Septic Tank Maintenance in Kitchener, ON

What Is a Septic System?

A septic system is an on-site treatment and disposal system buried in the ground that consists of a tank and soil absorption area. The purpose of the septic tank is to receive household wastes such as laundry, bath water, body wastes, etc. Solids settle to the bottom while grease and soaps rise to the top.

How It Works

Bacterial action decomposes part of the solids and grease as the liquid passes into a leaching system. Inorganic and hard-to-decompose material remains and gradually fills the tank until the solids pass through and plug the leaching system. With routine cleaning, septic tank maintenance, and being careful of what goes into your septic system, it can last for many years. You can prevent problems by never disposing of the following in your septic system:

  • Acids
  • Polishes
  • Caustic Drain Cleaners
  • Oil
  • Paint
  • Diapers
  • Feminine Products

Dangers of Solid Materials

Solid material overflowing into the absorption area, or weeping field, should be avoided at all costs. When solids overflow, they clog the soil pores and cause septic systems to fail. Bacterial deficiency and lack of sludge removal can cause this and could result in an overflow.

Bacteria Is Essential

For a septic tank to work properly, bacteria must be active. Bacteria are present in many household wastes, but many home care products, such as toilet cleaners, detergents, and bleach, can destroy them. We have found that Bio-Clean® is a great product to use as a supplement because it contains millions of helpful bacteria necessary for the health of your septic system.
