At Superior Septic Services, we know that not everyone understands the right way to manage a septic tank. In fact, few people truly even value the need for regular septic pumping in Woodinville.
For example, once there was a young couple who had a marshy spot on their property. They tried everything to deal with it. They planted water loving plants to try to soak up the bog, including a weeping willow tree. One day, after a big gathering of family and friends, the guest room toilet overflowed, and all of the other drains in the house became very sluggish.
Imagine their chagrin when they learned that their problem and the cause of their little marsh was an overflowing tank that was badly in need of septic pumping!
Furthermore, this youthful pair had done just about everything they possibly could have done to impair the healthy working of their septic tank. According to an article from Pipeline, an online newsletter published by the Environmental services center, the only thing that should be planted over a septic tank’s leach field is grass.
Tree roots can clog lines, and reduce proper drainage. Septic tanks depend on a healthy bacteria colony for efficient waste disposal. The young wife was a fine arts painter, and frequently poured her latex paint cleaning water down the drain. They had a garbage disposal – which meant that food particles and grease went into the septic tank. When they began having problems with the drains, they used harsh chemical drain cleaners – which are deadly to the beneficial bacterial in a septic tank. Septic pumping was their only possible solution.
