Quality Septic Repairs in Purcellville, VA
Unfortunately, negligence on part of the homeowner is one of the main causes of septic system breakdowns. Educating yourself about your system can help keep your system in working order for many years. Breakdowns often are a result of:
- Failure to keep filters properly cleaned
- Planting landscaping near, on or around system components, and
- Driving vehicles or machinery over system components
Breakdowns to a septic system can happen as a result of old age, lack of proper maintenance, negligence and abuse. Repairs can be costly. The average septic system can last up to 30-50 years or more. Your system’s lifespan depends greatly on how well you maintain it.
The most common cause of septic system breakdown is a failure to keep the filter properly cleaned. If the filter is not cleaned on a regular basis, sewage in the septic tank may backup the sewer line into the house or overflow out of the septic tank onto the ground. There are many different types of filters and sometimes they are not always located in the septic tank.
Tree roots not only damage drain field lines but can also crack septic tanks. It’s important to know where every component of your septic system is located on your property. Allowing vehicles to drive over or park on your drain field is also a common cause of damage.
