Knight's Septic Tank Inc. was set up in 1969 by Bud Knight and one pump pick up truck. Over the years he pumped out and installed septic systems, slowly but surely growing the company from what it is today. Servicing the needs of the tri-county area and beyond, Knight's Septic uses state of the art equipment to take care of all areas of residential and commercial septic systems and grease traps. Soil absorption fields need to be guarded from solids and rainfall. Unless you pump the container, solids can get into the field. Rainfall jogging off roofs or concrete areas should be drained across the earth absorption field to avoid the field from filling with water. Regular inspections and pumping are critical. But if you're not squeamish, you can examine the sludge level yourself with a device called The Sludge Judge. It costs $100 to $125 and is also accessible online. Once you have identified that your tank is one-third filled with sludge, call a contractor to come pump it out.

The septic tank system is an underground system of pipes and tanks made to treat bathroom, kitchen and laundry wastewater through effortlessly occurring bacteria and microorganisms. In more aged homes, a septic system may be considered a pipe leading from the house to a cesspool. In newer homes, a septic system usually is made of a series of pipes linking a septic reservoir, distribution container and a leach, or a septic tank works diagram

Carrying out a few simple rules - like not using too much normal water and not depositing materials in the septic reservoir that bacterias can't decompose - should help to make a septic system trouble-free for quite some time. Corresponding to proper septic fish tank maintenance, the container does need to be washed when way too many solids build up.

Drop Pack - a straightforward tank-like package used for distributing wastewater to removal areas on sloped sites using only gravity. In the drop container, the tube inlet is higher than the retailers, allowing the wastewater to stream downward to the disposal field trenches. Some drop containers can be organized over a sloped removal field so that after the highest removal field is saturated, the flow of wastewater proceeds to another drop field and trench below. Drop field outlets may also be capped to regulate the route of flow and present the saturated top trenches a rest.

Though some disinfectants, ammonia, and cleaners aren't likely to significantly damage a system, avoid washing levels of chemicals-particularly chlorine bleach-into the system. Never pour chemical drain cleaners, solvents such as paint, motor unit essential oil, pesticides, poisons or chemicals into drainpipes. Minimize use of any garbage disposer and don't put unwanted fat, grease, or espresso grounds into it.
