A Good Septic Company Who’s Licensed and Insured
When doing a search for “septic system” you will find many companies offering products that will amazingly clear up all of your septic problems and save you the cost of having to install new leach fields.
When considering a product like this I think a little common sense must be exercised. First of all, let’s consider a few things before you rush out and purchase one of these products.
The first thing you want to think about is what type of septic system do you have? In a traditional gravel system there are a few common things that will cause your septic system to fail. I have listed these below.
Outlet baffle has disintegrated and solid material is making its way into the leach fields. Keep in mind that some older tanks do not have a center wall baffle dividing the tank into two separate compartments — when this happens there is nothing to prevent solid material from making its way into the drain field once the outlet baffle has failed.
I won’t go into other issues regarding the failure of alternative septic systems as the reasons for failure are just too many to list in one short writing. Suffice it to say you should go back to the original installer of your system and let them do the troubleshooting. The reasons for alternative septic system failure can be the same as those listed above, but can also be attributed to the mechanical components. If you are overly ambitious you can attempt to educate yourself on how your alternative septic system works and troubleshoot yourself, but I believe it wise to find a professional and have them assess the situation. Often times a good installer will be willing to troubleshoot the problem for free and provide you an estimate to repair the work. Best to call a Licensed Septic System Company to be certain your waste water tank and drain field are working properly.
