Septic Service

Septic Service  | St Cloud | Kissimmee | Orlando Septic ServiceIf your Central Florida home or business uses a septic tank, having a decent understanding of the function of the system is paramount in keeping it in good working order. Many people are not very aware of the process required to make it run correctly and they wait until the last moment to service their septic system and sudenly they end up with toilets that start backing up onto the floor.

The problem we face today is that we are so busy that we often have no time for regular home maintenance, or we simply forget to do it. There are at least two important factors that keep a Central Florida septic system running correctly. First it's important that the bacterial action in the tank be sufficient to break solid matter down on a daily basis. Secondly, since there will gradually be a build-up of sludge in the bottom of the tank it is important not to let this build up to the point that the system fails. When a tank becomes overly filled with sludge or the bacterial action is no longer able to keep up with the requirement to break down solid matter, the sludge and solid matter will start draining into the drainage system of the tank.

SepticThis can potentially ruin your drain field - which can be expensive. It will at least plug the pipes leading to the drain field and your drains will start to back up into the house when you flush the toilet, or use your shower or bathtub. There is no where for the waste water to go so it backs up into the toilet or shower and bath drains. Calling Bud's Septic is the solution you're looking for. We suggest you do this as a preventative measure, but if you find yourself in an emergency situation we're there for you!  Septic cleaning will give your tank a rest. Waste water and solid matter will gradually fill the tank again, and the bacterial action will have a fresh start and will functin properly. Unless your drain field has been damaged, or the drain pipes leading to the drainage field have been plugged, your tank should operate correctly once again.

How often you should pump your tank will depend on the size of the tank itself and your level of usage. If you have a large family with many children you will need to pump the tank more often. Keeping the tank in good running condition requires that you not misuse your system. Anything that contains plastic, vinyl or rubber should never be flushed into the toilet. It may seem harmless to flush away such things as condoms, sanitary napkins, paper towels and disposable diapers but these things cannot be properly handled by your septic system.
