Septic Sytem Maintenance

If you wait until something has already gone wrong with your Septic System, you are probably too late to have any hope at fixing it yourself. But, if you can develop a plan of action on How to Detect and see Early Signs of "Septic Tank trouble," you may just prolong the life of your system and save yourself a ton of money!

Septic System's by State

¼ of all homes (approx. 28+ million) in the Nation are using a septic system. What percentage of homes in these state's use Septic System's:

  • 55% Vermont
  • 48% North Carolina
  • 40% South Carolina
  • 40% Kentucky
  • 10% California


How do I Know if I Have a Septic System?

The easiest way to determine if you actually do have a Septic System is to take a look at your water bill. You should find a line that reads something like "Sewer Amount Charged." If this line reads a $0.00 amount (and you are not operating an agriculture account) you most likely DO have a septic Tank.

How can I find out if I have a septic system:

  • Ask your landlord
  • Call your city or county water officials
  • Ask your home owner insurance Agent
  • Check with the title company that manages your property
  • Ask a Realtor friend to check for you
  • Contact previous owner
  • Ask neighbor's (if they have them you probably do too)
  • If your home water is from a well, you likely have a septic
  • After a frost you see a bare patch (septics generate heat as they decompose material which causes this patch) in the yard

How Does a Properly Maintained Septic System Work?

A properly maintained Septic System feeds waste water from your home into pipes that fan out into the drainage field (also known as a leach field because the fluids "leach" out of the pipes and into the soil). The remaining (heavy) waste material will settle to the bottom of the tank. It is this solid waste that can bring significant problems. You have to have it pumped out every year or so, for safe and proper disposal by a professional.

My Plumbing is Draining Slowly

If your drains are working slowly, or not at all, the main house drain may have a clog, or the septic system may be backed up. Check for clogs first, by clearing the main drain with a power auger (some power auger's attach to a drill, while others are self standing machines). You should never use chemical drain cleaners on a septic system as the enzyme's required for proper function will be destroyed. Fewer experts today say you should treat your system with an enzyme replacement agent, even if they do get advertised as a needed tool to keep the tank healthy and functioning in top condition. A very popular septic maintenance product is "RID-X." However, when the research is thoroughly inspected, the best advice remains to avoid the use of any septic additives. These products can actually cause the bacteria to become overly active, which can become more hazardous than helpful to your system. When agitated the overactive bacteria pushes undissolved heavy material into the drainage field before it has been broken down sufficiently, which is asking for a big septic repair bill and a health hazard right in your back yard!

How Do I Know if I Have a Serious Problem with My Septic System

First things first; when dealing with serious problems surrounding a Septic Tank, you must act quickly and very cautiously. Human sewage is very HAZARDOUS WASTE—primarily to humans. There are strict government regulations that apply to its handling and removal. Septic Tanks manufacture explosive methane gas and may contain DEADLY viruses.

If faced with the problems brought on by a damaged or non-functioning septic system at your home, you must contact a licensed sewer cleaning service. Click here for The EPA's (pdf.) guide on Septic Systems Rules.

What if the House Drain isn't Clogged?

If the house drain is not clogged, the problem could be a clogged drain field, absence of bacteria in the system, or your Septic System is full. Two important signs to be on the look-out for concerning these symptoms are as follows:

  1. Dark-colored water is standing on the surface of the drain field
  2. A yucky sewage odor can be smelled in or around your home

If you are encountering either of these conditions, you most likely have a serious problem with your septic system and must contact a licensed or certified sewage cleaning service.

Septic Aerator

Municipal wastewater effluent contains pollutants that are destroying our environment. These effluents are discharged into lakes, ponds, rivers and oceans, killing sea life and even harming humans. The excess phosphorus causes the most common problem. Phosphorus is an essential part of our ecosystem which supports the growth algae and aquatic plants. Many fish depend on these algae and plants for their survival. But excess discharge of phosphorus as organic wastes in industrial effluent & sewerage is destroying the sea life. The algae grow unnaturally fast, disturbing the natural growth and thus the quality of the food for the fishes get destroyed. Fish respires on the oxygen under water, due to this reason the oxygen level decreases and they cannot survive. Phosphorus also releases dangerous chemicals and bacteria that harm us, if we come in contact with that contaminated water or eat fish from that polluted river.

- Inspection: Many tanks are reported to suffer from leaks and to get clogged. Any leakage or clogging can cause serious issues and spread out of pungent odors. To avoid this type of situations, you should make regular inspections of your tank.

- Additives: Many people try to reduce the pumping activities by using septic tank additives. These additives are said to break down the sludge and scum inside the reservoir.

While having a septic system at home is great, it is also a big responsibility. You need to get your pump cleaned every two or three years depending on various factors. This should be done so that the whole system works smoothly and you won't have to keep repairing or even replacing the tank.

