Clogged toilets

According to this drain cleaning professional, clogged toilets can be annoying. They overflow. They smell bad. They get waste all over the floor. And worse, yet: They can be a symptom of a much more dire situation than you might initially suspect: septic system damage. Clogged toilets, while a bothersome inconvenience, don’t actually present a health hazard to residents. That’s an important distinction. But other kinds of septic system problems are more insidious. They can (and have) led to sewage backup into homes and to problems for adjacent neighbors. This is when it is important to call in a professional plumbing company in Spartanburg, SC or similar services and visit their website.

A clogged toilet can also alert you that you have a septic problem, but that doesn’t mean you need to hunker down and wait out the storm.

Prompt septic system repair is extremely important: Not only will it prevent backups into nearby homes, but it can also stave off more expensive and invasive repairs down the road. Protect Your Home’s Plumbing Systems Septic systems, as you may already know, have several important components. Each plays a specific role in ensuring the plumbing system functions properly. Your septic system’s tanks (also known as septic tanks) are large receptacles used to hold water that accumulates from wastewater. These tanks rely on gravity to help force waste into the drain field and away from your home. As such, the tanks should sit directly below your home’s lowest point — so that gravity can work properly. Your septic tank’s drain field (also known as the drain field) is another critical system component. The drain field consists of a series of perforated, perforated pipes that are designed to take wastewater from the septic tank and allow it to slowly leach back into the surrounding soil. A septic system’s drain field and septic tank As water makes its way through the drain field, it slowly seeps into the soil and is eventually absorbed into the soil. Solid waste like (you guessed it) human waste, food scraps, and diapers will (hopefully) end up in the septic tank (which will then overflow).
