You are certainly not alone. American Septic Inc. understand septic drain field problems can be extremely frustrating and happen at the most inconvenient moment. Drain field problems are caused by system biomat (intestinal bacteria) that hinders liquid from being properly absorbed. When biomat flows through a septic system, clogging can develop in the drain field causing major problems with the drain field. Bacterial growth formation creates a slushy layer over the drain field preventing
absorption. The overlaying slush contains harmful anaerobic bacterium, causing serious health risks if it is not properly removed. The overpowering odors and dampness is due to septic system back-ups. When this happens, it needs to be rectified by a professional sewer and septic service specialist. Our sewer and septic specialists are experts in finding affordable solutions for your drain field problems. During our initial visit, our specialists will thoroughly inspect your sewer and septic system to determine if it needs drain field repair or a new drain field installation.
Septic System Care:
- Pump your septic tank every 2 to 3 years. Most tanks reach capacity within 2 to 3 years of normal use. Larger family homes should get pumped every 2 years.
- Use septic tank safe products To avoid killing excess bacteria (which is important to your septic tank), use products that are labeled "safe for septic tanks"
- Use liquid laundry detergent Many powdered detergents contain paticles that do not easily dissolve in water, using liquid detergent can help keep your septic tank healthy.
- Keep water usage to a minimum Practice water conservation in your home. 90% of sewage flow from a household is water.
- Minimize the amount of grease that goes down the drain Grease from cooking should never be poured directly down the drain. Wipe pots and pans with paper towels to reduce the amount of grease that gets washed off.
- Laundry drainage - It is best to use biodegradable soaps and detergents for a cleaner environment. Lint traps should be cleaned periodically.
