Your Apex home or commercial property wastewater system will not work properly is your septic tank is full or failing. The septic system is designed to move household waste, both solid and liquid, via pipes hidden underground. Typically, gravity is used to separate sewage and directing the solid waste to the septic tank and the liquid waste to a drain field. Some systems use pumps due to property requirements and design.
Septic tanks are designed specifically to store wastewater, but when they become full, they must be pumped. Make sure before your septic tank reaches capacity, to schedule a septic pumping visit. It is recommended and required to have regularly scheduled pumping (every 2 to 3 years). If its scheduled, you will not have to commit it to memory. Brantley Septic will contact you in advance to let you know we are coming out.
The common cause, of wastewater back-up, slow or blocked indoor drainage, foul odors, and the pooling of unsanitary wastewater around your septic tank or in the drain field, is neglect and different forms of damage.
