What Is a Septic Tank?
Septic tanks are large underground sedimentation tanks that treat wastewater through biological decomposition and drainage. Found in both residential and commercial properties, they are used in properties that are not connected to main local and city sewage lines. They collect the waste in a large watertight tank often made of concrete, plastic, or fiberglass.
Once the waste is in the tank, solids and floating matter separate from the wastewater, and the wastewater is discharged through pipes into a drain field where it is filtered through soil and removed of bacteria. The remainder of the waste remains in the tank, where it will need to be removed through professional septic pumping.
Signs of Septic System Problems
There are a few signs that your septic tank needs to be serviced. Soft, mushy areas of your yard, backing up toilets and drains, and foul odors are three common signs that both home and business owners may experience.
Shirley Septic Pumping recommends having your septic tank pumped every 2 – 3 years with regular use. Septic system sizes and types vary, so the length of time will depend on your system and a few other factors. If you give our team a call, we can help you determine if it’s time to pump your tank. If you’re not due for a pump but are still noticing issues, your system may be in need of a repair or cleaning. We’ll take a look, explain our findings, and propose a solution.
