Bacteria in Your Septic System

Winter Garden Septic ServicesMost homeowners do not even think about a septic tank unless something goes wrong. A septic tank is interesting, as bacteria that occurs naturally breaks down waste from your home and sends the clean wastewater back out into the environment. These bacteria are an essential part of your system and ensure that your plumbing system works correctly.

There are trillions of bacteria that naturally occur in every septic tank, but they can be easily broken down into two categories: aerobic and anaerobic bacteria. Aerobic bacteria require oxygen to survive and are efficient at breaking down organic waste, as it is their food source. These bacteria are large and very sensitive to changes in the environment. The Anaerobic bacteria needs little to no oxygen to survive and is very resilient. It may not break down the waste as efficiently, but it spends time breaking down the waste to ensure that it has been properly transformed into gas and liquid.

Understanding the Drain Field

winter garden septic servicesA septic system can work well for many years when you treat it right. Staying up with tank maintenance is very important, but you also make sure you are attentive to your drain field. Without it, your system will not work at all.

When waste and water enters your tank, it has to leave eventually. Most septic tanks tend to drain out any excess water to the drain field by either gravity or a pump. This wastewater slowly flows out of the drains, entering the ground and flows downwards to a groundwater aquifer. These systems work well for homeowners, but anyone living in a house should be mindful of how much water they allow to go down the drain each day.

For example, doing too many loads of laundry can cause damage to your drain field.  If you do not space out your laundry, you will begin to wash too much lint through your system. This is not a problem if you only do one or two loads a day, but multiple loads will push the fiber into your drain field and cause clogs.
