Septic Tank Install/Replace and Repair in Gilbert, AZ
Septic tanks are the alternative solution for residences not attached to sewer lines. The tank is installed underground, where it collects and performs treatment of wastewater. The additionally-installed soil absorption system disperses cleaned water into the ground. Septic tank installation varies depending on the particular situation. The tank's material and size, the makeup of the soil, and potential required permissions can make each installation unique.
To ensure the septic tank installation is done right, the site needs to be surveyed and the soil tested. The results will influence the design of the tank. Before the installation starts, the work on-site can only begin once the necessary permits are applied for and approved. After that, the excavation can start. The hole for the tank needs to be no less than two feet deep, and additional holes are required for the dispersion system. Once the excavation is done, the tank and the dispersion or absorption system can be placed. The installation is completed when the septic tank is hooked to the residence via pipework.
Warning Signs of a Septic Tank In Need of Repair
A septic tank manages wastewater far from sight, and it's easy to forget about this crucial household installation. However, the tank can develop issues over time, and those need to be addressed as soon as possible. Faulty septic tanks can cause extensive damage similar to water damage. Since the tank is filled with septic waste, the consequences can be much more disastrous than clean water floods or leaks. Besides regular inspections, everyone owning a septic tank should learn to recognize the first signs of problems with the system.
First of all, knowing how old the septic tank is and how regularly it was serviced is essential. Tanks older than 20 years or those that haven't had regular maintenance in more than two years are most likely to malfunction. Old or poorly maintained tanks should be inspected immediately, even if it seems like they're fully functional.
Most septic tank issues can be noticed inside the residence. The obvious signs are backflow, slow draining in every drain, and strong septic odor near the drains. Backflow is the most severe issue since the wastewater can back up into toilets, sinks, and showers. If there's no backflow prevention installed, this can present a serious health hazard.
Some warning signs of a septic tank in need of repair can be found outside. Isolated patches of lawn that are suddenly thriving or dying out are often a sign of a septic tank leak. This is because wastewater will concentrate on a specific spot and change the soil makeup there. Another sign could be the presence of multiple puddles in one area—this could be water from the tank surfacing on the lawn. The most dangerous indication of issues with the septic tank is contaminated groundwater, especially if the property has a well.
