Do you have a septic system and are experiencing slow water drain from your shower, bathtub, sink or other areas? You may need our Septic Tank Pumping services!
If you experience slow fixture drains or gurgling noises in your drains, do not ignore them. These are normally the first signs of problems.
If you notice that the sink, bathtub or shower is slow to drain, it may be something that can be fixed easily or the start of a serious problem.
Warning! If you experience slow drainage, your first thought may be to use a drain cleaning product, don’t. Many drain cleaning products can be harmful to your drain field and surrounding ground water, even though they may say “safe for septic tanks” on the label.
Your septic tank needs to be pumped when it reaches 1/3 of its capacity. The capacity is measured by the thickness of the solids in your septic tank which includes both in sludge on the bottom and the scum layer floating on top.
When your septic tank becomes too full, it will result in the filter in the outlet baffle starting to plug. This plugging action will cause the water level inside the tank to rise, resulting in restricting the flow of effluent.
Basically, the rising water level will slow the flow coming into the tank from your home.
It may be that this is a clogged problem in one area only and that professional snaking can easily fix the problem. Or it may be a more serious problem developing. Call us before it creates a big mess for you so that we can diagnose it and fix it.
