Septic tanks are generally used when a home or commercial property can’t reach a sewer line. In order to deal with waste, a tank is installed, and should last about 25 years when it’s properly maintained. However, systems fail if they don’t receive the proper care. Should this happen to you, and you need septic repair in King City, call Plumbing Authority Inc. for professional assistance.
The tank itself isn’t truly a sewage treatment system. The waste inside settles to enable both liquids and solids to separate. Liquid waste flows into a filtration system to prevent it from polluting the environment. If the tank is cared for, the solids are occasionally removed to prevent blockage and other issues. Without regular maintenance, sewage can back up, creating inconvenience, mess, and requiring major cleanup. To avoid these difficulties, rely on an expert, licensed plumbing team to check your septic tank, and remove the “sludge” every three years or so. If your home or property doesn’t have a garbage disposal (garburator), you may need the system cleaned every year.
Should the baffles of your tank rot, scum can create problems. The system becomes unbalanced when solids build up as a result of neglect. Regular cleaning and pumping is necessary to prevent the need for septic repair. However, King City clients can rely on us should the worst happen. You can trust we will answer your emergency call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
If your septic tank has accumulated waste, garbage, grease, or bio-solids, it’s time for the experts to inspect the system and flush it out. If you’re experiencing septic tank failure or think your septic system is broken, allow the Plumbing Authority team to determine if any equipment is failing, and hopefully avoid the need for complete replacement.
Unfortunately, quite a few system owners think that if they’re not experiencing problems with the tank, it doesn’t need to be pumped. This can be a costly mistake. When sludge accumulates for longer than 3-5 years, the sewage doesn’t have ample time to settle before leaving the tank. As that sludge level increases, more of the solid waste makes its way into the soil absorption system (SAS). It then becomes clogged and unable to absorb liquid, causing a backup, with wastewater making its way to the surface, creating unsanitary conditions.
