Septic Pumping in Snohomish
August 20, 2015
Superior Septic is ready to help with your septic pumping in Snohomish. Septic tanks need maintenance about once every three years – possibly including getting pumped out. This prevents solids from building up and keeping the system from over-loading.
Perhaps you’ve wondered what happens to all that ;ahem; effluent once it is pumped out of your septic tank. One observer, after watching a “how-to” video of a couple demonstrating clean-up of their composting toilet noted, “Hmm. Kitty litter for people.” That observation would not be too far off. The couple simply bagged the waste, and placed it in the nearest dumpster. Back-to-the-landers who know their stuff, compost their human waste in leak-proof contained areas until it is safe to handle. However, if you have large numbers of people or a train of septic tanker trucks, those solutions just won’t work. So the matter that is pumped out of your septic tank is taken to a treatment plant where it is processed in the same way as waste that is collected via city sewer pipes. One novel use of city sewage is to brew it into methane that can be used to help generate electricity. Often, after it is properly treated, it is used as fertilizer. The important key words here are “properly treated.” After all, the whole point of having a septic system is to prevent contamination of water supplies and soil, in addition to allowing you to safely and conveniently remove it from your home.
