Septic Cleaning Services-An Overview

A properly designed, constructed and maintained septic system should be virtually trouble free. Unfortunately things do go wrong and problems with the septic tank are usually the cause. But since they are buried, out of sight out of mind so to speak, it’s not until a nasty odor starts to hang over the property that the homeowner is aware that something is amiss.

Septic Tank System Design-Designing a septic tank system is an important part of building a home that does not have access to a city sewer system. In fact serious consideration must be given to where the septic system should be placed on any property before the final house design is decided on. Doing so can mean saving thousands of dollars on the design and construction of the septic system.

Septic Tank Maintenance-Living the rural lifestyle has its advantages for those who wish to avoid the hustle and bustle of a more urban environment. It also means that certain services aren’t readily available including access to a municipal sewage system. In these cases a self contained waste management system or septic system is needed and the septic tank is the most important part of this system. It only makes sense then that regular maintenance is an important part of keeping the tank and the rest of the system in good working order.

If the pumping contractor has to dig down to find the lid this can add to the cost of the service. This is also the perfect opportunity to install a riser to avoid this issue for future pump outs. The liquid waste leaves the tank through an outlet pipe and continues to the absorption field, also called the leach field, where an entrenchment of piping discharges excess water into the ground soil through multiple drainage holes.
