Maintaining Your Septic System

You may be wondering why it is so necessary to maintain your septic system. If you live in an environment where septic systems are the predominant form of household waste water disposal, I am sure you have read, seen, or even personally witnessed the horrors of septic system failure. The costs of this device failure can be astronomical. It is also not an inexpensive method to clean up after such a failure.Poop Dudes, Chattanooga offers excellent info on this.

What factors do you remember when looking for septic system service?

All such devices should be inspected and pumped every 3 to 5 years, according to experts. This is a traditional business rule of thumb. The frequency of your inspection can be determined by the tank’s size and the amount of household waste water it processes.

A smaller septic tank cannot contain or filter the same amount of household waste as a larger one. If you are uncertain about the size and position of your tank, your service provider will assist you in locating both the tank and the drain area, as well as determining the tank’s size.

The device processes the amount of household waste water determined by the number of people in the household and the amount of waste water used by each of them. In most households, toilet flushing is the most significant source of waste water disposal. If your home is more than 20 years old, the original bathroom fixtures will still be there. If the bathroom fixtures are older, the toilets would most likely use 3 to 5 gallons of water per flush. Newer, more powerful models need only around 1.5 gallons per flush. You may add “Johnny dams,” which are small plastic dams that are inserted into the toilet tank, to minimise the amount of water used per flush. These dams separate the water used in the flushing process, reducing the amount of water required to complete this job.
