The Septic Pumping Process
The problem with septic tanks is that everyone outside the city limits in Floyd and Clark County, Indiana have one, but homeowners do not understand how they function. Understanding why a septic system needs to be cleaned can save you from a potential nightmare.
A septic tank is used to receive the raw wastewater from your home. The tank is designed to remove particles from the water. Particles that are heavy than the water sink to the bottom of the tank while the water eventually flows out of the tank into the lateral field. The debris particles become known as sludge. The sludge is what builds up and needs to be removed.
If the sludge builds up past a certain point in the tank, it can make its way out of the tank and into the lateral lines. Once it makes its way into the lateral lines and hardens up, problems are going to start. Save heartache and money by calling A1 Porta Potty today to schedule your septic pumping.
Septic Tank Cleaning Company
Governing bodies and industry veterans recommend cleaning out your septic tank every 2 or 3 years. The suggestion comes from an equation of how much wastewater a typical family produces in a years time. The equation calculates the amount of sludge in a tank to reach a maximum capacity of 30% of the entire volume of the tank. A family of four can potentially hit the 30% tank capacity in 1.5 years.