Important Factors to Consider

Lifestyle: The two major lifestyle factors that affect the septic system are the age of people living in the house and the amount of water that is used at home. Age is an important factor because houses with young children and growing families often use a lot more water and they don't really watch what is being put down the drains. On the other hand, older people, especially couples living on their own, often do not use as much water. So when there is less water being used at home, less solid mater is put down the drain along with the water.

When you get your tank pumped, it is advisable to get it inspected as well. Most companies who offer septic services also have certified inspectors who will let you know if there is any damage to the septic system and if any repairs need to be conducted. If you can put in this little effort and ensure that the whole system is cleaned out and inspected occasionally, your septic tank won't only last you for years but it will also work smoothly and manage wastewater effectively.

As a septic system owner, you may want to try your level best to stay safe. This is more important if you are around the opening of the septic tank. As a matter of fact, you should know all of the important safety precautions that should be taken prior to working on the septic system. Follow the safety tips given below.

1. Septic tank lid
Make sure that the access port of your tank is covered with a solid lid. Make sure that the lid is strong enough. Kids should not be able to open it. If you have no idea as to how to install the system, you can call a professional for help. The company will be more than happy to help with the inspection.

2. The tank opening
You should never lean over the septic tank opening. The reason is that the gasses that come out of the tank may knock you out. You may also fall in the tank, which may prove fatal.

8. Driving Over The septic system
Driving heavy machine on the ground where the tank system is buried is not a good idea. Actually, you may have to bear heavy costs in order to get the broken pipes repaired. So, make sure you don't drive heavy equipment or machinery on the ground where you buried the tank system.

So, these are a few precautions that you may want to take if you are going to work on a septic tank system. This is important should you want to keep you and your family safe around the system. When in doubt, it's a good idea to call a local septic service. Hopefully, these tips will help.

Public Awareness


Over 200,000 Americans, and a million more world over, die each year from Sepsis. Yet, according to the poll above, 69% of participants haven't even heard the word Sepsis, let alone know what it is.

Since the number of cases have been on the rise each year, we should get familiar with this swift and silent killer!

Blood Infection, Septicaemia, Septic Shock and Blood Poisoning are the other names sepsis is known by.

  • Sepsis, (in Greek, it means putrefy or decay), is an overwhelming immune response to infection in the body.This is triggered by the invasion of microbes in the blood, lungs, urinary tract, skin or other tissues. Mostly by bacteria, but it can be parasites, fungi or viruses and other toxic pathogens.
  • Septicaemia, is the medical term used to refer to the presence of any infectious disease causing organisms in the bloodstream, this leads to Sepsis.
  • Bacteremia, is the presence of bacteria in the blood.
  • Sepsis is defined as Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (SIRS). This is an attempt by the blood circulatory system (throughout the whole body) to remove harmful stimuli.

One can get infected through a variety of entry points, from a simple scrape to a serious medical problem. Some of the serious medical problems from where sepsis can occur are :-

  • Pneumonia, this is an inflammation of the lungs that is caused by a bacteria or a virus infection.
  • The Bloodstream, parasites invade the body through improperly cooked meat or a bite from mosquitoes or other bugs or inhaled when playing in dirt where there was animal feces.
  • Urinary Tract Infection, when germs attack the system that makes urine and carries it out of your body.
  • Meningitis, this is an inflammation of the covering around the brain and spinal cord caused by viruses or bacteria.
  • Appendicitis, this is caused when the appendix gets blocked by stool, cancer or any foreign body, resulting in inflammation.

Who gets it and Where does Sepsis occur?

Sepsis does not start on it's own, it stems from other medical conditions and it can begin in different parts of the body where there is an infection or a localized infection, (my personal experience). Once you're infected and the immune system responds, this in turn causes blood clots and leaky blood vessels. Impaired blood flow causes damage to the organs, this would quickly lead to multiple organ failure and, depending on how quickly the person got medical attention, might be the cause of death or loss of a body part.

Anyone can get sepsis, especially people with a weakened immune system.

  • Newborn babies. This is called neonatal sepsis, early onset passed from the mother through the placenta or birth canal during birth and is found in babies 2 - 3 days after birth.
  • The elderly. Sepsis in elderly people can cause long term problems, physically or mentally, they can be left with memory problems. Delirium is common in severe cases of sepsis.
  • People with chronic illnesses such as Diabetes, AIDS, Cancer, etc.
  • Post surgery patients. Localized infection i.e when infected tissue stays in one area of the body.


Common places where an infection could turn into sepsis would be:-

  1. The bones. When bacteria invades the bone, it is called osteomyelitis.
  2. The liver. Infections such as hepatitis, cirrohsis, liver abscess, etc.
  3. The kidney. Pyelonephiritis is the name for kidney infections.
  4. The skin. We can get infected skin from the staphylococcus bacteria, skin lice, shingles, athletes foot, yeast infections, etc.

