Many of us don’t utilize a septic system here in Anaheim, there are certain areas of Orange County where it is more common. A septic system is one of the most efficient and environmentally friendly ways to dispose of sewer waste. It is convenient and can save you money in the long run. At California Repipe Specialist, we are your local whole-home repipe specialist and while a home repipe can make your septic system perform better than it has in years, particularly if your pipes are aging.

How A Septic System Works

While it may seem simple enough, your septic system is actually a complicated system of bacterial processes and separation. If you have a septic system, the last thing you want to do is flush it and forget it because you will end up damaging the system. A septic system is complicated but intuitive, it only takes a little mindfulness in order to keep it running at its best.

While there are many different types of septic systems, like anaerobic, sand filter, and drip, but the most common is the conventional septic system. The conventional system consists of sewer plumbing, leading into a tank. Once in the tank, waste breaks separate into different layers: the solids sink to the bottom, the liquid rests in the middle, and scum floats to the top. The fluid flows from the tank into another separator and eventually out into what is known as drain field, or leach field. As the sludge at the bottom sits in the water, a bacterial process begins decomposing the sludge and turning it into nutrients that exit the tank with the water. The drain field disperses the wastewater into aggregate and into the earth. As you can see it is an incredibly efficient form of sewage treatment.

Your Sewer Pipes Matter

One of the biggest misconceptions is that your sewer lines do not matter when it comes to your septic system. That could not be further from the truth. Your sewer lines can help your septic system perform at its best. Clean sewer lines are one of the easiest ways to ensure that your septic system will continue to work properly. If you are noticing any signals like slow running drains, a smell coming from your drain, or worse yet your drain is backing up, it may be time for a sewer line repipe. Much like our whole home repipes, a sewer repipe encompasses all of the sewer lines in your home, making them efficient and safe.
