How Does Your Sewer and Septic System Work?

Drainage systems make wastewater disappear whenever toilets are flushed or hands are washed in buildings and residential properties. But, for all the functions that drainage helps make possible—dishes, laundry, showers—few people stop and think about the mechanisms that go into the process.

Sewers and septic systems both filter out black water (the water you flush) and grey water, which comes out of sink and shower drains. In terms of sanitation, both systems will filter bacteria and pathogens from water before it flows back out into the environment. Basically, the two systems offer reliable drainage of wastewater from houses and buildings with minimal problems the majority of the time.

Consequently, sewer and septic pipes can sometimes get clogged with grease, hair, and hard elements, all of which can cause sewage to plug up sinks, toilets, and bathtubs. These problems usually come down to maintenance.  When not adequately maintained, the outflow can be detrimental to lake water purity and hazardous to the surrounding environment.

How to Take Care of your Sewer and Septic Pipes?

Of course, maintenance and pumping of the tank itself is merely half of what it takes to responsibly run a drainage system; a lot of it also comes down to how you treat the pipes that lead to the tank.

In order to prevent the pipes from clogging, don’t allow grease, hair, or hard particles to slip down your sink or shower drains.

Don’t plant trees or other heavily rooted plants either on or near the area of soil in which the system lies, because roots and bulbs can grow stronger as time passes and ultimately damage drainage pipes.

Don’t leave the future of your home in the hands of an unlicensed or uninsured plumber.
