How long do septic systems last?
Septic systems are designed to provide long-term, effective treatment of household and commercial waste when operated and maintained properly. However, most systems that fail prematurely are due to improper maintenance. Less serious problems are usually with plumbing issues like pipe blockages. Sometimes, the septic tank, although durable, can deteriorate or have other structural problems. Johnson’s septic service is happy to solve any of these issues if they arise. The most serious septic problems are caused by a clogged drainfield.
What is the replacement or reserve area?
This is an area that may be used for replacing or expanding the drainfield. It must meet the same criteria, such as acceptable soils, setbacks, etc., as a regular drainfield and should be protected in the same way.
How do I know my septic system is in good working order?
A septic system evaluation can be performed by a septic system professional. Some health departments and districts can perform this service, usually for a fee. Contact your local health department or district for more information.
What happens when a septic system fails? How can I tell?
Usually, when a septic system fails, the drainfield is not functioning properly. When a septic tank overflows, the effluent (waste water in the system) can pass to the drainfield, clogging up the pipes. This causes sinks and toilets to back up in the house. Other signs include: slow draining toilets and drains, an odor of sewage, or a wet area on or near the drainfield.
How can I prevent a septic failure?
Maintenance, maintenance, maintenance! If your system has been properly designed, sited, and installed, the rest is up to you. Inspect your system annually and pump as needed (usually every 3-5 years), avoid excess water use, and watch what you put down the drain and flush down the toilet. For additional information, contact Johnson’s Septic Service and find out what we can do for you.
Can my septic system contaminate nearby streams and water bodies?
Yes, particularly if the effluent is not adequately treated, as in a failing system. Untreated effluent is a health hazard and can cause many human diseases. Once this untreated effluent enters the groundwater, you and your neighbor’s wells can be contaminated. Also, if this sewage reaches nearby streams or water bodies, shellfish beds and recreational swimming areas may also be jeopardized. Like all good floridians, we know how important clean water is to our communities and strive to make sure your septic system is safe and reliable.
Why is water conservation important?
Septic tanks are mainly settling chambers. They allow time for solids and scum to separate out from wastewater, so clear liquid can safely go to the drainfield. Over time, the scum and sludge layers get thicker, leaving less space and time for the waste-water to settle before passing to the drainfield. There are limits to the amount of water septic systems can treat. For every gallon entering the tank, one gallon is pushed out. In some cases, excess water may back up into your house or overload the drainfield and surface in the yard. Large volumes of water in short periods of time may also not allow solids enough time to settle, and may be carried out to the drainfield, ultimately clogging the pipes. If this has happened in your home or commercial building, contact us to have it fixed as quickly as possible.
I’ve heard I shouldn’t use a garbage disposal. Why is that?
Garbage disposals have a dramatic impact on how often you’ll need to pump your septic tank. Food particles usually are not digested by the bacteria and accumulate as scum. If a large amount of water enters the tank, it can then push the food particles into the drainfield, causing clogging. If you must use a garbage disposal, your tank will need to be pumped more frequently. Disposals are an especially handy tool in the home kitchen, so it is important to us that our residential customers get timely and reliable service.
Should I be careful of what I pour down the drain?
Yes, many materials that are poured down the drain do not decompose and remain in the tank. In addition to minimal use of a garbage disposal (see question above), don’t pour grease, fats, and oils down the drain or place coffee grounds and egg shells in the disposal or down the drain. Keep chemicals out of your system. If many contaminants are in your septic system, call us to have it fixed.
What shouldn’t I flush down the toilet?
Flush only human waste and toilet paper down the toilet—avoid flushing dental floss, cat litter (including “flushable” varieties), hair, Kleenex, cigarette butts, cotton swabs, feminine hygiene products, condoms, paper towels, static cling sheets, diapers, and disposable wipes. These items could clog your septic system components and cause a failure.
