A Septic System is a living device which contains and consumes human waste.
A septic system works similarly to a campfire. Wood in the campfire undergoes a chain reaction that leaves ashes as sediment. The septic system allows matter to be subjected to a biological procedure that leaves sludge as sediment at the bottom of the tank. In both procedures a big mass of matter is broken down into a small fraction of its initial volume leaving a small quantity of aspects.
Gradually, the campfire pit will build up a quantity of ashes that will require to be removed. Even with the cleanest, most popular fire, some ashes will collect over a period of time to a point that they will fill your fire pit. A similar idea holds true with your Septic Tank.
Bacteria is eating away at all the biological product that enters the tank and will, over a period of time, deposit its own waste product that will collect to a point that it, too, will require to be removed. This procedure is extremely efficient at lowering matter to its simplest form, and in doing so it takes up the least amount of area in your tank. Including bacteria to your tank periodically helps keep the “fire” burning hotter and cleaner.
Furthermore, it is very important to be mindful about what you take into your tank. Non-biological product that will not be eaten by the bacteria will collect intact in your tank, like infant wipes, plastic razors, numerous feminine hygiene products, straws, cellophane, rubber bands, etc. Also, numerous things that are difficult for bacteria to consume also add to the early accumulation, like garbage disposal debris, wood products, cotton, high strength toilet paper and the like.
Also, numerous substances that make their way into your system can damage or eliminate the bacteria that reside in your tank. Antibiotic usage, (I‘ve heard that about 60% of what is taken is flushed out of the body), excess usage of bleach, antibacterial cleaners and other home products. Including bacteria periodically will replenish the bacteria nests in your tank and decrease smells and tank volume accumulations.

Your Septic System can be absolutely out of mind, and mainly out of sight, up until the day shows up when you have sewage and water running, and permeating out of what looks like everywhere.
Symptoms of a stopping working system can be very subtle. Drain smell, both within and outside your house; bubbling in the toilet when it’s flushed; puddles or inexplicable plant growth in the lawn near your septic system; backups and clogs; water draining gradually from the lowest drain point in your home (typically a sunken shower or tub); etc
. When the majority of people buy a house with a Septic tank, they normally are given little or no details on its care. My experience has been that, most often, sellers prevent any reference of the Septic System, particularly if they have had any problems with it, or perhaps they do not even understand where it is or much about it themselves.
Most Houses with Septic Systems that were built because the year “2000” have an extra integrated in booby trap for house owners. Federal DEQ requirements have mandated that an effluent filter be installed at the discharge end of the septic tank to prevent suspended solids from going into the leach system, consequently protecting the Leach System. However, they overlooked to mandate access to clean the filter and prevent triggering a backup into the house. As of this writing, I have serviced more than a hundred such events and have yet to find a customer that had even an idea that the filter existed or that this could result.
