Septic Tank Clean Out

Septic Tank Clean Out

The typical septic tank is a large buried rectangular or cylindrical container made of concrete, fiberglass, or polyethylene. A septic tank’s purpose is to separate solids from the waste-water, store and partially decompose as much solid material as possible, while allowing the liquid (or effluent) to go to the drain field.

Waste-water from your toilet, bath, kitchen, and laundry flows into the tank and remains there for 24 hours (known as the retention time) before it passes into the drain field. This helps prevent any clogging of the drain field, which can lead to future failure and costly repairs.

As the volume of sludge and scum builds up, there is less space and also time for the solids to separate before the waste water leaves the tank, which causes the system to be less effective. With not enough time for solids to settle, they can pass into the drain field with the waste water (or clog the effluent filter, if there is one). This causes the drain field to gradually plug and eventually fail, causing sewage to back up into your home through plumbing fixtures. Also, the closer the thickening scum and sludge layers come to the outlet tees, the greater the risk that they can plug the tank inlet tee or pass into the drain field.
