THE RISK OF AN OVERFLOWING SEPTIC TANK
Without periodic cleaning and clearing, the effluent content of your septic tank will eventually thicken. The outlet line can then become blocked, overfilling the tank and stopping it from working. Depending on your septic tank model, an alarm may warn you when you reach this point, but in many cases the first sign of a blockage can be unpleasant smells, sewage backup, or overflow above the tank’s drain field.
HOW TO AVOID
All of this is best avoided, which is why you’re better off having your home’s septic tank cleaned and checked on a regular basis. How often will vary depending on your septic tank model and your home’s number of occupants, but generally speaking, if it’s been 2 years or more then it’s high time your septic tank gets a clean!
HOW DRAIN NINJAS CAN HELP
Septic tanks obviously pose a significant hygiene risk, and they need to be cleaned and cleared by a professional with the proper equipment and training. After you’ve made an appointment with Drain Ninjas, one of our expert team members will turn up with a vacuum truck, and seal off the area immediately around the tank. They will remove the built up effluent in your septic tank while ensuring that a small layer of water is left behind. This is important to ensure that the bacteria required to break down the tank’s effluent content are able to regrow - some septic tank cleaners will leave the tank dry, which can result in the bacteria needing to be replaced.
Drain Ninjas specialise in a thorough service which ensures that your septic tank will continue to function as it should. In addition to clearing the tank correctly and disposing of waste safely at a local treatment plant, we will check the tank for cracks, make sure that inlet and outlet pipes are in working order, and remove and clear any filters. We will let you know if anything needs further attention and can schedule your next septic tank clean in advance so that you have one less thing to think about. From the second appointment onwards we can advise on a time frame between cleans based on your septic tank’s usage.
