Septic Tank Covers

The septic tank is a very delicate feature of a house despite its size and its nature and it requires some very specific practices to keep it in good working order. Performing an inspection on a routine basis is vital to maintaining the tranquility of its processes and the effectiveness of its design. A common septic tank inspection that hits all of the major points should include the following items:

  1. An inspection of the tees and baffles of your septic system. The baffle is an important connection on the outside wall of your system, which is melded into the exterior during the manufacturing process. Concrete baffles are the most common cause of problems if they are not inspected properly for cracks and fractures, as this can indicate future failure. Tees are plastic tubing inserts that are used in cases where a baffle fails to be structurally sound and they are generally made out of PVC piping like a lot of your drain tubing.
  2. A proper check for water back-washing into the tank, after the septic tank has been fully pumped of all its contents. Water, whether it enters the tank from the pipes of your house or the pipes from the outlets in the drain field, can indicate a potentially serious problem. During this segment, it is imperative that you do not use the water in your house, as it could skew the results and create a false positive. If you have water coming from your house into the tank without running water, it means that you most likely have an issue with a leaking pipe. Water washing back into the tank from the outlet pipes generally indicates that you have a clog in the drain field. Both situations will require your immediate attention.
  3. Checking the effluence filter for proper water flow. If the effluent water is unable to successfully leave the tank or if you have unfiltered water leaving the tank and traveling to the drain field, you could have a serious problem. The inspector will remove and clean the septic filter and outlet pipes to ensure it is working properly.
  4. A complete examination of the septic risers is important. Risers are dense plastic or concrete tubes and covers that seal off the access to your septic tank as a safety measure. The inspector will check the structural integrity of the risers to ensure that they are able to safely protect access to the tank, as well as making sure they seal properly.

Just like the functioning of all complex systems, a septic tank requires a routine checkup and possible maintenance to keep it working properly. If you neglect to get your septic system inspected by a licensed professional on a regular basis, you could end up with very costly household damage or you could risk contaminating the groundwater with foul septic water. A complete septic inspection will help you correct any potential problems that could arise and it will give you peace of mind knowing that you have done everything you need to do to keep your septic system running efficiently.

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.

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.

People who look for new properties are concerned about the aesthetics of the house or the landscape, but only a few consider asking about the septic tank or cesspool. However, cesspool inspection is important when obtaining a property. Cesspool services are necessary in many cases. You have to learn the value of cesspools in homes.

A lot of home buyers are not too concerned about cesspools. Knowing whether the cesspool is in good condition and functional is important whenever you are about to buy a property. You have to ask your realtor about this, and he or she should be able to give you an answer. A realtor who does not know the condition of a property's cesspool or septic system cannot be trusted.

The problem with cesspools is they are buried underneath the ground, so you cannot be sure if the one in a prospective property is in good condition. A specialist should be called to do an inspection. There are companies that offer cesspool services including inspection. Keep in mind that an inspection is just an inspection. The service specialist will not fix problems unless you specifically ask him to do so. You probably will not need cesspool repair unless you really are planning to move into the property. If a property you are looking into has damaged cesspool, you can consider a repair service. If not, you can look at another property.

Supposing you have bought the property and then sometime in the future you encounter a problem with the cesspool, what would you do? In this case, you can contact a septic plumber or a cesspool cleaner to find out what the problem is and fix it. Cesspool and septic tank services may be available in your area. Be careful when checking out your cesspool on your own. The gas build-up is toxic and flammable, not to mention extremely sickening.

These tanks are quite effective in treating and disposing off your discarded products. You should take special care in maintaining this tank pump system. Sometime homeowners also involve themselves in installation process.

Sometimes installing a septic tank pump becomes necessary especially in higher elevation areas. This pump works exceptionally well in pumping sewage to a distribution tank from septic chamber. Thus it ensures functionality of overall septic system. Though majority of septic systems is based on gravity but this assistance becomes impractical and sometimes impossible in some cases due to distance or terrain.

An added protection to pump could be placing Ground Fault Circuit Interruption breaker because such devices reduces electrical shocks or short circuit issues. Considering expert help is recommended especially if you don't know much about electrical wiring.

5 - Now add some water to your tank just to test the pump. The pump should activate itself once the tank reaches its predefined depth level. Shut off the pump once it moves out water. In the end, septic tank should be covered once you get confirmation that your septic tank pump is functioning properly.
