is why you should never flush or wash debris, food, hazardous waste, oil, and other harmful things down your toilet or drains. Your drain field can also fail to do its hazardous waste mitigation if you use bleach or other harsh chemicals that kill its useful bacteria.
