The number one cause of the failed septic tank at your Warrenton, VA home is the washing machine. However, there things you can do to prevent the septic tank from failing.
Washing machines produce a lot of lint, but your lint trap only catches about 5% of lint, because lint particles are tiny. In fact they are so tiny they are capable of passing right through the septic and settling in the drain field where they eventually end up clogging the soil. When lint becomes trapped in the drain field it’s nearly impossible to remove and can end up costing you thousands of dollars in repairs.
So how do you avoid a lint-clogged drain field?
If you follow these tips, you will go a long way towards preventing septic tank failure at your Warrenton VA home. Investing a few hundred dollars into your septic system, having it routinely pumped, and ensuring the right things are being flushed and sent down the drain, can save you thousands and stop a disgusting mess from happening.
