Most septic systems consist of a septic tank and a drainfield, also known as a soil absorption field. They serve as a simple underground wastewater treatment structure and are commonly employed in rural locations without a centralized sewer system. The tank itself is constructed from a non-permeable material such as concrete, fiberglass, or polyethylene, and its function is to hold wastewater for a period of time long enough for solids and oils to become separated from the liquid wastewater.
The tank’s construction prevents the solid sludge and oily scum from travelling into the drainfield. The liquid wastewater, however, is able to exit the tank and enter the drainfield, where it disperses and percolates through the soil and eventually discharges to groundwater. Problems arise when the drainfield is overloaded with too much liquid, causing flooding and even wastewater to backup into the sinks and drains. Ideally, the wastewater is able to percolate into the soil, during which time it is divested of nutrients, as well as harmful bacteria and viruses.
In order to determine if a septic tank repair is required, our team at Speedy Rooter will need to locate the septic tank. In a recently purchased, new home or older property where the septic tank hasn’t been located prior to our visit, we will check the yard for manhole covers and the blueprints for the property. In addition, our team will also be looking for the common symptoms of septic tank problems, including:
- Bright green grass on your drainfield, even during dry weather
- Wastewater backing up into household drains
- Muddy soil or pooling water in your basement or around your septic system
- A strong odor in the area surrounding the septic tank and drainfield
