Repair, Cleaning, & Installation of Your Anaheim Septic System
The wastewater from your home contains harmful bacteria, chemicals, and nasty odors that must be treated. Rural areas without city sewer lines will use a septic system which performs many of the same functions as a city waste treatment plant but on a much smaller level. The heart of a septic system is a large steel or concrete tank buried near the home. Wastewater enters and leaves the septic tank through openings near its top. This design helps to separate the wastewater into its individual components. Heavy material sinks to the bottom of the tank as sludge. Lighter materials float to the top as a layer of scum. What is left in between is a layer of water containing nitrogen, phosphorus, and bacteria. As new wastewater enters the tank it forces this water out of the tank and disperses it via perforated pipes buried nearby called a drain field. Here the water is absorbed into the ground.
Installation of a new septic system is best handled by a professional. You want it installed correctly for maximum performance and longevity. Leaks or other system failures are expensive to repair as the system is buried underground. Failures can also lead to rotten odors or even contaminated well water.
