For a home in small, rural communities living with the additional responsibilities of having a septic system comes with the territory. A septic system is a cost-effective and long-lasting alternative for treating wastewater when access to a public sewer system is not available.
These units are typically 9 feet by 5 feet and are installed on the property but away from the home. Once the tank is in place, it is configured to connect to the plumbing that brings the wastewater away from the fixtures in the home. When a member of the household uses the shower or flushes the toilet, the used water and waste is dumped into the septic tank where a process of enzymes breaks it down. Then, the now harmless water is processed through the drain field and dispersed into the soil.
For homes that do not have access to a public sewer system, a properly working septic system is the only way for waste and wastewater to be properly treated and disposed of. For this reason, it is important that the homeowner properly cares for their septic system to ensure the integrity and prevent any malfunctions or leaks. One way to do this is to have a professional plumber provide septic service on an annual basis.
During a Pleasant Valley septic maintenance visit, the following will be done, among other steps:
Check for signs of blockages or clogs. Our technician will check the entire system from start to finish and locate the issue so we can then repair it or provide you with options.
Check the integrity of the tank. If your tank has been trying to manage materials that are not septic-friendly, there might be weakness in the walls of the tank. Also, if your tank is installed in loose soil and there has been any shifting, the lid or the seams of the tank may have shifted.
Measure solids. Your septic tank should be pumped once every 3 to 5 years. When our technician is conducting routine service, he or she will check the amounts of solid waste inside of your septic tank and will advise you on a pumping schedule.
