Most of the septic systems in our area are designed in similar ways. A pump moves waste and wastewater out through your home’s pipes to a holding tank. The tank separates waste into three layers:
- The top layer is made of oils, fats and other chemicals
- The middle layer is wastewater
- The bottom layer is solid waste matter
Wastewater leaves the tank through outlets called baffles and runs to an absorption field, a system which filters the water before it’s returned to the ground. This leaves more room in the tank for waste storage. It also means there are several components of a septic system that can fail, leaving you without safe and effective waste management.
Here are just a few potential septic problems:
- Pump motors go out
- Lines clog
- Baffles break
- Tanks crack and rust
- Absorption fields become contaminated with solid waste
A septic tank check in Baldwinsville ensures that proper waste removal and processing is taking place. Inspections can also give you advance notice to any repairs or adjustments you need to avoid potential disasters.
