Overview On Septic Systems And the Inspection Process

septic tank care bacteria

A lot of rural homes are not linked to a mains sewer system. These houses count on a self-contained sewage treatment plant called a septic system. If you have a septic tank, or are thinking about the purchase of a house with one, there are life-saving facts you need to know about septic tanks. A sewage-disposal tank takes the sewage from your house, the solids settle out and grease drifts to the top. In between the two layers is a clear watery layer that is piped away to an absorption area where it is permitted to percolate away, through the soil. Soil germs break down any nutrients before the sewage reaches the water bearing rocks, or any streams. Septic tanks are typically buried in the ground. There are 3 main types, all of which cause various issues. Steel tanks rust, specifically when buried in the ground. A steel septic system can be so corroded that it can result in somebody walking over it falling through and into the tank. The unlucky person is suffocated by the methane generated in the tank, or drowns. Concrete tanks may be damaged internally, resulting in long-term and costly to remedy damage to the absorption drain-field. The worst tanks are those developed from concrete blocks on website. In some cases the blocks are simply laid and not sealed together. Even if they are sealed together years of attack from acidic sewage will dissolve the mortar. These tanks can collapse without warning and probably fail to fulfill regional preparation and environmental management guidelines. How do you tell if your septic system has issues? , if there are ANY locations of sunken ground around it STAY AWAY.. Hire a contractor right away. Into the septic tank and pass away if you step on these locations you could fall through. These are indications that your septic tank has partly collapsed. Check for signs of strong sewage material in the drain-field area. This can be really expensive to rectify if the drain-field has been infected because the septic tank has not been pumped out regularly. If you are buying a house with a septic tank, you must insist on the tank being drained and an examination by a sewage-disposal tank specialist carried out. It is not possible to examine a septic tank appropriately while it is complete. You may need to spend for a contractor to provide you a report, however this will be a tiny quantity compared to the expense of any required restorative work A septic tank takes the sewage from the house, the solids settle out and grease drifts to the top.

Septic Tank Pumping - You Can Repair Many Septic Tank Problems Yourself And Save A Ton Of Money

Sewer Snake

As a home inspector, I hear complaints from real estate agents every week about septic system failures. The story always goes like this. The buyer loved the home. The inspector suggested there may be a problem with the septic system. The buyer ignored the inspector's warnings and bought anyway. And the buyer ends up with a home that is ruined with seeping sewage within just a few years.

It is easy to blame the seller in this situation, and believe that he intentionally misrepresented the home.

This is often unfair to the seller, who does not know any better than the buyer that the septic system is on its last legs at the time of the sale. However, this does not change the sad fact that the buyer, who is already leveraged on an expensive home (particularly in New Jersey, where annual property taxes normally run in the tens of thousands of dollars), then has a septic repair job on their hands that costs several thousand dollars.

7) If the seller refuses to be at the home on the day of the inspection, this is a red flag for consideration. Tell him you would like to keep him in the loop, and you would appreciate if he comes to every meeting.

Septic System Inspection: Money Well-Spent

For both the buyer and the seller, the cost of a septic system inspection is well worth the money. The buyer gets peace of mind knowing he will not have to replace his septic system at a moment's notice. Also, the seller protects himself from a lawsuit, as the contractors he hires become the targets for litigation.

 

WELCOME TO OUR FULL SERVICE SEPTIC WEBSITE

Welcome to the Septic Tank Pumping Tampa, Fl website. Tampa Bay Plumbers has been servicing thousands of septic tank systems in Tampa Bay for the past 15 years. We are the absolute best choice when it comes to the lifespaan and longevity of your home’s septic tank system. Septic systems are very important to the health of Floridians. In fact, 2.67 million septic systems are currently operated by nearly 1/3rd of the population. Regular scheduled septic tank pumping is the best way to maintain these systems, and this website will provide details on how to get the most out of your systems. Septic systems are the most economical form of sewage treatment, so long as your system is installed and maintained correctly.

How Septic Tanks Work

The population living in metropolitan areas (who have never had the pleasure of maintaining a septic system, or who have never experienced waddling in their leachfield, or even had the experience of pumping out their systems) simply flush their toilets.

Those of us living in more rural areas have been forced to learn about the maintenance and working of the sewerage treatment facility attached to our home, “the septic system.” Usually a septic tank is connected to a drainage field or seepage pit of some kind. If properly maintained, a well-designed system will last almost indefinitely. However, if it is neglected for too long a time, it can back up and clog the drainage field. This neglect can result in an expensive excavation and even a replacement of the drainpipes that could cost thousands of dollars.

Failing Drain Field?

What can you do to increase the lifespan?

When a drain field fails it stops accepting water and the septic tank fills all the way up. Once this happens the house backs up and toilets can overflow with sewage. So why does the drain field fail in the first place?  Most of the time it is due to the materials used for construction and the quality of the workmanship.  We tear out more failing EZFlow systems than any other.  In fact, Tampa Bay Plumbers finds many EZFlow systems failing in less than 5 years of service.

Rock, gravel, and pipe systems last for a very long time and are still in service today.  They are no longer commonly installed in Florida last up to 50+ years.  Most of the quality systems you see today are made using chamber materials and septic quality sand.  The chambers are easy to install and provide a massive volume of water to allow the ground time to percolate all of the wastewater produced in your home or business.  Tampa Bay Plumbers uses this chamber style installation on all of its septic repairs because we never tear them out!  Best Septic Tank Pumping Services – Tampa FL | Septic Cleaning Costs.
