Details About Septic Tank Cleaning & Septic Tank Installation
A septic tank means an groundwater sedimentation tank that is required for wastewater treatment via the method of biological decomposition and drainage.
The purpose of a septic tank is to safely dispose wastewater. It is very useful in the areas where there is poor drainage system and the mains sewage network do not exist. The septic tank accumulates the excreta and wastewater in one large underground tank. So, there should be proper knowledge about septic tank installation.
Fundamentals of septic system for houses:
A septic contains a simple design. It belongs to a watertight container beneath the ground (mostly rectangular or round) that is built up with fiberglass, plastic or concrete.
The tank is attached with two pipes (for inlet and outlet). The inlet pipe accumulates the waste water in the septic tank. It is very long to divide solid and liquid waste from each other. The outlet pipe alias the drain field, moves the preprocessed wastewater from the septic tank and distributes it uniformly in the soil and watercourses.
Finally, the wastewater is split up in following 3 layers :-
- The top layer belongs to oils and grease and stays afloat over all the waste. It is known as scum.
- The middle layer belongs to the wastewater together with waste particles.
- The bottom layer contains harder particles which are tougher as compared to water and develops a layer of sludge.

Inside the tank bacteria from the wastewater decomposes the solid waste quickly so that the liquids can be detached and discharged conveniently.
Septic Tank Cleaning
Septic tank cleaning is very important. A septic tank should be cleaned on a regular basis (within 1 year for smaller tanks) so that the toxins and antibacterial substances can't be accumulated to kill the bacteria that destroys the waste.
Many household cleaners develop sludge and solid waste in the septic tank and drainfield lines. It causes the septic system failure i.e. the solid waste obstructs the system and runoffs into the watercourse or out of the access grating.
Failure in the septic systemmaintenance & cleaning may lead to waterborne illnesses, it also smells fowl.
There should be a proper septic tank cleaning routine to safeguard the system from clogging and break down. The best waste treatment companies should be hired to deal with the septic system and guarantee its correct functioning.
