Septic Tank Info
The most important thing in a septic tanks life is having a regular septic tank emptying service. Why is this so important for a septic tank? Having your tank emptied at least once a year will mean your tank should not overflow under normal use. If you find that you are having your septic tank emptied on a more frequent basis then there could be a problem.
Problems that could occur with a septic tank!
There are so many things that could go wrong if you don’t have a scheduled empty. So what could cause your septic tank to overflow? First of check the size of the septic tank, if you have a 3 man tank and you have 5 people living at your address then you are over using the tank. If you have checked the size and found that you have the right size tank then it’s time to call Tardis who will empty your septic tank and if requested give a wash down.
How can you prolong the life of your tank?
There are a number of ways in which to help prolong the life of your sewage tank. First of don’t pour antibacterial chemicals down your kitchen sink as the antibacterial liquid could kill all the friendly bacteria that sits at the bottom of your tank that digests all the sludge, killing this bacteria will mean a build-up in sludge which could clog your drain pipes and could lead to having them need a high pressure jetting service to remove the blockage. Other things to look out for tree roots breaking in through the side of the tank, if dealt with early the tank will more likely be fixed instead of having a completely new one installed.
So remember always have your septic tank emptied on a regular basis and don’t put too much antibacterial down your kitchen.
