How your septic system operates:

A septic tank holds solid waste until it is liquefied or pumped out. While a drain field, otherwise known as leach field, is a network of pipes punched with holes and buried in trenches that are surrounded by gravel. The drain field is connected to the septic tank which is intended to get rid of impurities and toxins from the liquid that flows out of the septic tank. The majority of septic tanks are made of concrete, plastic, or fiberglass. These tanks can last up to 50 years. However, a septic tank that is not maintained properly can cause serious trouble, including risks to your health.

Common problems with septic systems:

Some objects that get flushed down the toilet can cause problems for the septic system. Objects such as plastics or cigarette butts will go into septic tank and stay there until it is pumped out. Since plastic does not dissolve, it can clog things up and cause septic tanks to overflow into your yard or even worse inside your home!

Soaps, detergents, and other household cleaners are also usually bad news for the septic system. These substances can cause the soil to harden around the drain field which lessens the soils absorbent capacity. That same effect can be produced by lots of grease being introduced into the septic system. When the soil is no longer able to properly absorb liquid, waste water will often flow back into the septic tank, or even worse, into your home or business.

How to keep a septic tank and drain field in good working condition

Be sure to have your septic tank pumped out every 2-5 years depending on its size and occupants living in the household. A regular pumping and cleaning schedule will help to prevent a disaster that could be messy, hazardous to your health, and expensive to fix.
