Did you know that the bacteria in your septic system actually helps break down the waste for processing? It’s true! A sludge is formed from solid waste at the bottom of your septic tank, and bacteria helps to digest this waste and break it down. However, the bacteria can’t do this efficiently enough to remove all sludge from your septic tank. Because of this, septic tank pumping is a necessity for Northwest Indiana homes that use a septic system.
Septic tank pumping is necessary every three to five years because an excessive buildup of sludge can prevent liquid waste from flowing through the outlet pipe of the system. This will cause a backup in the septic system, which will cause backups in your home. If you are experiencing slowed draining or sewage backups into your Northwest Indiana home, it is time to call FreeFlow Environmental to arrange septic pumping.
