An Alexandria Septic Company and You

Most homes without access to the city sewer treat their waste using a home septic system. A properly installed and maintained septic system from a professional Alexandria Septic Company protects groundwater quality and treats wastewater wherever city sewer service is not possible. There are two parts to a septic system: the septic tank and the drain field.

Approximately 25 million homes across the US rely on their septic tank to treat their home wastewater. An Alexandria Septic Company can design, install, and maintain your septic system to keep it at optimum functionality. When a septic tank works properly, it is extremely effective in protecting the health of your family, and the environment.

With the proper care and regular maintenance that an Alexandria Septic Company provides, your septic tank will function for years. Each septic tank is custom-sized to the household, and needs to be kept free of harsh chemicals to operate at maximum efficiency.

How an Alexandria Septic Company Works on Your Tank

An Alexandria Septic Company has experience going back several years, in septic cleaning and septic system maintenance. Considering this extensive work history, there is no reason why you should not trust them with your septic system. However, it's important for you as a homeowner to understand how your septic tank works, even if professionals from an Alexandria Septic Company will be maintaining it for you.

Though every septic system is slightly different, each septic tank works in the same manner. Wastewater from your house is carried into the septic tank by gravity. The tank holds this wastewater for one or two days, during which time anaerobic bacteria inside the tank break down the substances in the water. These bacteria separate the wastewater into solids, greases, oils, and floating substances.

While bacteria inside your septic tank will do a fine job of breaking down your home's wastewater, the professionals from the Alexandria Septic Company know it can't dissolve everything. Every septic tank has a 'scum' layer floating at the top, partially treated or "grey" water in the middle, and heavy, thick sludge lining the bottom of the tank. All three layers must have a sort of internal "equilibrium" to them, which your Alexandria Septic Company can help control, in order to continue functioning the way a septic system should.

After remaining in the septic tank for one or two days, the "grey" wastewater inside the tank flows into the drain field. The drain field is a series of perforated pipes inside a trench filled with sand, gravel, tire chips, or other loose yet dense material. Your drain field will be regularly evaluated by the Alexandria Septic Company as its health and condition is very important for the good performance of your septic system.

As the wastewater flows out of the holes along the pipes, it enters the soil, which acts as a natural filter for any remaining waste products in the water. The toxins, bacteria, or viruses in the wastewater are broken down by the microorganisms and the oxygen in the soil. When functioning properly, a drain field allows a septic tank to contribute clean, potable water back into the surrounding area's ground water table. Your Alexandria Septic Company can ensure your drain field is working as it should.

As this water may have come from a toilet, sink, washing machine, or shower, there is a wide variety in the types of debris found in the wastewater. Most of these can be handled easily by the bacteria already inside the septic tank. In case of a clog or septic back-up, the Alexandria Septic Company is always available.
