Septic Tank & Septic System Service & Installation in Schenectady
The EPA estimates that one of every four homes in the US uses a septic system for wastewater treatment and disposal. When a septic system has been installed by a professional and is properly taken care of, it will contribute significantly to the preservation of valuable water resources.
Unfortunately, most septic systems are set in the ground and then forgotten by the homeowner. Items that are damaging to the septic environment are repeatedly rinsed down the drain or flushed down the toilet, harsh chemicals are used that disrupt the environment of the septic tank, and maintenance appointments are not kept.
This neglect leads to a breakdown in the septic system, in fact, it is estimated by the EPA that nearly 20% of the septic system in the US fail each year, resulting in a release of pollution and waste into the environment.
Some signs of a septic system malfunction include:
- More than one of the drains in your home is draining slowly
- A black liquid that smells bad is backing up in your drains or toilets
