Can Drain Blasters Completely Clean My Septic Tank?

A lot of work has to go into completely cleaning a septic tank. Not only does the tank itself have to be completely emptied but the drainage system around the septic tank must also be cleared and cleaned. This process is so important so that the risk of blockages and damage, in both the tank and the surrounding pipelines, is completely minimised. Luckily, our septic tank cleaning service has you completely covered. Our fully qualified drainage team can leave you safe in the knowledge that every aspect of your tank is cleaned and operating to its maximum potential. All debris and rubbish are also removed from your septic tank, ensuring that anything that can or could cause a problem with your drainage system is gone. Our complete service assists in reducing and removing the build-up of greases and fats that are proven to be one of the most common causes of septic tank drain blockages in Cape Town.

Septic Tank Cleaning and Maintenance to Avoid Future Problems

To minimise the risk of future problems, it’s highly recommended regularly have your septic tank cleaned and surveyed, which will help to dramatically decrease the risk of blockages and the need for future repairs. All maintenance checks and surveys are carried out by our fully qualified and experienced team that can provide you with easy-to-understand yet comprehensive results. We can also provide you with expert advice and opinions on the best action to take in your individual circumstance. What our septic tank cleaning services include:

Septic System Cleaning and Honey Sucker Services

Both services require the use of a vacuum truck. Septic tank pumping is a quicker service that removes a tank’s liquid, leaving the sludge behind. Septic cleaning is when you vacuum both the liquids and solids from a septic tank, taking the time to ensure the tank is empty. A septic tank works by separating sludge and scum from clear wastewater. Bacteria in the tank help break down solid wastes and toilet paper into sludge that sinks to the tank’s bottom. Fats, grease, and other oils, or scum, float to the surface. What is left in between is clear wastewater that drains into dispersal fields or sewage treatment. A commercial property that only has septic tank pumping performed can quickly build up a sizable amount of sludge in their septic tank. The longer between septic tank cleanings, the more difficult it becomes to remove the sludge. This build-up can cause clogs, backups, or even more hazardous situations.

Actions To Avoid Blockage of Septic System

Here are some ways people abuse their commercial septic system, causing the need for services sooner rather than later. Flushing Items Not Meant for Septic Systems Items not intended for septic tanks include diapers, sanitary pads, tampons, cigarette butts, and coffee grounds. These items cannot be broken down in a septic tank and can clog pipes. Overloading a Garbage Disposal Overuse of a garbage disposal may send too much solid waste that bacteria will struggle to break down efficiently enough. Synthetic Fibres From Washing Machines The bacteria cannot break down synthetic fibres that drain from your washing machines. You can reduce this by ensuring your washer’s filters and drain pipes are clean. Dumping Excess Amounts of Cleaning Agents Down the Drain These chemicals can kill the live bacteria in your septic tank that break down solid wastes. Planting Trees or Shrubs Too Close To Your Septic System Roots from trees and shrubs can grow into your septic tank, causing clogs and backups.
