Q. I had my tank pumped out last week. Is it possible that it's full already?
A. Not only is it possible, it's necessary. Septic tanks are designed to operate full for proper water/solids separation.
Q. Is there anything I can put in my tank to avoid pumping?
A. No. Some of the material in the tank is not biodegradable. This material must be pumped out.
Q. My system backed up recently for the first time in many years. Why should I start maintaining now?
A. Even though the backup may have been caused by broken pipes, tree roots intruding into your lines, or some other obstruction, it is also possible that this backup is the first sign of system failure.
Q. The drainage in my house seems to be sluggish and sometimes temporarily backs up. I also sometimes have a foul odor and mushy ground in my backyard. Are these signs of septic system failure?
A. These may or may not be signs of a deteriorating septic system. Contact us to discuss these problems.
