How Septic Tank Pumping Is Done?

 

To really understand the process involve in Navarre Septic Tank Pumping, it is necessary to know what the system is and what it does and how it actually works. Simply put, septic system is an underground treatment system intended for keeping household waste. As a matter of fact, there are 4 primary components that every septic system has and these include the tank itself, drain field, soil and the pipe from the house.

If any of these components have damage or malfunctioning then it is enough to compromise the system which could lead to drinking water contamination. When such thing happens, the repairs will be costly or even require homeowners to buy a new tank to replace the old one if the damage has gone through considerable extent.

One basic explanation on how these systems work all begin with wastewater that leaves your house through its plumbing network to the piping that goes directly to the tank. The septic tank is buried several feet underground and constructed often in water tight fashion of polyethylene, fiberglass or concrete. With this in mind, it is able to store wastewater for extended period of time without causing any issues; during this period, the oil floats on top and form scum while solid waste settle to the bottom and form sludge.

There are some solid wastes that are decomposing too. The septic tank has several components and a T-shaped outlet to prevent scum as well as sludge to leave the tank and go to the drain field. As soon as the liquid entered the drain field, it’s then filtered through layers of soil to be able to remove viruses and harmful bacteria as well.

To remove the scum and sludge from the tank, it is necessary to carry out septic tank pumping periodically. Never disregard the formation of scum as well as sludge in your septic tank because doing is often the root cause of clog in the tank that then goes to the drain field. Navarre Septic Services can do periodic inspection of the tank and pump and clean it to ensure that everything’s working how it was supposed to be.

In regards to septic tank pumping process, there will be a big tank truck that has hoses and pumps for suctioning the tank. The hoses are then inserted to manhole opening at ground level in order to remove the sludge and scum that have accumulated in the tank. These two are sucked out of the tank and straight to the tank and then, disposed in appropriate fashion. Once the suctioning is done, your septic service company will be inspecting the valves, ground and tank if there are leaks or clogs in the tank.
