Don't Be Deceived: What You Should Know About Septic Repairs
Just like any plumbing system, septic systems require regular septic services in Edmonton, Sherwood Park, and Strathcona County from a reliable and professional company such as Magnan - NSD Vac Truck Service.
It is important to work with a company you know you can trust, because not every company providing sump services in the area is going to be upfront about the kinds of repairs you need.
Septic systems are quite durable and can last a long time, but are eventually going to need repairs. Here are some of the different parts of your septic system which may break over time:
It is not uncommon for the float switch inside the septic tank to malfunction because it has become caught on something or because the water level has fallen too low. A broken float switch can sometimes make it seem like the pump is malfunctioning.
Of course, a septic system's pump can require its own repairs. If too many biodegradable items have been flushed down the toilet, then the pipes impeller can become jammed. Pumps, if not plugged into their own outlet, can also sometimes stop working because they are not receiving enough power.
The septic filter needs to be cleaned on a regular basis or it can become clogged and compromise the function of the entire septic system.
Septic tank baffles are also susceptible to breakage, and will do so after enough rust has eaten away steel baffles or enough sulfuric acid has eaten away concrete baffles.
Drain lines can become damaged or may even completely collapse if they are underneath a location where vehicles regularly drive and park. A drain line problem can be tricky to locate without the help of Edmonton area septic services.
Septic tanks can run into many different potential problems. Some of the most common ones may occur because the toilet was used to dispose of non-biodegradable items or food waste, because damaging chemicals found their way down a household's drains, or because tree and other plant roots have clogged or ruptured certain components of the system.
The drain field can likewise run into its share of numerous potential issues. Drainage field pipes can become clogged with layers of biofilm, heavy rainfall can cause the drain field to stop draining properly, and flushing or dumping salted water into a home's drain can also cause the drain field to stop working as it should.
