How a Septic System Works...
Let's keep it simple. Your septic tank is designed to hold all solid matter, and your drain field allows the liquid to exit the tank safely underground and then permeate through the soil. Failure to maintain your system will result in a cost of thousands of dollars. What do you do??? Below are the basics to a healthy septic system.
The environmental health departments in the state of Georgia recommend pumping your tank every 3 to 5 years. For smaller families (2 or 3 people) every 5 years is okay, but for families of 4 or more every 3 years is best. The "pump-out" is designed to remove solid matter from the interior of the septic tank. Failure to remove the solids will result in excessive build-up and could cause major damage to your drain field, not to mention major damage to the inside of your house from a back up. When we pump out your tank we remove everything, both solids and liquids, leaving your tank completely empty and ready to use for the next 3 to 5 years.
In addition to pumping our your septic tank you can periodically add organic bacteria to your system in order to keep solids down to a minimum. All household cleaning items (from soap to detergent) are anti-bacterial and cause the break down properties in your septic tank to come to a hault. Monthly bacteria treatments counteract these anti-bacterial agents, causing toilet paper and solids to bio-degrade rather than thicken.
