Premier Plastics Inc. has 25 years' experience with engineering design and installation of below floor septic tank solutions. The main element design factor of poly septic tanks for below ground use is the resistance to compression buckling or pressure from the outside in. That is reverse to above ground tanks where in fact the pressure is from the within out. The main element design element is the tensile strength of the material. To avoid buckling, below earth tanks have a thicker wall and are typically spherical in condition with light ribbing, or non-spherical (loaf form) with heavy ribbing. The small chiseled triangular ribbing design of our SuperTanks contains the stresses in-line with the chiseled surfaces which bring about a profile that resists pressure evenly from the top, the sides, and the ends of the tank. No others tank design can lay claim this. Never grind up (macerate) your sewage before mailing to a septic tank unless absolutely necessary. Pumping cared for sewage (after septic tank) up to the leach field with lift station is definitely a choice, but do not macerate (pump) effluent before the septic reservoir. The septic fish tank operates by digesting solids and settling sludge to underneath and allowing grease to float to the most notable of the septic tank. Macerating the sewage before going into the septic tank will generate a septic tank without any large solids, simply a cloud of ground up sewage debris. Whenever you send these debris out to the leach field, you are bound to eventually clog the ground with bio-mat and then the leach field fails.

If you are going to sell or purchase a property and are uncertain if the septic reservoir system is compliant, you can apply for a System Compliance Survey. Upon receipt of an application and payment of the survey charge, Council's Environmental Health Officers will investigate and establish whether the system is compliant with current standards.

Odors Inside- If you detect odor in the home, make sure that all P” traps, or drains, have water in them. When a sink, bathtub, toilet, or even washer drain is not used for a long period of time, the in a trap can evaporate, allowing the septic gases to go into the house back through the dried snare. The P capture is designed specifically to hold water, forming a barrier for odor. Simply run normal water in the drain for a few minutes to remedy a dry, or unfilled, trap. You should also check the seal (gasket) around the base of your toilets. A destroyed seal makes it possible for odors in to the home. You can replace the gasket yourself, or contact a plumber for service. Odors may be to arrive from the roof structure vents, in which case you can buy and install charcoal filters.

In the photography above demonstrating a washer in the foreground and the primary house waste range in the basement left corner in the background, you might ask yourself if the washer is linked to another drywell. The washing machine in the photography is actually below the level at which the main drain leaves the house in the length. What simplifies finding the septic tank in the case of this photo is the fact there is merely one large diameter waste products drain leaving the home.

As described above, a septic system is a self-contained water-recycling system. Located underground in the lawn, a watertight fish tank receives and stores wastes from the house. Bacterias in the tank decompose the throw away, sludge settles in the tank, and effluent moves into the surface by using a drain system. The effluent eventually filters back off to groundwater a septic tank pump works
