Nowadays, Septic tanks are used in homes, businesses and anywhere where you there’s little or no access to the sewage system. There are two types of septic containers. These are cement septic tanks and plastic septic tanks. These tanks are simply underground treatment systems for household sewage. A typical septic tank system is made up of four components: A pipe that comes from the house, A tank, soil, and a drain field. A malfunction or a slight damage of any of these septic tank components can result to system failure. This can lead to water and soil contamination accompanied by costly repairs by the homeowner. This is why you should hire Sevierville Septic Tank Pumping services to do septic maintenance services at your home.
The septic tank pumping process
The process of pumping a septic tank involves using a large exhauster truck that has hoses and suction pumps. The hoses are lowered into the septic tank opening to remove the sludge and scum that has accumulated. The truck sucks all the scum and sludge into the tank via the hosepipe before later disposing of the waste in an approved place and manner. After pumping your septic tank, our Sevierville Septic Tank Pumping services will inspect the valves, reservoir, and the ground around the septic tank to assess for clogged areas and leaks. Damaged areas will be brought to your attention, and appropriate solutions will be suggested.
Septic tank problems
Common septic tank problems include:
• Overflowing septic tanks- Your tank should always be less than two-thirds full.
• Too much sludge and scum in the tank- If solid sludge and scum are not emptied in time, the build-up can cause clogging in the absorption trenches.
• Water flowing too quickly into the septic tank- This is where liquid effluent enters the septic tank too quickly before bacteria have a chance of working on them. This allows solid contaminants to get into the system, which not only pollutes the septic tank but also ends up clogging up the absorption field.
• Harmful chemicals- The bacteria in septic tank systems may be destroyed by harmful chemicals that are poured down the drain. These chemicals include solvents, bleaches, oils, pesticides, and other household cleaning products that enter the system.
