South Florida Septic Tank Services

Fort Lauderdale Septic CleaningYour Fort Lauderdale septic system, when compared to urban and suburban living areas, functions as a mini sewer system, and as a mini waste treatment plant. All household waste is disposed to the septic system.

The termination point of your septic system is the environment. What you put into your septic system and how you choose to maintain it are important. Your septic system is buried in the ground and consists of some piping, a watertight tank and a leaching field.

A Fort Lauderdale septic tank is a watertight box. When household waste enters this box, organic material floats to the surface where bacteria biologically convert it to liquid. We will call this the floating layer. Inorganic material and by-products of bacterial digestion do not float. They sink to the bottom of the tank and accumulate, creating a sludge layer. Water entering the tank occupies the space between the floating layer and the sludge layer. A large clear water layer is important in a healthy septic tank.

Trouble begins when material from either the floating layer or the sludge layer exits the septic tank to the leaching field. This will clog the field's piping system and bring harmful unprocessed waste in contact with ground soils and ground water.

Your Fort Lauderdale septic tank must be pumped regularly. For our customers this happens automatically and at different intervals. How often your septic tank must be pumped is determined by:

  • The physical size of your tank ( its volume )
  • The number of people it supports
  • The frequency of showers
  • Laundry, flushing, etc.
  • How much inorganic material is introduced
  • The design and condition of your leaching field
  • And the type of soil in the area of your leaching field
