How does the septic system work?

A septic system is designed to treat wastewater from a home or building that is not connected to a public sewer system. It is usually made of concrete or fiberglass and buried underground on the private property. 
Waste and wastewater from the building flow through the drain system into the septic tank and is held in the tank as solids to settle to the bottom and oils and grease to float to the top. The middle layer of wastewater, or liquid effluent, flows out of the tank toward a drain field, where it percolates through perforated pipes and is absorbed into the surrounding soil.
Granted, this is the general principle in a traditional septic system. There are many varieties, and the septic professionals at Rooter Man can inspect and identify your particular system.


What is septic pumping?

The septic system is reliable, but it can’t do everything on its own. The tank, for instance, can only hold so much waste and wastewater until it must be emptied out. Septic tank pumping involves bringing in a specialized truck equipped with a vacuum hose to remove a big bulk of the waste in the septic tank.

What is septic cleaning?

Septic cleaning, on the other hand, is a more thorough process that involves removing both the solid waste and the buildup of grease, scum, and other debris that can accumulate in the tank over time. This process typically involves using a high-pressure water jet to clean the inside of the tank and remove any remaining residue.
