The septic system is a very important part of a home and must be maintained like the structure of a home. When a septic system fails, it can cause a hazardous situation for the owner and the waterways in the area. A Septic Tank Service Stockbridge GA should be the only ones to perform work on the system.
A common problem for an owner is they do not perform maintenance on the septic system until there is a problem. Overflowing tanks into the drain field can cause wet spots in the yard and a foul smell. Failing to have the tank pumped of solids is usually the cause of this problem.
Pumping A Septic Tank
There is no specific rule about how often a septic tank should be pumped and will need to be checked to determine the level of solids in the tank. A home that only has one or two people using the septic system will not need to be pumped as often as five or more people using the same system. An owner should never let the solids get so high that they push into the drain field or second air injection tank.
How To Eliminate Clogs In The Septic System
The best way an owner can eliminate a septic system from clogs is by reducing or eliminating the number of solids that are put into the drains. Feminine hygiene products should never be flushed into the septic system. Food, grease, and other products should be kept to a minimum.
When the field lines in the drain field are clogged, a Septic Tank Service Stockbridge GA should be contacted. In most cases, the pipes will have to be excavated, and the gravel and pipe will need to be replaced. If an experienced company does not perform this, the sewage could leak into wells and other above or below ground waterways.
Regular maintenance of a septic system will keep it operating at peak performance without the worry of backups into a building or leaching into outside water sources. MTG Services offers all of the septic services an owner needs for installation and repairs.
