What is a septic system?
The individual parts of a septic system consist of the septic tank, a distribution box, and a drain field (leach lines). The septic tank contains baffles which prevent any scum that floats to the surface and sludge that settles to the bottom from passing out of the tank.
From the septic tank, the liquid waste flows into a small distribution box where it then flows out into several pipes. These pipes then deliver the liquid waste flows into a small area known as the drain field or leach lines. The soil acts as a filter to remove any small amounts of solids that may be carried along with the liquid.
The sludge in the bottom of the tank must be pumped out periodically to prevent backup in the house and to keep any excess sludge from getting into the leach field. By adding live bacteria like Pro-Pump, you will replenish the bacteria needed to keep your septic system functioning properly.
What are the signs of a failed septic system?
When your septic system is failing, you will notice slow-draining drains in the house as well as water surfacing over the septic system outside.
