Indications of Septic Tank Backup
Tree roots growing into your pipes and breaking them apart, or a clog in your septic tank line will cause waste to backup into your home. There are some obvious indications of septic tank back up, such as sewage backup in toilets or drains or a sewage odour in your home. Other indicators of a backup include several slow drains in the house, poorly flushing toilets, and lush vegetation growing over your septic system when the surrounding area is dry. If you have any of these problems, it’s important to call a professional plumbing service, such as Christian Brothers Plumbing, Air Conditioning, and Electrical to come service your septic system.
Septic Tank Care
To keep your septic system in good working order, some simple guidelines will help extend the life of your system. First, do not use excessive amounts of water or household cleaners. These will dilute the ability of the bacteria in the septic tank to break down the waste. Secondly, items that do not break down are not to be put in the septic tank. These will fill up the septic tank quickly and can also clog pipes. Examples of these items are feminine hygiene products, coffee grounds, baby wipes, and cooking fats. Septic tanks should be pumped and cleaned every one to three years, depending on the tank size, the climate in which it is located, and the volume of waste and wastewater entering the septic tank.
Other Septic Tank Tips
It’s important to space out your water usage. Try, for example, to do one load of laundry per day, rather than all your laundry on the same day. This will allow the septic tank bacteria to recover. Don’t park a vehicle, locate a shed, or place any other extremely heavy object over the septic area. The weight load can damage the tank and pipes. If you have a garbage disposal, don’t use it often. It can cause clogs in the lines, which leads to increased water waste. It is a good idea to have your tank pumped annually if you have a garbage disposal.
