Our technicians can perform installation of new septic systems.
Septic systems are often used on properties that are located in rural areas, processing the liquid and solid waste that comes from a home or business. If your property has a septic system, it’s important to know how to properly care for and maintain it to prevent serious issues. The main components of a septic system include the tank and the drain field, although some septic systems also include drain fields, lift stations, and other necessary parts. A septic tank is a concrete box buried in the ground, which serves as the waste storage location. All wastewater and waste that come through your home’s plumbing system will move into the septic tank, where they are treated with chemicals and bacteria. Solid waste stays behind, which forms layers at the bottom, while treated liquid waste moves through a series of pipes to the drain field.
The drain field of your septic system includes a set of perforated pipes that are buried in the ground, often surrounded by a layer of gravel that helps to provide additional filtration. After the wastewater is properly treated, it moves back into the soil and is absorbed. Your septic tank should be pumped out regularly to remove the layers of solid waste. Regular maintenance of septic systems includes septic tank pumping and an inspection of your system’s components.
