The septic tank is one of the least thought-of systems in your Warrenton, VA home but in reality, all homeowners should pay closer attention to the signs exhibited by a septic tank. The most septic tank failures occur because of specific common causes that can typically be avoided by most Washington DC homeowners.
Perhaps one of the most critical factors associated with septic system performance is the type of soil that is used to create the septic system absorption field. While this may seem like a less than important factor of a septic system design, the type of soil has great influence on the reliability and functionality of the septic tank. Soil that is too loose will allow waste water to pass through too easily and will not clean it appropriately. On the other hand, soil that is too dense will not allow waste water to pass through at all and will eventually lead to a breakdown in the septic system. In order for waste water to be processed and cleaned, it must pass through the soil.
Other common causes of septic tank failure include improper design, poor system use, and maintenance by the Northern Virginia homeowner. When the septic system is not designed appropriately, you may find trouble arises in your septic tank. Design flaws may range from the wrong type of soil used to an inadequate sized drain field.
