A Septic tank is a living machine that contains and takes in human waste.
A septic system works likewise to a campfire. Wood in the campfire is subjected to a chemical reaction that leaves ashes as sediment. The septic tank enables matter to be subjected to a biological process that leaves sludge as sediment at the bottom of the tank. In both procedures a large mass of matter is broken down into a little portion of its original volume leaving a little quantity of aspects.
Gradually, the campfire pit will develop a quantity of ashes that will need to be eliminated. Even with the cleanest, hottest fire, some ashes will build up over a time period to a point that they will fill your fire pit. A similar principle holds true with your Septic Tank.
Bacteria is eating away at all the biological product that gets in the tank and will, over a time period, deposit its own waste product that will build up to a point that it, too, will need to be eliminated. This process is incredibly efficient at decreasing matter to its most basic type, and in doing so it takes up the least amount of area in your tank. Adding germs to your tank periodically helps keep the “fire” burning hotter and cleaner.
In addition, it is necessary to be careful about what you put into your tank. Non-biological product that will not be eaten by the germs will build up intact in your tank, like baby wipes, plastic razors, numerous womanly hygiene products, straws, cellophane, elastic band, etc. Likewise, numerous things that are tough for germs to consume also contribute to the early accumulation, like garbage disposal debris, wood products, cotton, high strength toilet paper and so on.
Likewise, numerous substances that make their method into your system can hurt or eliminate the germs that live in your tank. Antibiotic use, (I‘ve heard that about 60% of what is taken is eliminated of the body), excess use of bleach, antibacterial cleaners and other family products. Adding germs periodically will replenish the germs colonies in your tank and reduce smells and tank volume build-ups.

Your Septic tank can be completely out of mind, and primarily out of sight, until the day arrives when you have sewage and water running, and seeping out of what appears like all over.
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 development in the lawn near your septic tank; backups and obstructions; water draining pipes slowly from the most affordable drainage point in your house (typically a sunken shower or tub); etc
. When many people buy a home with a Septic tank, they normally are provided little or no information on its care. My experience has been that, frequently, sellers prevent any reference of the Septic tank, especially if they have had any concerns with it, or perhaps they do not even understand where it is or much about it themselves.
A Lot Of Homes with Septic Systems that were built since the year “2000” have an additional integrated in booby trap for property owners. Federal DEQ requirements have mandated that an effluent filter be set up at the discharge end of the septic system to prevent suspended solids from going into the leach system, consequently safeguarding the Leach System. However, they ignored 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 incidents and have yet to discover a consumer that had even a hint that the filter existed or that this might result.
