Our technicians at Tampa Bay Septic specialize in all things related to septic tanks.
A septic system includes several key components that work together to process and store waste on a property. One of these components is the septic tank, which is a concrete box buried beneath the ground. It has pipes on either side, which allow for the transfer and movement of the waste that comes through the drains in a home. The waste moves in through one side, where it is treated. The treated liquid waste then moves through the other pipes, where it enters the drain field.
Although septic tanks are quite durable, they can sustain damage when they’re not maintained and treated properly. The use of certain household products, including chemical cleaners, bath oils, and any products that contain latex, can damage septic tanks. If you’re in the habit of flushing grease or oils down the kitchen sink, you may be causing damage to your septic tank. Anything that isn’t biodegradable also shouldn’t be flushed down a drain that leads to a septic tank. Additionally, parking heavy vehicles or machinery over the top of where the tank is buried can cause crushing damage.
