Septic tanks come in two types: gravity feed, the more traditional type and the newer above ground tanks that require pumps. As you might guess from regulations that say that gravity feed tanks need to be inspected every three years and that the above ground type needs a yearly inspection, the above ground septic tanks have more things that can go wrong with them. They are dependent on pumps to move things from your home into the tank, so that is logical. Septic repair often involves pumping the tank out. It makes it easier to see what is going on, and it removes the buildup of solid matter, including materials that have gotten in there that won’t biodegrade. Biodegrading (a fancy word for rotting or decaying) is an essential part of the health of your septic tank. Bacteria break down the solid wastes from your home, minimizing buildup. But if too many non-degradable items, such as disposable wipes, diaper liners, and even kitty litter get in there, they build up and eventually clog the system. Other repairs might include broken baffles, loose risers or riser caps, or faulty pumps.
