What Causes Septic Tanks to Malfunction?
- Physical damage
Physical damage can cause a septic system to malfunction. Physical damage can be caused when a septic solution is built in the wrong place. For example, building a driveway or paving over a septic system can cause significant issues in the long run. The pipe and tank may be crushed due to accidental or repeated abuse. Another cause of physical damage can be poor curbing and concrete work from the septic system services you used.
- Poor Design and Installation
Some septic tank systems may fail due to incorrect design or poor maintenance. Soil-based systems with drainage areas may be installed in areas with insufficient soil or high groundwater levels. This can cause contamination of nearby water sources or total septic system failure.
- Flushing foreign objects or chemical
It is essential to watch what is flushed into the drain. This is because any foreign matter that enters the septic tank must be pumped out. Foreign matter poured into the drain cannot be decomposed naturally, which may cause blockage and even complete system damage.
To avoid this situation, do not pour oils, grease, fats, toxic chemicals, and other foreign objects down the drain. Throw them in the trash can.
