Biological natural bacterial action processes take time to break down septic waste into three components; gases, water and solids. Meanwhile many septic system are expected to handle much more than just human waste. In most hoseholds they have to deal with kitchen wastes, large ammounts of water from family baths and showers and large ammounts of water from dishwashers and washing machines and that includes soaps and detergents, plasticizers and plastics bothe non biodegradable ‘flushable’ products and even things like solvents, paint thinners or even gasoline at times.
Phosphates from detergents act as fertilizer enabling algae growth that can eventually block the perforations in the distribution pipes. Chemical products like solvents and paint thinners are toxic and by dumping them into a septic system, they get distributed into the surrounding soil, polluting it and making environmentally unfit for vegetation growth.
Septic Systems also have to deal with excess water. This means the solid wastes don’t get a chance to break down before the water level in the tank raises so high that solid matter passes out of the tank into distribution tubes that are only built to handle liquids, effectively blocking the tubes. Non biodegradable products fill up the tank space and will never go away naturally. Again this raises the liquid levels in the tank higher and forces floating solids into the distribution system.
As a result, it’s not difficult to figure out what causes most common septic system problems;  we expect the septic system process things they aren’t designed to handle.
How to eliminate common septic system problems
  • Minimize the amount of water going into your septic system by spreading out clothes washing over a number of days, rather than doing all the family laundry on one day.
  • Shorten the length of showers and use ‘low flow’ showerheads to help keep excess water out of the system. Low flow or dual flush toilets will also minimize water going into the system.
  • Use liquid or gel soap in dishwashers and washing machines – gel soaps don’t contain phosphates like powdered soaps.
  • Keep kitchen wastes out the system. This means no oil or grease down the kitchen drain plus, a garburetor shouldn’t be connected to the system (kitchen wastes break down differently than human waste).
  • Keep all non-biodegradable products out of the system. This includes flushable items like tampons, diapers, paper towels even cigarette butts.
  • Never use your septic system as way to get rid of toxic materials like solvents and paint thinners. They won’t be eliminated, they will simply be distributed into the soil. Commercial products that claim to clear septic systems often contain toxic or hazardous chemicals like lye that are bad for the environment.
  • Finally, have your system pumped out on a regular basis (Excavating NJ Inc., Toll-Free (800) 741-3922, suggests every two to four years) to ensure the system has enough capacity to work efficiently.
