Proseptic: Identifying and Resolving Septic Tank Problems
There are many factors that may cause septic tank problems, making diagnosis difficult leading to clogged septic tank filter, back up septic system issue, mechanical malfunctions, and drain field problems. Septic system problems lead to messy cleanups, septic system odor inside the house, inconvenient smells, and possible tank replacement. When it comes to the most common septic tank problems, they include sludge accumulation, broken drain lines, broken septic tank baffles, tree root damage, dirty or clogged septic filter, inadequate septic enzyme populations, sulfite and bio-mat build up, sludge and solids without treatment, grease capping, broken drain field piping, clogged drain fields (from tree roots), improper drain field location, and old septic tank design.
Septic tank problems may result because of tree roots penetrating the tank, causing leaking of nasty stuff, creating a horrible mess, and malfunctioning. Cracks or fractures may appear on the walls due to underground movement and possibly shifting your septic tank, causing problems. The weight of heavy machinery or vehicles such as tractor and cement mixer driven on top of a septic tank may cause too much pressure and damage to the tank. In some cases, there re septic tanks that literally ‘pop’ out of the ground due to hydrostatic pressure or large volume of water underneath the ground reaching the highest level, and putting great pressure on the septic tank. Old septic tanks are over 100 years old without dip pipes and are single-chambers.
A damaged dip pipe or T-pipe also cause septic tank issues. When it comes to septic tank installation, it is important to follow applicable standards and environment agency legislation. It is important for a new septic tank installation to undergo a percolation test to ensure that the ground’s condition is appropriate because a wet ground may lead to soakaway and septic tank system issues. It is important to have a yearly septic tank preventive maintenance and inspection at least once a year by calling a professional local tanker company so you are reminded when is the best time to empty your septic tank.
