A Septic System is a living machine which contains and takes in human waste.
A septic tank works likewise to a campfire. Wood in the campfire undergoes a chain 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 processes a large mass of matter is broken down into a small fraction of its initial volume leaving a small quantity of aspects.
Over time, the campfire pit will develop a quantity of ashes that will require to be gotten rid of. Even with the cleanest, hottest fire, some ashes will collect over a period of time to a point that they will fill your fire pit. A comparable principle is true with your Septic system.
Germs is gnawing at all the biological material that goes into the tank and will, over a period of time, deposit its own waste material that will collect to a point that it, too, will require to be gotten rid of. This process is exceptionally efficient at minimizing matter to its simplest type, and in doing so it uses up the least amount of space in your tank. Adding bacteria to your tank occasionally assists keep the “fire” burning hotter and cleaner.
Furthermore, it is essential to be cautious about what you take into your tank. Non-biological material that will not be eaten by the bacteria will collect undamaged in your tank, like baby wipes, plastic razors, numerous womanly hygiene items, straws, cellophane, elastic band, etc. Also, numerous things that are tough for bacteria to take in also add to the early build-up, like waste disposal unit particles, wood items, cotton, high strength toilet tissue 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 use, (I‘ve heard that about 60% of what is taken is eliminated of the body), excess use of bleach, antibacterial cleaners and other household items. Adding bacteria occasionally will renew the bacteria nests in your tank and decrease odors and tank volume accumulations.

Your Septic tank can be completely out of mind, and mainly out of sight, until the day shows up when you have sewage and water running, and leaking out of what appears like all over.
Symptoms of a failing system can be extremely subtle. Sewage system odor, both inside and outdoors your home; bubbling in the toilet when it’s flushed; puddles or inexplicable plant development in the yard near your septic tank; backups and blockages; water draining slowly from the lowest drainage point in your home (typically a sunken shower or tub); etc
. When many people buy a house with a Septic System, they typically are given little or no information on its care. My experience has actually been that, frequently, sellers avoid any reference of the Septic tank, particularly if they have had any issues with it, or maybe they do not even understand where it is or much about it themselves.
The Majority Of Houses with Septic Systems that were built considering that the year “2000” have an additional integrated in booby trap for homeowners. Federal DEQ requirements have mandated that an effluent filter be set up at the discharge end of the septic system to avoid suspended solids from going into the leach system, therefore protecting the Leach System. However, they ignored to mandate access to clean up the filter and avoid triggering a backup into the home. As of this writing, I have serviced more than a hundred such events and have yet to discover a customer that had even an idea that the filter existed or that this might result.
