Septic tanks are generally used when a home or commercial property can’t reach a sewer line. A septic tank should last about 25 years when it’s properly maintained. However, systems fail when they don’t receive the proper care. Repairing a defective septic system requires the skilled hands of a professional plumber, Should this happen to you, and you need septic repair in King City, call Plumbing Authority Inc. for assistance.
The tank itself isn’t truly a sewage treatment system. The waste inside settles to enable both liquids and solids to separate. Liquid waste flows into a filtration system to prevent it from polluting the environment. If the tank is cared for, the solids are occasionally removed to prevent blockage and other issues.
Call Plumbing Authority when you experience these common septic tank problems:
If your septic tank has accumulated waste, garbage, grease, or biosolids, it’s time for the experts to inspect the system and flush it out. If you’re experiencing septic tank failure or think your septic system is broken, allow the Plumbing Authority team to determine if any equipment is failing, and hopefully avoid the need for complete replacement.
Unfortunately, quite a few system owners think that if they’re not experiencing problems with the tank, it doesn’t need to be pumped. This can be a costly mistake.
When sludge accumulates for longer than 3-5 years, the sewage doesn’t have ample time to settle before leaving the tank. As that sludge level increases, more of the solid waste makes its way into the soil absorption system (SAS). It then becomes clogged and unable to absorb liquid, causing a backup, with wastewater making its way to the surface, creating unsanitary conditions.
