Quick guide Septic Do’s and Dont’s

When to Pump a Septic Tank?

The Health Department recommends that septic tanks be cleaned every 3-5 years, to remove the sludge buildup and other accumulated debris. How often your tank will require cleaning depends on the size of the tank and the amount and type of solids entering the tank.

Pumping Your Septic Tank System. Why is it important?

Having your tanks pumped is important maintenance to the system. Solids exiting the house build up in the septic tank and often in the pump tank. If the solids build up too high, they can plug the baffles in your septic tank, causing a backup in the house. Solids can also be forced into your drainfield (or sand/gravel filter, etc.) causing it to plug and fail.

When is it time to pump?

  • There is less than 3″ between the bottom of the floating solids and the bottom of the outlet baffle.
  • There is less than 12″ between the top of the settled solids and the bottom of the outlet baffle.

Septic Tank Pumping Process

  • Open access lid: To begin working on your septic tank, your technician must lift the access lid.
  • Pumping out the septic tank: We suction almost everything from your tank into our vacuum truck during septic pumping Shelton, with the help of a powerful hose.
  • Tank washed out: To remove as much debris as possible, your service provider will use water to flush out the inside of your tank after the septic tank pumping Shelton.
  • Final Inspections: Your technician will inspect your tank for roots or damage after the tank is pumped and cleaned.
  • Reburying and closing the Access Lid: Upon completion of the inspection, the access lid will be closed, and the tank will be covered again.

Signs of a Septic Tank Failure

Slow Drains
Water or other liquids will naturally drain slowly from your drains with issues in the septic tank pumping Shelton. Septic tanks are the real culprit behind clogged drains, regardless of the tools you use to unclog them.

Gurgling Sounds
If you use plumbing appliances, you should also listen to strange sounds. A plumber should be contacted immediately if you hear weird gurgling when flushing your toilet.

Flooding or pooling of water near drain fields
A failed septic tank will no longer absorb wastewater. The ground will naturally absorb wastewater. In the vicinity of the drain field, it can form a large pool of wastewater or cause dampness.

Odorous fumes
A bad smell near the drainfield and plumbing appliances also shows a failing septic system. You may have a failed septic tank if you detect strong, foul odors when you walk outside.

In the absence of a septic pumping port orchard, sludge will eventually accumulate and cause two serious problems. There is a danger that the sludge can clog up the drains from home and cause the sewer lines to back up. It may even cause sewage to flow into the home, clogging sinks and drains and sending horrible odors into the house. Secondly, sludge will seep into the septic field and the soil, poisoning the ground, hurting the environment, and causing horrible odors throughout your property.

There is a risk of solids building up in the tank if the tank is not pumped regularly, which will significantly reduce the tank’s holding capacity.

An effective and quick solution besides septic pumping Shelton. To cleanse the tank, mix a quarter cup of baking soda with a half cup of vinegar and flush it down the drain. One must combine baking soda, vinegar, and lemon juice to use this method.

After washing the septic tank, this solution will also clean the pipes within your system. This natural solution won’t affect the healthy bacteria in your system.
