Local Plumbers Explain Common Issues with Septic Systems
If you have a septic system in your Jensen Beach area home, you may not fully understand its operational purpose or how it works. Your home’s septic system has the job of removing waste from the drains inside your plumbing system. From there, toxic pathogens enter into the septic tank for treatment, and clean water is released into the systems drain field.
Unfortunately, problems can, and do, happen within a septic system, and it’s best to have an experienced plumbing company on hand when things go wrong. So, before spending some quality time at Indian Riverside Park, or going out to Conchy Joe’s Seafood, take a moment to learn a bit more about your septic system and the problems you could one day face.
Cleaning is Necessary
In order for your septic system to work properly, it’s necessary for you to have your tank and filters cleaned on a regular basis. Not doing so can cause issues with your system and even threaten your family’s health.
If you notice a foul smell or if your drains become clogged, you should call an experienced plumber like those here at Cooke’s Plumbing and Septic. Also, if you notice bright green grass lines on your lawn, this is also a good time to retain the services of an experienced plumbing company like Cooke’s. We’ve served the Jensen Beach area for over 50 years now!
Blockage from Grease Buildup
Many people don’t think twice about pouring excess oil, fat and liquid grease into their drains. However, these liquids solidify once they enter the cooler confines of your drain system. When this happens, a blockage occurs in your drain field. From there, the soil will not retain the ability to absorb liquids. This could eventually result in the installation of a new drain field. While you may be inclined to live in our newer communities, it’s possible your home has been around for awhile and be susceptible to issues that septic systems cause.
Tank Line Leaks
You must ensure that the tank of your septic system is airtight so the waste inside your septic tank cannot leak out. If it does, the waste can release toxic organisms which are toxic for the environment. A regular maintenance of your septic system can help catch the potential for any leaks.
If your septic tank is not pumped on a regular basis, you have the potential for sludge buildup. When this happens, it blocks the incoming lines of your system, and you’ll wind up with a backup that spills into your home.
