Understand How An Onsite Septic System Functions In Durham, NC

Flushing the toilet is one of the most common things that homeowners do every day. With just one flick of a button, the water washes away all the wastes from the toilet bowl. The commode is a part of our daily lives, yet, many would be struggling to respond to this simple question: 

What Happens After You Flush Your Wastes?

After pushing the flush button, all of the waste materials are routed underneath your property to a buried storage tank. There, the waste products settle into three separate layers. Solid waste will sink and accumulate on the bottom.  The second layer contains the liquid effluent. The third and top layer is composed of grease and oil as well as other floatable materials, which will form into a crust at the top.

If the solids in the tank reach too high a level, reaching an exit pipe, they will travel to the distribution box then to the drain field, where they are certain to clog the system.

The accumulated solid layer will render the drain field useless, requiring you to pay for very expensive repair services. As for the liquid effluent in your tank, this will flow into the pipes that lead to the leach field of your Durham home property. This drain field filters out contaminants from the liquid waste.  The liquid waste gets absorbed through the surrounding soil by drainage and chemical processes.

 

How to Maintain Your Durham Septic System the Best Way Possible 

According to numerous onsite septic system owners, one of the worst things that can happen is when the sewer system fails, because this will surely require a huge expense to fix. However, there are actions that you can perform that will greatly reduce this risk. To lower this risk and associated worry, then you should familiarize yourself with the best maintenance routine to employ for your tank systems.                 

One of the top ways to take care of your tank systems is having a regular septic tank pumping service performed. Depending on the holding capacity of your tanks, you should have a septic pumping service performed once every three to five years. The pumping frequency is also dependent upon how many people reside in the home.                                    

Keep a detailed record of all septic system maintenance and repair activities. Connect with your septic tank contractor in Durham when it is time for another regular maintenance or any time you are having a problem with your tank.
