Superior Septic Services is offering septic repair near Monroe. You might think that septic tanks are simple things – just a big holding tank buried in the ground. The truth is, they are complex and so are the regulations related to them.
There are excellent reasons for this. At one time, summer outbreaks of cholera were common. Cholera is caused by drinking or eating something that is contaminated with Vibrio cholerae, a bacterium that is commonly passed through fecal matter. Once associated with pig farming, the bacteria can be passed through feces from anyone who is infected. Contaminated water is one of the more common vectors. Concerns about seepage from septic tanks is one reason for the stringent rules about how near the water table such tanks can be situated. This concern is one reason for the mound-type septic tanks, which require a pump to operate correctly, and is also the reason for periodic inspections of all septic tanks. It goes without saying (but we are going to say it anyway) that septic repair is essential. A septic tank that is not operating correctly is a health problem in the making.
