Septic tanks and pipes are key components of small-scale sewage treatment systems used in areas where a connection to municipal sewage infrastructure is not possible. About 25% of homes and businesses in the US maintain a septic system.
Proper installation requires the identification of a drain field, which must be strategically located for environmental safety. A site is then excavated to accommodate a tank to collect wastewater and sewage from a home or office building, an outflow pipe, distribution box, and a network of perforated pipes. Pumps are often included to move waste water out of a holding tank into the drain field. If installed and maintained properly, septic systems can last between 25 to 35 years.
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, it is the building owners’ responsibility to maintain their septic systems. Call us to inspect, repair your septic system, or install a new system if it’s time to upgrade. The correct installation and maintenance of a septic system is critic for the longevity of the septic system along with protecting the environment.
