How Do Septic Systems Work?
Placed underground, septic tanks are capable of holding multiple gallons of waste water. In fact, how many gallons depends on the size of the tank you have. Tank sizes range from 1,000 to 1,500 gallons or more. The septic tank connects to your main plumbing line and all of the wastewater from your home or business are directed to your septic tank via that line.
As wastewater enters your septic tank, it separates into three different layers: fats and oils float to the top and are known as scum, water remains in the middle, and all of the solids weigh down to the bottom and become sludge. Bacteria in the tank will break down the sludge into a liquid form.
At the top of your tank is a pipe that leads to your drain field. When the waste water reaches the top of your tank, it will go down to your drain field and be filtered through your soil. If you're worried about contamination, your soil will actually clean the wastewater, preventing any contamination.
Can Heavy Rain Cause A Septic Backup?
Yes it is common for heavy amounts of rain to cause a septic backup. Large amounts of rain can quickly flood the ground around the drainfield of the system. This extra water makes the ground too saturated for water to flow out of your septic system.
Professional Plumbers to Keep Your Septic System Functioning
One of the great things about septic systems is their long lifespans. Properly cared for, they can last upwards of 40 years. Therefore, it’s important that you get routine maintenance and any necessary repairs. Fortunately, it’s easy to tell when something is amiss with your septic system.
Signs of this include:
- You have wet spots in your yard
- Your pipes and plumbing system are noisy
- Your sinks and drains constantly backup
- You notice foul odors coming from your plumbing system
- You smell sewage in your yard or around your property
Our plumbers have 10 years of experience in providing expert Greenville septic services, which means we will arrive promptly, diagnose the issue efficiently, and conduct any repairs.
Why You Need Your Septic Tank Pumped
As waste water continues to fill your septic tank, sludge will continue to build up. While the bacteria in your tank will help control the amount of sludge, it is not enough to clear all of it. Therefore, the sludge and solids will build up and clog the pipe leading to your drain field. You can avoid such clogs by getting your septic tank pumped. We recommend having your tank pumped once every three to five years, but this also depends on the size of your house and the amount of wastewater you produce.
When you fail to get your septic tank pumped, it can lead to:
- The drain field becoming swampy
- Wastewater backing up into your home
- Slow drains becoming even slower
- The smell of sewage permeating your yard and home
If you notice any of these signs, be sure to call our Greenville septic repair plumbers. We'll inspect your tank to make sure there aren't any leaks, pump it, and restore your home or business to normal order.
We Offer Trenchless Sewer Services
It used to be that if you had an issue with your sewer system, plumbers would have to completely dig up your property to access your pipes. Luckily, that is not the case any longer. At Charter Plumbing, LLC, we offer trenchless sewer services in Greenville. When we arrive at your property, we will first locate the issue using a high definition camera that we insert in your sewer line. This allows us to diagnose the problem more accurately without the need for excavation. We will discuss our findings with you and whether a repair or replacement would be the best solution.
We have two different trenchless repair methods: relining or pipe bursting. Relining is when we insert a synthetic tube in your old pipe, which then takes its place. We typically use this method to repair small cracks or breaks because there’s no need for an entirely new sewer line. Pipe bursting is best when you need replacement. During this method, our top-notch plumbers pull a sewer line in place of your old pipes, bursting them as it is pulled through.
Trenchless repair methods are especially beneficial because they reduce the amount of downtime and destruction to your home or business.
