How Septic Systems Work

Your septic system is an underground system designed to process wastewater and other waste materials. The large tank allows solid materials to settle at the bottom while liquid remains at the top, waiting to be pumped from the tank into the drain field. Layers of rock and dirt filter out the bacteria, therefore cleaning the water before it is re-absorbed into the ground.

If your shower drains are slower than usual and there's an unpleasant smell coming from the drain, it may be time for septic pumping. Other signs that your septic system needs to be pumped include:

  • Wet patches or puddles around the drain field
  • Gurgling noises coming from drains
  • Continuous backups in the plumbing system
  • Sewage making its way into toilets and sinks

Left untreated, these problems can lead to more serious issues and higher expenses that come with repairs. We’ll provide an inspection with your pumping to make sure you never have to worry about any lurking issues.

When Do I Need a New Septic System?

Knowing when it is time for a new septic system is very important, as an old, failed septic system can lead to major disruption to your day-to-day life. Regular maintenance and inspections are the ideal way of ensuring that you won't need a new system prematurely, but every septic system needs to be replaced eventually. Your typical system can last up to 25 years. If it’s made of concrete rather than plastic, that age can be closer to 30.
