As a homeowner, do you ever think about the waste that goes down your drain? Do you realize the importance of having a routine septic tank pumping in Prince William County, VA? Whether you live in
Haymarket, Dumfries, Woodbridge, Quantico or any city located in the Prince William County, VA area, SES Mid Atlantic would gladly like to be able to have you as one of our customers for your necessary septic tank pumping needs. The reason we say “necessary” is because it is imperative for any homeowner who has a septic system to maintain their system with frequent septic tank pumpings.
Septic systems are onsite wastewater disposal systems that treat and dispose of sanitary waste. A typical household septic system consists of three things: a pipe coming from the house, a septic tank, and a drainfield. The wastewater from your sink, toilet, washing machine and garbage disposal flows through a pipe into the septic tank.
The septic tank holds the wastewater for about a day allowing the solids to settle forming sludge and the oil and grease to float to the surface, known as scum. Natural bacteria works to break down the sludge and scum that remain in the tank. Sludge and scum cannot be completely broken down, and that is why it is important to have your septic tank pumped in Prince William County, VA. As more water enters the septic tank from the house, the middle layer of the septic tank, the separated wastewater, is pushed out into the drainfield.
Three Reasons to Have Your Septic Tank Pumped in Prince William County, VA
It is important for homeowners in the Prince William County, VA area to be educated about how to maintain their septic system. Every homeowner should have their septic tank pumped at least every three to five years. How often you will need your septic tank pumped depends on how many people live in the household, the size of your septic tank, how often you use your washing machine, your dishwasher, and if you have a garbage disposal, how much waste you put into your disposal.
