A Septic System is a living machine that contains and consumes human waste.
A septic tank works similarly to a campfire. Wood in the campfire undergoes a chemical reaction that leaves ashes as sediment. The septic system permits matter to be subjected to a biological process that leaves sludge as sediment at the bottom of the tank. In both processes a big mass of matter is broken down into a little fraction of its initial volume leaving a little amount of elements.
Over time, the campfire pit will build up an amount of ashes that will need to be eliminated. Even with the cleanest, most popular fire, some ashes will collect over a time period to a point that they will fill your fire pit. A similar principle holds true with your Sewage-disposal tank.
Bacteria is eating away at all the biological product that enters the tank and will, over a time period, deposit its own waste product that will collect to a point that it, too, will need to be eliminated. This process is exceptionally effective at decreasing matter to its most basic form, and in doing so it uses up the least amount of space in your tank. Including germs to your tank occasionally helps keep the “fire” burning hotter and cleaner.
Furthermore, it is essential to be cautious about what you take into your tank. Non-biological product that will not be consumed by the germs will collect intact in your tank, like child wipes, plastic razors, lots of womanly health products, straws, cellophane, elastic band, etc. Likewise, lots of things that are challenging for germs to consume also add to the premature build-up, like garbage disposal debris, wood products, cotton, high strength bathroom tissue and the like.
Likewise, lots of substances that make their method into your system can harm or eliminate the germs that live in your tank. Antibiotic use, (I have actually heard that about 60% of what is taken is flushed out of the body), excess use of bleach, anti-bacterial cleaners and other family products. Including germs occasionally will replenish the germs colonies in your tank and decrease smells and tank volume build-ups.

Your Septic System can be totally out of mind, and mostly out of sight, till the day gets here when you have sewage and water running, and seeping out of what appears like all over.
Signs of a stopping working system can be very subtle. Drain smell, both inside and outdoors your house; bubbling in the toilet when it’s flushed; puddles or unexplained plant development in the backyard near your septic system; backups and blockages; water draining pipes slowly from the most affordable drain point in your home (typically a sunken shower or tub); etc
. When many people buy a house with a Septic System, they normally are provided little or no information on its care. My experience has been that, usually, sellers prevent any mention of the Septic System, particularly if they have actually had any concerns with it, or possibly they do not even know where it is or much about it themselves.
A Lot Of Homes with Septic Systems that were built given that the year “2000” have actually an extra integrated in booby trap for house owners. Federal DEQ requirements have actually mandated that an effluent filter be installed at the discharge end of the sewage-disposal tank to prevent suspended solids from entering the leach system, therefore securing the Leach System. Nevertheless, they overlooked to mandate access to clean the filter and prevent triggering a backup into the house. As of this writing, I have actually serviced more than a hundred such events and have yet to find a client that had even a clue that the filter existed or that this could result.
