Septic System And The Importance Of Sludge Removal Whether you own a family home, industrial facility, or commercial building, it is very important that you have a healthy septic system that you can trust in to work appropriately without failing and causing your sewer to back up. In some cases, if your septic system breaks down, it can't be simply fixed and must be entirely replaced. It is far better to avoid situations like this because this process can be quite labor intensive and really expensive. To keep the septic system functioning properly for quite a while, regular sludge removal can help significantly. What Causes Septic System Failure? For various reasons a septic system can and will fail due to the fact that almost all are designed to last roughly 20 - 30 years if well maintained. However, some septic systems can fail too soon due to improper sludge removal and inadequate maintenance. Some common causes of septic system collapse include: blockage caused by roots, crushed tile, and other thick substances, inadequate design, improper installation, lousy location, improper maintenance, and sludge accumulation. Although sludge buildup is the last item on the list, it is actually the most common cause of septic system failure. If the homeowners or building owners neglect to have the septic system properly maintained and the sludge is not removed preventing buildup it will eventually clog the system. The septic tank will become clogged over time when the sludge is allowed to build up which thickens and the drainage field then needs repaired or replaced if the destruction is too extensive. This unfortunate situation can be avoided when having the septic system maintained regularly where the sludge is removed and it is a smart course of action for owners to familiarize themselves with how the septic system functions and indications there could be an issue. Signs That Your Septic System Is Failing If your septic system starts to show any serious signs, then you have a major problem that needs to be addressed at once, before the system fails completely. Consistent backup of sewage into your toilets and drains is a big indicator that your system may be failing, especially if the liquid is black in color and has a strong odor. If you notice that your toilets are flushing really slowly, or if the drains throughout your house or building begin to drain more slowly than usual, it is time to have your system inspected. If you have tried drain cleaners and plungers without noticing any improvement, this is a sign something extensive is going on. If thick green grass or foliage starts to grow in the absorption field even when the weather is quite dry, this is another indication the septic system could be failing. It is deemed an indication that too much fluid rather than moving downwards, it really is moving upwards in the absorption field. While it is a good sign to have a tiny amount of liquid moving upwards, far too much means the system is not functioning properly and there could be a big problem occurring. You may also start to notice strong, disagreeable odors around your dwelling or building, due to your backed-up septic system. Be sure to hire professionals to conduct sludge removal services without delay if you notice any of these signs concerning the septic system.
