The Three Parts That Make up a Septic System
- The septic tank – Its main purpose is to separate solids from waste water and to store and decompose as many solid matter as possible.
- The drain field – This is designed to allow waste water to be absorbed throughout an area.
- The soil – This is the final treatment area of the system. The soil, along with organisms, treats the waste water before it is absorbed into the surrounding area.
A system that is not maintained can cost homeowners thousands of dollars in repairs. The most important step is to remove the sludge and scum build-up before it is carried into the drain field. Septic system treatments or additives are not necessary and should not take place of a tank cleaning. A general rule of thumb is to pump the tank every 3–5 years.
Here at Roto-Rooter, we do a complete inspection while servicing a septic tank. Our pumper trucks carry a few hundred feet of hose, so we do not need to drive across lawns or costly landscaping. Our technicians check the level of solids, inspect the baffles, and rinse down the tank as part of our service. Our technician can also advise on how often the septic system should be serviced, as many factors can influence how often a septic tank should be pumped. Our staff is fully prepared to help answer any questions that you may have about septic systems.
