When a septic tank is in good working order, it’s easy not to think about it. Your home’s wastewater from the bathrooms and the kitchen and laundry area all flow out to the septic system tank. This is a large tank that is buried somewhere on your property some distance away from the house. Once the wastewater reaches the tank the system begins to separate waste from the water. The heavy solids sink to the bottom. Bacteria in the bottom of the tank break down these solids into a sludge. Other wastes that are solid but don’t sink float on the top of the water and this is called the scum layer. The water that is left flows out of the tank and into the pipes that are in the drain field, where it leaches out of the pipes and into the ground. It is a great system when it is functioning as it is supposed to.

If you know your septic tank is working well and you have no issues, there are only a few things you need to be doing regularly to keep it working well. These are:

  • Regular Inspections
  • Routine Pumping Of Septic Tank
  • Monitor What Goes Down The Drains And Into The Tank

It is a good idea to have your system inspected every year or so just to monitor how the system is working and levels of waste and water in the tank and to make sure there are no unnoticed leaks, odors, or spongy areas around the tanks, pipes or drain field. An inspection of water levels in the tank can confirm if the tank is being pumped often enough. Normally in Charlotte neighborhoods, a residential septic tanks will need service about every 3-5 years. Depending on the size of the family in the residence and the size of the tank, it could be more often or less. This is why periodic inspections are important, to make sure you don’t have an overfilled tank, which could cause overflow into the drainfield. This would be a huge mess that could cause huge problems.

Septic Tank Being Cleaned - Charlotte Residential Septic Tank Services
Our plumbers in Charlotte can come to your home to perform the residential septic tank services of regular inspections and routine pumping of the septic tank when you call and schedule an appointment! Along with those two preventative measures, you can also take part in keeping your septic system working well, and that includes monitoring what you allow down your drains and toilet with the wastewater. Make sure no fats and grease go down the drain, as well as no coffee grounds, egg and nut shells, and don’t use a garbage disposal with a septic system. Ground kitchen waste will only fill your septic tank with sludge faster. Other items to never let into your septic tank are disposable diapers, paper towels, feminine hygiene items, cigarette butts, paints, and other like items. Also, it is a good idea to only use cleaning products that are safe for septic systems. Harsh cleansers, solvents, and drain cleaners can destroy the bacteria in the tank that are necessary to break down the waste.
