Septic Inspections in Maine

Septic Preservation Services has septic inspections scheduled today in Peak’s Island, Portland, Harpswell, Orr’s Island, Freeport, Pownal and Topsham Maine.

Having an inspection on your septic system keeps you informed of the status of your septic system. A septic system will not operate indefinitely and will eventually need replacement and will always require maintenance so it is advisable to know the condition of your septic system. In this instance ignorance is not bliss and could lead to some unpleasant surprises so having a professional inspect your system could help prevent expensive repairs in the future if you can catch problems before they occur.

If you would be interested in a septic inspection or if you have any septic questions please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

Garbage Disposals and Your Septic System

garbage disposals

 

Garbage Disposals are used in many households, but are they safe to use with your septic system.  Good Question!

While many companies that sell garbage disposals will tell you they are fine to use with a septic system, the truth is they really aren’t.

You really shouldn’t be using a garbage disposal with your septic system.  The way that the septic system is set up involves a large tank filled with water and the waste from your home.  The solid waste settles to the bottom where bacteria go to work breaking it down.  Then, there is the water waste layer that has the excess liquid going out to the drain field.  Finally, at the top, there is a layer of scum that has built up.

In order to keep your septic system running smoothly, there are many items that should not be flushed or sent down the drains.  This includes, diapers, wipes, bleach, harsh chemicals and sanitary products to name a few.    The same is true with your garbage disposal.  All the fats, grease, and other waste from the disposal are being added to the septic tank which can can cause problems and clogs and prevent it from working correctly.

Basically, you are overloading the waste that is being put into your septic tank and the naturally occurring bacteria will not be able to keep up with breaking it down.  If you use a garbage disposal, you should have your tank pumped every year, rather than the normal 3-5 year range.  It can wreak havoc with your septic system.

A better idea? Compost.  Composting your kitchen waste is much better for your system and environmentally friendly.  You can buy a cheap plastic composter or even make your own.  Depending on the size, you can add all your kitchen waste as well as leaves and grass and have a great fertilizer ready for your garden or landscaping.

It’s a win win situation for your yard as well as your septic system.

Maine Septic Preservation Services has septic repairs scheduled today in Westport Island, Boothbay, Bath, Brunswick, Orr’s Island, Phippsburg, and Harpswell, Maine.  

Of course repairing your septic system is always important but it seems especially urgent when a property is located on pristine coastline or in unspoiled countryside which is often the case for our customers in Maine.  Inadequately treated wastewater can transfer diseases such as dysentery, hepatitis, and typhoid fever to animals and humans. However, also a serious concern with a failing septic system, is that it can also leak excessive nutrients and bacteria to rivers, lakes, and the ocean, destroying plant and animal habitat, closing beaches, and hurting the fishing industry.
