How Septic Systems Operate:
As water exits the building through your plumbing system, it flows directly into the septic tank, where the primary treatment or solid settling takes place. The wastewater then disperses into the leachfield, where once settled into the leachfield, the wastewater, or the effluent, will permeate the soil, where it is absorbed and eventually redistributed as groundwater.
Reasons for a septic failure:
- Poor soil conditions are often times a cause of pertinent septic tank failures
- Excessive water usage or a septic tank inadequately sized for the amount of water generated from your house or place of business
- Presence of inorganic materials such as sludge, scum, rocks, excess sand etc. may induce clogging in the drain pipes, leading to functional inconsistencies
