ST AUGUSTINE Septic Tank Repair
Reasons for Septic Tank Failure:
- The amount of wastewater entering the system is more than the system can handle. The wastewater will back up in the house or yard creating a health hazard.
- A system installed in unsuitable soils can lead to failure. Other risks include tanks that are inaccessible for maintenance, drainfields that are paved or parked on, tree roots, or defective components that interfere with treatment.
- Household Toxins and Cleaners can interfere with your system's performance. Any oil-based paint, solvents, toxic cleaners can kill the living organisms that digest and treat your waste.
- Frequent garbage disposal use can increase the amount of fats and solids entering your system and increase the amount of sludge in your septic tank, resulting in more frequent pumping.
- Running Toilets, Water Purification System, Hot Tubs, and Washing Machines can all lead to drainfield failure, due to excessive amounts of water entering the septic tank. When large amounts of water enter your septic tank, it causes agitation of solids and excess flow to the drainfield causing it to be overloaded.
