The purpose of Septic Tanks is to allow for all wastewater from your home to drain from the house. A septic tank separates the oils, grease, and solids from the wastewater into 3 groups:
- Sludge – heavy material that has entered and settled at the bottom of your septic tank
- Scum – light liquids that have entered and float to the surface of the septic tank
- Partially Treated Wastewater – any remaining water that rests in the middle of the septic tank
Proper operation and regular maintenance of your septic tank will allow it to run smoothly. If solids build up due to poor maintenance, they may enter the drainfield. If the drainfield becomes blocked, it may result in damage to the entire septic tank system.
The last thing any septic system owner wants is to deal with odours, water pollution and the cost of repairs. Drain Pro Victoria’s septic system plumbing services provide your septic tank with the proper maintenance and care to ensure it continues to operate normally.