And for patients in the hospital, places where you can get sepsis are:-

  1. Intravenous lines.
  2. Surgical sites.
  3. Surgical drains.
  4. Implanted medical devices.
  5. And bedsores.
  6. Other skin problem areas.

Common infections where sepsis can occur are :-

  • MRSA, this is a staphyloccocus infection.
  • Malaria, is a life threatening, parasitic disease spread by mosquitoes.
  • Kidney stones form when there is dehydration in the body. As a result, not enough urine to wash out the microscopic crystals in the urine.

Sepsis can cause :-

  • Blood clots that prevents oxygen and nutrients from to vital parts of the body.
  • Low blood pressure that prevents the blood from reaching to vital parts of the body.
  • Leakage from blood vessel lining.

Symptoms and Diagnoses of Sepsis.

It is very important to know what the warning signs of Sepsis are and to be able to recognize them in order to prevent the body from going into Septic Shock. There are several types of symptoms:-

  • General symptoms.
  1. Fever.
  2. Chills.
  3. Rapid heart rate, >90 bpm
  4. Rapid breathing.
  5. Confusion.
  6. Swelling.
  7. High glucose in non-diabetics.
  8. Decreased urination.
  9. Nausea and vomiting.
  10. Diarrhea.

Some of the above symptoms are similar to other conditions, that's why sepsis is hard to diagnose in it's early stages. But a presence of all of them would tell you that it is time to get to the hospital ER.

  • A blood test will determine whether the :-
  1. White blood cell count is normal or not.
  2. White blood cells are immature.
  3. Levels of plasma C-reactive protein are high.
  4. PCT level is elevated.
  5. Levels of platelets in the blood.
  6. Levels of lactic acids in the blood.
  7. Levels of oxygen in the blood.

In addition to blood tests, an ultra sound, a CT scan and a chest X-ray will be done, the heart rate and blood pressure will be checked.

Patients with Sepsis is usually in intensive care unit (ICU). Doctors will start a treatment of :-

  1. Broad Spectrum antibiotics, to kill any bacteria.
  2. IV fluids to maintain blood pressure.
  3. Oxygen to maintain normal blood oxygen.
  4. Targeted drug use, once the culprit has been identified.
  5. If needed, surgery to drain and clean the infection.

How I learned about Sepsis.

In the year 2001, I underwent a Laparoscopic Splenectomy to get my spleen removed because of ITP. Once my doctor deemed it to be safe, I went home to recuperate and my incision was healing nicely.

A few days after I went home, I started feeling hot or cold alternately, my incision site pained, it pains for a few seconds then it goes away. I knew that something went wrong there, I visited the ER at the hospital and they couldn't find what was wrong, a CT scan couldn't detect any infection.

The following day, the after care nurse came to attend to my incision and she was concerned by what she found so she had called it in to the hospital. Something weird happened later that day, we had Chinese food for supper, and I found that when I coughed, my incision dressing becomes wet and needed changing so I went to change it, and I wasn't sure, but the gauze smelled like Chinese food.

I had to cough again, so I placed tissues over the opening, when I removed it, I saw bits of broccoli on it where the fluid had squirted.

My neighbour was a nurse, so I went across and asked her about it and she said that with a situation like that, I should go to the hospital ER right away. I wasn't too keen on going to the hospital ER for a consecutive day, so my husband and I went to see his doctor, and his doctor, sent me to the hospital and called his contacts, at the hospital, to relay the information.

He spoke very harshly to them ( he ran a family clinic at the hospital, too). Turned out, the team of young doctors didn't do a good "clean-up" job, on the inside when they removed my spleen, some blood was left and that in turn, became a localized infection that was well on it's to becoming full blown sepsis.

The ER got hold of the head of team of surgeons that did the operation and made him and his team complete the clean-up and the mess it caused. I slept through the process and when I woke up, the pain was gone and although, I was a little weak my body felt right again. My incisions healed perfectly and on time after that and I could be happy again.

Prevention of Sepsis.

There are a few steps that can be taken to prevent a sepsis infection.

  • Make sure that your vaccinations are updated.
  • Avoid using contaminated needles.
  • Follow proper hand washing procedures.
  • Thoroughly clean any open wounds and keep them free of infections.
  • Good personal hygiene practices.
  • Get your annual check-ups done regularly.
  • Treat your infections thoroughly.
  • Use proper protection or, if possible, stay away from sepsis infected sources.
  • Report any symptoms to your doctor.
  • Build up your immune system.
  • You can also schedule a blood test for sepsis screening.
  • Be informed about Sepsis.
  • Use your full dose of antibiotics, when it's prescribe for your infection.

Stay Healthy, Be Happy!
