Long Island Septic systems...
A septic system is a wastewater treatment system on premises that will
processes and purify household waste. This is called effluent. The effluent
consists, in a residential environment, of blackwater (or toilet water) and
grey water, which is from the kitchen sink, bathtub and the laundry.
The septic system has two main components... The first is a septic tank and a
leachfield (or drainfield). The primary treatment of waste occurs in the
septic tank, which is where bacteria digest organic materials in the
wastewater. After this, the effluent flows into the leachfield (for
additional or secondary treatment). It is here where the bacteria finish the
digestion and purification process, while the wastewater slowly leaches (or
infiltrates) into the soil. There are different septic
and it is important to deal with a septic company that knows the differences
and how to deal with septic
SEPTIC TANK PROBLEMS
After many years of use, a build-up of sludge (on the bottom) and scum,
floating will eventually diminish the effective capacity of the tank. What
this means is that waste passes through the tank much too fast. The solids
will eventually plug the pipes in the drain field. The overfilling of the tank
can occur many times, through the years, or even on a day-to day basis. Septic
can be costly, so it is important to choose a company that will give you a fair
price and a guarantee. Septic

is part of each day for the Doodyman...
Use of a lot of water on laundry day or other heavy water use times will
tax your system. What this does is introduces solid waste into the drainfield.
When this happens, your drain field becomes filled with water. If either
untreated effluent begins surfacing on the ground or sewage backs up into
house drains you will have a full blown problem. The common signs and symptoms
could have existed for years. When they show themselves, you need to call a
professional service that specializes in septic systems and understands how to
effectively mitigate the problem.
SEPTIC TANK MAINTENANCE
The Suffolk County Department
of Health recommends "cleaning the system every three to five years to
prevent the septic tank from becoming overburdened with sludge and scum which
will then flow out into the cesspool..." Eventually clogging will occur
when solids find their way into the system. A clogged septic system will fail
to function. Septic
is a smart preventative choice and a septic
program will insure against the high cost of septic
problems. A septic
will help determine what is needed. Septic
