A septic system is a wastewater treatment facility that separates solid waste from liquid waste using aerobic bacteria and filters out solids using an underground absorption field or settling tank. The liquid waste is then returned to the earth through percolation (or absorption) fields, where the remaining solid matter is broken down into harmless byproducts.
Septic systems are one of the essential components in keeping our water supply clean and contaminant-free. Without them, wastewater would pollute groundwater supplies used by people living near these systems and contaminate well water used by people living farther away from these facilities. Septic systems provide an inexpensive means of treating wastewater to be safely disposed of without affecting nearby wells or waterways.
This type of toilet uses less water than regular toilets but still provides a comfortable experience for those using it. They are also easier to maintain than older models, so that they won't need as much attention from homeowners or plumbers.
A high-efficiency toilet uses less water than a traditional model by utilizing an air chamber instead of flushing every time someone leaves the bathroom. The air chamber allows natural decomposition to take place inside the tank without chemicals or water. This process can reduce the amount of wastewater produced by up to 70%.
If you're like most people, you probably haven't given too much thought to your faucets and showerheads. But what if we told you that they're significant contributors to the amount of water used in your home? That's right -- the little things can make a big difference.
Faucet aerators are simple devices that screw onto your existing faucet handles and reduce the flow rate from two gallons per minute (GPM) to 0.5 GPM or less. High-efficiency showerheads limit water flow to 2.5 GPM or less. These devices will help reduce your family's water usage by 30 percent or more!
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends installing both types of devices in any home with young children and older adults who may have physical limitations or health issues limiting their mobility. And if you have a septic system, they're essential because they can help prevent clogs in your leach field lines and pipes leading from your house to the leach field itself.
An Energy Star-rated washing machine uses less water and less energy than non-Energy Star-rated models. The energy savings can be as much as $90 per year! A lower water level setting on your washer will also help reduce your water usage and save money in the long run.
In addition to saving money on your energy bill, using an Energy Star-rated washing machine will help prevent soil erosion from detergent runoff into our waterways and streams.
The most common cause of septic tank failure is improper waste disposal.
The septic tank is designed to hold water and solid waste until the soil in the leach field can properly treat it, but if the water isn't appropriately discharged, the system can become clogged. If you want to avoid costly repairs in the future and want to protect your family from health hazards, here are some tips for proper waste disposal:
Never flush anything other than human waste and toilet paper down your toilet. Items such as feminine hygiene products, diapers, cigarette butts, and other non-biodegradable items can damage your septic system and cause serious health problems in your home.
Do not put grease down the drain or wash grease into your sink or garbage disposal. Grease will clog drains and cause sewer backups that can lead to significant problems with your plumbing system.
Keep food scraps out of the garbage disposal unit by disposing of them in a compost bin or garbage can instead. While these items may be biodegradable, they still contain nutrients that could slow down or even stop the digestion process in your septic tank if they aren't disposed of properly.
A septic tank will last for 20 years or longer if properly maintained. Maintaining a septic system is not significant and can save repair costs. Most importantly, leaving your septic system untended may result in a backup that pollutes groundwater and leads to environmental damage. Metro Septic Pumping can help with your septic tank pumping and maintenance needs.
