Septic Tanks are Part of a Comprehensive System

Most people tend to worry about how septic tanks perform, and if theirs is getting the right attention, but this is only part of what handles all the waste and wastewater in the building.  There is also the interior plumbing, the pipe that brings everything to the tank, gas release vents, and a water distribution system that delivers the water back to Mother Nature to finish processing it when it’s ready.

Septic Tanks Handle the “Dirty Work”

Most of the work is done inside the septic tank.  All the wastewater is brought from the building to the tank outside.  The tank’s natural design helps ensure the material that arrives divides into three sections.  The heavier waste sinks to the bottom and is referred to as “sludge,” while the lighter materials form a layer of “scum” that rises to the top.  The refined fluids in the center are called “effluent,” and this is what safely exits the tank and returns to nature.

Septic tank services do require some specialized TLC that most homeowners can’t do on their own.  At Total Septic Service, the technicians we present can handle it all, with the utmost professionalism.  Whether you need general septic tank services, septic pumping & cleaning or are facing an emergency due to a backup, our experienced technicians are glad to help.  Contact us and schedule your appointment right away.  Servicing the Quad Cities, Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois areas.
