Aerobic Septic Systems

I thought today would be a good day to post a little information about
Septic Systems after I went to a Well and Septic inspection for some
clients of mine. If you are buying a home with a septic tank, you
should always have it inspected. Problems with the systems can be
NASTY! If you take care of problems with the system when noticed or
found then it will save you lots of money rather than just ignoring it
and paying the big bucks later. Most homes are connected to city sewer
systems, but at some homes, it is just not possible.  Aerobic septic
systems are made up of big tanks that are connected to the home to
store its waste. Numerous pipes are connected to the tanks to carry
the gray water(clean, but from the system) to sprinkler heads that
spray it out in the yard. These systems are not hard to take care of.
It is best to hire a company to come check on it every six months and
see if the system is getting full, needs pumped or even cleaned.

If you ever observe that the flow in the toilet or sinks is draining
slow, the septic might have an issue. Or maybe you smell something
stinky in the backyard by the septic system itself, be sure and call a
septic company to come check it out.

Conserve water as much as possible when using a septic system. You
don’t need to go overboard, but just don’t overdue it. I have also
heard it is good to use liquid detergent and not powder with a septic
system. The less that goes out of the house the less that will be in
the septic tank to be pumped. Make sense?

Don’t forget to get your septic system checked if you have not lately.
Wouldn’t you rather be safe than sorry?

Send me a message if you have any questions or concerns about septic systems.
