What is a septic system

April 5, 2012  

Homeowners in Everett and all of Snohomish County, Washington are likely to treat home wastewater on-site through the use of a septic tank system. A septic systems receives wastewater from the home through drains and toilets. In the storage tank, natural processes separate the waste water into sludge or sediment, scum and water. The tank stores the scum and sludge and discharges the waste water into a “drain field.”

In Washington State it is required that inspections of septic systems be performed by qualified personnel every one to three years depending on system type and county.

Unfortunately, septic systems are underground and that old adage “out of sight out of mind” is often true – homeowners may forget their state mandated inspection or worse forget to have their system pumped. Some owners feel that by using a septic tank additive that they add through drains or the toilet they can increase the time between pumping. They are wrong! There is no scientific proof that additives serve any purpose other than making money for their manufacturers. If fact, according to the Washington State, using additives may lead to premature system failure.
