Breslau, ON – Specializing in 24-hour emergency service, septic and holding tank cleaning, septic tank repairs, and septic system repairs, Weber Septic Service wants to remind people how proper maintenance and cleaning, along with the right care will keep their septic systems functioning correctly.
It is not uncommon for people to use their septic system much like they would a city sewer system. As a result, they often use it improperly, often leading to costly repairs later. People need to understand that septic systems operate differently from city sewer systems and require additional maintenance, cleaning, and care.
One of the more common causes for septic system and holding tank problems, such as sewage backing up into the home or foul odours near the drain field or septic tank, is caused from people using the wrong household cleaners and pouring them down their drains. Too much bleach or other types of cleaners with various chemicals can kill the useful bacteria found in septic tanks.
This bacteria needs to be present to break down waste and prevent the tank from filling too quickly. When the bacteria is killed or there is only a small number, waste accumulates at a much faster rate. As a result, the tank can get full and then back up in drain lines or overflow into the yard.
Another common mistake that results in emergency services is when people are flushing the wrong things down their toilets. Plastics, facial tissues, sanitary napkins, paper towels, tampons, diapers, and baby wipes are not meant to be flushed. These items are not septic tank friendly and do not break down. Flushing these items down the toilet can result in clogged sewage drain lines and how fast the septic tank fills up and needs cleaned.
With proper and regular septic and holding tank cleaning, maintenance, and repairs, these and other problems can be prevented. In addition, correct maintenance of the septic system helps save money and protects the health of families.
