Problems That Can Occur with Your Septic Tank

overloading

This is the process by which the tank fills quickly. There are several factors that can contribute to this, however the most important thing to know is that this can overburden the tank and drainfield causing oversaturation and failure of the drainfield.

washing machines

Did you know that washing machines are responsible for the highest volume of water going out of your house at once. They can discharge are much as 65 gallons per cycle. Doing multiple cycles per day can contribute to overloading your septic tanks.

grease

Grease is the one factor that causes the most problems in your septic tank and drainfield. Overtime fat will solidify in the sewer line constricting drainage, as well as form a solid mass in the tank. Thus bacterial action will slow also compromising the drainfield.
