If you have slow-draining toilets or drains and smell sewage odors in your home or yard, chances are your septic system has failed.


Trying to decide when to pump out the septic tank can be one of the more frustrating decisions to make. If you pump it out too soon, you are just wasting money; wait too long, and you have a nasty mess on your hands. Pumping should be based primarily on system capacity, frequency of use, and the age of the tank and system.


Did you know that the average "detention" time for a 1,000-gallon septic tank is 30 hours? With routine service, sludge layers can be analyzed for excessive build up to ensure that your tank remains in good operating condition.

Pouring grease down the drain can clog your septic drainfield, making soil absorption impossible. If you have a septic system, it’s critical that you are careful about what you put down your drains and toilets.


Sentiment comes in many forms – even septic tanks. In one of the more memorable moments of “The Andy Griffith Show,” Barney buys his parents a concrete, steel-reinforced septic tank for their anniversary. Practical and romantic in one wonderful package.


It’s important to remember that putting oil or grease down the drain can be devastating to the your septic tank. When excess oil and grease enter the tank and join the scum layer, they can actually make the scum layer grow so much that it begins to hinder effluent from escaping into the drainfield.


Septic tanks are the perfect alternative to treating wastewater in a treatment plant. They are also common in rural areas because they can easily deal with the small amount of sewage a household creates.


The effluent in a septic tank is made up of scum and sludge. How are these two things different? If you guessed that scum is the floating material while sludge is the solid waste that sinks to the bottom of the tank, you're right.


In septic systems, all interior plumbing drains connect to a main pipe that leads to the septic tank. Waste water from sinks, showers, toilets, and washing machines is funneled through the pipes and collected in the tank, where bacteria break down waste matter.


A study done by Penn State University has shown that septic tanks that are routinely pumped (every 2 to 3 years) allows soil absorption areas to rest, making them more retentive. Longer periods of rest where no wastewater is added to the system in turn means greater efficiency.


Given that septic tank replacement is quite expensive, preventative maintenance of your system is important. By searching for possible line leaks, inspecting the inlet-outlet baffle, and maintaining the drain field, we can help you avoid costly repairs down the road.


In 1976, the book, The Grass is Always Greener over the Septic Tank, became a New York Times best seller. Written by humorist Erma Bombeck, it featured funny, touching, and insightful commentaries on life in middle-class, suburban America.


On a microscopic level, septic systems rely on the lifecycles of minute organisms called anaerobic bacteria to use the environment inside a septic system to process solid waste into beneficial organic matter.


Proper maintenance of your septic system involves periodically having the solids pumped out of the tank, as this will minimize the incidence of clogs and other issues. It’s recommended that you have a watertight concrete riser installed over the septic tank to simplify access.


The septic system is something a homeowner generally takes for granted until there is a problem. Industry experts recommend yearly inspections to ensure that the sludge level is appropriate and all moving parts are in working order.


The removal of septic waste by having your septic tank cleaned is a critical aspect of caring for your septic system, as it can substantially extend its life. The frequency a tank should be cleaned will depend on the specific tank size and the number of building occupants.


You may already know septic tanks should be serviced regularly and pumped to remove sludge buildup every three to five years. Can you avoid cleaning your septic tank? The experts say no. All septic tanks develop sludge buildup over time and that buildup will reduce the efficiency of the tank and eventually clog it completely.


Did you know that the first bathroom was built in Britain after the long and grubby interlude of the Middle Ages? This 17th-century bathing room was recently found in a castle that belonged to Sir William Cavendish, an English aristocrat.


So how does a septic tank work? Basically, untreated wastewater from a property flows into the septic tank where the solids separate from the liquids. Heavier solids settle to the bottom of the tank as sludge, which will eventually need to be pumped out.


To keep your septic system running efficiently, be sure that you don't overload it. Check your faucets and toilets often, and if they are leaking, repair or replace them. You can also use aerators and flow reducers to minimize water consumption.


If the home you have purchased has a septic tank, you need to know where the access point is. However, it may not be obvious, buried well beneath your lawn. If you are not sure where it is, do not start randomly digging – it could cause severe damage. Instead, bring in a professional service to locate it.


The earliest type of septic tank was known as a "cesspool" and was invented by the ancient Romans. A large stone vat was built to hold human waste. Solids settled at the bottom and lighter items floated to the top. That partially cleaned liquid at the top was then drained into a body of water nearby, such as a river or the sea.


The sludge layer is the layer of inorganic material that lies on the bottom of the septic tank, beneath the water and scum layer. The sludge layer builds up over time, and must be periodically pumped out.


The solids treated by a septic system first settle at the bottom of a septic tank, and they then float to the surface as surface layer scum or settle at the tank bottom as sludge. Effluent is then distributed, along with other treatment processes, and the solids are moved toward a soil absorption area.


To protect your septic system from damage, avoid driving over the drain field, building a structure over it, or covering it with concrete or asphalt. Planting grass over the drain field is a good idea, as it will minimize soil erosion.


Safety screens add another tier of protection to septic tank access ports and risers. Because they fit into the opening and are screwed into place, they prevent someone from accidentally falling in but can be removed for tank pumping, inspection, or cleaning.


Septic tank experts say the wrong toilet paper is one of the most common reasons to need septic tank repair. Some toilet paper can be too thick and lead to blockages that could require a repair visit.


A septic system functions as a miniature sewer system and waste treatment plant. All household waste; toilet, kitchen, bathing, and laundry is disposed of through the septic system.


The word "septic" in septic system refers to the bacteria that organically decompose the waste matter in the tank. The bacteria actually enter the septic tank along with the household waste.


A strong, unpleasant odor can be a recurring problem for many septic tanks. The issue, according to experts, often has to do with clogged roof vents, which limit the proper amount of ventilation.


As a septic system owner, it’s important to understand state and local regulations governing your system. In some states, for instance, it’s mandatory to have residential septic tanks pumped at least once every three years.
