Septic Tank Pumping

Since you shower, clean dishes, and use the toilet daily, wastewater will keep trickling into your septic tank. A properly installed and well-sized septic tank will be able to keep up with the regular load. However, all septic systems eventually suffer sludge and scum build-up. Septic Tank Pumping remedies this by removing the slime that rises in the tank. The pumping is usually required once every 3 to 5 years. ​But, for people using a low capacity septic tank or living in a large house with plenty of occupants,​ the effluent expulsion window may be shorter, such as once each year.​

Septic Tank Cleaning

Although many people confuse septic tank cleaning with pumping, they are two distinct services. Pumping alone removes all the liquid and floating debris in the tank. Tank cleaning, on the other hand, goes deeper and cleans out everything, including all the compacted sludge at the bottom of the tank. ​Scheduled cleaning of the tank is essential. It prevents the build-up of antibacterial substances and toxins, which have the potential of killing the naturally occurring ​bacteria responsible for breaking down wastewater in its raw form. We will be able to calculate how often to clean your septic tank, depending on how fast sludge is building up.

Septic System Installation

​Installing a septic tank is not as easy as picking a random location and digging up the drain field. There are a lot of variables that go into a septic system installation. The first step is finding the perfect installation spot. From there, issues to work on include figuring out the ideal tank size, choosing the most suitable materials to use, calculating how often to pump out effluent to maintain optimum performance, and coming up with a septic system design.

​It takes a trained professional with tons of field experience to deliver a high-quality installation that will stand the test of time. And, not just that, proper plants need to meet a high safety threshold to prevent issues such as sewage flowing into the drain field or nearby water sources being contaminated by effluent from the tank.

Septic Tank Inspections

Inspections ensure problems are caught in good time before they turn into full-blown damage that may require costly septic tank repair or replacement of the entire system. Septic tank inspectors check for things like leaks and clogs in the input and output pipes as well as the presence of excess standing water in the leach field. ​The inspector also takes note of the level of water in the tank, and strength of flow between your home’s plumbing drainage and tank pipe outlet. At the end of the inspection, the inspector writes up a report detailing the good and the bad of your septic tank system.

Living in a country’s province or rural area has its charm- fresh water, clean air, and beautiful scenery that includes unobstructed views of sunrises and sunsets. However, there is no denying that rural living has its downsides as well. For one, the presence of an operational network of sewer lines is not something you are likely to find in rural settlement areas. So, this leaves folks with the headache of figuring out where to direct their wastewater.

​One thing we have discovered from our years of septic system installation​ service is that most people are very nervous about getting a septic tank. Much of this is mostly because the average person does not fully understand how a septic tank works, and as such, fears it to be a high maintenance investment. To debunk this misconception, we figure a quick rundown on the inner workings of a septic tank is necessary. After all, if you are going to have a septic tank installed on your property, it is good that you have an understanding of what you are getting into before taking the plunge.

What is a Septic Tank?

A septic tank is a wastewater treatment structure that is installed deep in the ground. It is a big waste containment unit made of plastic, concrete, or metal. A large pipe on one side of the tank connects it to the house’s drainage area, where it collects wastewater from sinks, bathrooms, laundry areas, and toilets. The wastewater then flows into the septic tank where it settles.

So, how do septic tanks work? Well, the process is a lot simpler than you think. The septic tank design supports the growth of bacteria that break down wastewater into several layers. Sludge (semi-solid waste) settles at the bottom, oil and greasy substances (scum) float to the top while liquid part of the wastewater (effluent) remains at the center. One thing to note is that a septic tank is a two-chamber structure. The inlet pipe, which connects to the house, sits on one side, while the outlet-perforated pipes are on the other end of the tank.

​The purpose of this design is to keep wastewater flowing in from mixing with the effluent flowing out.  Once effluent drains into a drain field, microbes in the soil combined with bugs and exposure to UV light breaks down available bacteria, viruses, and other harmful substances, leaving behind treated water. The water then disperses into the soil, where it ends up as part of the water table. With time, some of the waste matter left in the tank breaks down through anaerobic processes. What is left is eventually pumped out through methods referred to as septic tank pumping and cleaning. ​

Who Qualifies for a Septic Tank?

Septic tanks are quite pervasive in rural areas due to being too far away from mains sewers. But it is also not uncommon to find this standalone sewer treatment option in urban areas. In most cases, the use of septic tanks is widespread in overcrowded urban regions or small towns that lack enough land needed to construct an effective underground sewer system. Other times, residents prefer septic tanks because their one-time septic tank installation cost and occasional maintenance fees are more economical than paying monthly sewer bills. ​ Regardless of the location, your property must be near a drain field for you to qualify for a septic tank installation. Also known as a leach, seepage, or septic field, a drain field is simply a sizable stretch of land containing soil with a high absorption rate. If you live anywhere close to the Bakersfield, California and are considering using a septic tank, get in touch with us. Part of our septic tank services includes conducting a percolation test to determine if a property is viable for a septic system. ​ ​In case the soil on your land is not ideal for digging up a drain field, we can look into other options. There are several types of septic systems. Some drain effluent water into bio-filter or sterilization systems, others direct the water onto wetlands where present plant and bug-life clean out the water. Some systems use recirculating sand or peat filters to treat the effluent water. Links
