Being experts at septic tank systems, we at Athens Septic Tank Service know each component of the system, what are red flags, and what needs to be remedied to prevent serious issues. Septic tanks are cost-effective conduits for wastewater treatment that require regular maintenance to fulfil their important functions. In addition to the tank and all its components, the leach field is also essential to the system's functionality. Known also as drain fields or disposals, leach fields are fundamentally related to soil type around the tank area and the soil's capacity for absorption. Basic maintenance involves taking good care of both the tank and the leach field.
The most common types of materials for septic tanks are concrete, fiberglass, steel, or plastic. These materials are used because of their corrosion resistant properties, which is very important when dealing with waste water. A septic tank system collects wastewater not only from the toilet, but also from all other water-related appliances in your home or building, including laundry machines, dishwashers, sinks, showers, and others. What the system does in essence is divide liquids and solids. The liquids are then filtered through the leach field soil to naturally remove hazardous bacteria, toxins, and other pollutants before the water has a chance to reach bodies of water or ground water. All the parts must work collaboratively to ensure wastewater safety.
Things to Know for a Healthy System
These systems can seem daunting and complex, but if you just know a few things, you can ensure that your septic tank system investment is well maintained and does not pose a safety risk, while also avoiding costly repairs. At Athens Septic Tank Service, our maintenance crew checks and consults with you about the most important components you need to keep an eye on. We check the technology type, such as standard gravity flow or sand filtration. Another important piece of knowledge is location of the tank and leach field. Pumps and filters come in various manifestations. Keeping all of these things in mind, we do thorough maintenance work and explain to you what we're doing. We also give advice on how to prevent clogs and damage.
