Waste water removal is the process of removing the contaminated water that is submerged with waste and buildup.
In order to keep the septic tank running long term, this needs to be done frequently, removing old water and replacing it with fresh water.
This is because the excessive waste water can easily build up or cause clogging in the tank which will cause your tank troubles to run smoothly in the future or as long as the waste water lingers and continues to grow.
With waste water removal comes the initial cleaning process of the tank, which is equally as important and crucial to the maintenance of the tank as a whole.
Removing the waste water is the initial step to cleaning the tank as most of the bacteria lies in the waste water which can cause brims around the tank or leave residue at the bottom.
Your tank should be cleaned often enough that the flow of water can easily continue and the waste water doesn’t build up beyond the point of cleaning to enhance the tank’s functionality.
Waste Water Removal
Waste water, or effluent, is the water that’s contaminated or liquid waste that needs disposing of from the tank.
In order to do this, a professional may need to pump your tank to remove the sewage or a functioning filter will simply do it for you.
The filter in the septic tank separates the sewage into categories based on their composite, such as liquids and solids.
If the filter is not adequately filtering your sewage then it might be time for a new one. Otherwise, removing the waste water is as simple as cleaning the section where the water has been filtered.
Balancing Water Levels
Balancing water levels is another service we offer to help regulate the amount of water in your tank. When your tank is overflowing with water or doesn’t have enough, you might find it harder to use appliances or excessive odors and buildup in and around the septic tank’s location.
To avoid this problem, we help assess and manage the appropriate water levels of the tank and give you the information needed so you can do the same when we’re not around.
If your septic tank is not separating waste appropriately or you notice that your waste is being disposed of in the tank together, then you’re likely in need of a new filter.
A new filter is needed to separate the waste and deter hard waste from clogging the filters that separate liquid waste. The filter is also intended to separate scum from both solid and liquid waste, so when your filter is failing to do so, it can easily build up in unwanted locations and make your septic tank faulty.
Filter changes should be done often or when a professional septic tank pro provides an inspection or pumping service. It’s always best to check that your filter is separating waste rather than letting it flow into one corner together.
