Septic Repair in Marysville
September 16, 2015
Superior Septic Services can help with your septic repair in Marysville. Septic tanks are passive systems, so there isn’t a lot that can go wrong with them. But Murphy ’s Law says, “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong,” and septic systems are no exception to that rule.
Human misuse is the greatest cause of septic tank failure. People will sometimes purchase septic tank additives, thinking that it will make the decay process go along faster. Actually, these powders and liquids can interfere with the natural bacteria that would ordinarily break down solids contained in the tank. Another damaging activity is to plant a bush or tree on or near the leach field. The roots from large plants can dig into the pipe system that is designed to carry the liquid household waste to the leach field area. One family, noticing a swampy residue, planted a willow tree in the wet place, mistakenly thinking that it would soak up the run-off. A third thing that can damage a leach field is to drive heavy machinery over it, or use it as a parking lot. It should have grass, and possibly some shallow-rooted flowers over it – nothing more.
Of course, even if you do everything just right, time can break down the materials from which the tank is constructed. At that point, it becomes a hazard to humans and animals who might walk across it and fall in when the material crumbles beneath them.
