The Key To A Healthy Septic System In Canyon Lake

February 15, 2022 - septic system

There is a lot involved with maintaining a home or business. At a basic level, you’ll want to keep the interiors neat. Surfaces need to be dusted or washed, you should scrub your walls, and the floors must be swept and mopped. Individual items have to be organized and put away. Next, you’ll turn your attention to the structure and lawn. Cracks and crevices are no good; neither is an un-groomed yard. Addressing issues you detect will allow your property to sustain; it can also reduce the need for exterminating pest control in Canyon Lake. However, people forget about septic system service, which is crucial to moisture control.

Septic systems regulate the output of wastewater from your property. If there are any complications, it can lead to plumbing disasters and unsanitary conditions. Learn how to protect your system and how Aerobic Services of South Texas can help. We offer remediation, starting with a commercial or home inspection. 

Signs Of A Healthy Septic System

Septic systems are underground and are similar to a sewer. The structure will treat wastewater from kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and other spaces that release liquid. Typically, its components are a septic tank, drain field, or soil absorption field. 

Septic tanks take in the matter and separate anything floatable from the wastewater. Examples are grease, oils, and solids. Soil absorption fields will push substances through perforated piping and into the ground and remove pollutants, like contaminants, pathogens, phosphorus, and nitrogen. Depending on the system's capability, wastewater may be disinfected or evaporated before reaching the soil. 

Your septic system isn’t healthy if you have the following:

  • Slow-moving drains
  • Unpleasant odors coming from the drain field yard, outdoor components, indoor drains, or septic tank  
  • Interior drains backing up with wastewater
  • A drain field with sponge-like grass that’s bright green 
  • Muddy soil or puddles in the basement or near the septic system

Immediately seek out professional assistance if you encounter these signs. You must receive a business or home inspection. 

Be Water-Wise And Keep Drains Clear 

To avoid clogs or destruction to your septic system, don’t flush these items down the toilet: 

  • Cat litter
  • Cotton swabs or balls 
  • Dental floss
  • Pills

These things won’t correctly flow through because they won’t break down. They’ll inadvertently create traps that waste will get stuck in. In severe cases, sewage can re-enter the system. The excessive water pressure might cause a line break and a moisture control crisis. You’ll also need to be mindful of what goes down the kitchen sink. Use a drain catcher to block food, and put cooking oils and grease in a disposable canister after they’ve cooled. 

Have Your Septic System Regularly Inspected And Pumped

Accumulations and obstructions will swill out with recurring septic system inspections and pumping. Potential complications, such as impeding tree roots, will be readily identified and rectified, preventing steep restoration costs in the long run. Aerobic Services of South Texas will do on-site work using replacement parts, vacuums, and pumping equipment.
