Central Florida’s strong afternoon thunderstorms will be here before you know it, is your septic system ready? Whether you live in Casselberry, Winter Park, Lake Mary, Oviedo, Ocoee, Kissimmee, or anywhere in the Orlando Area, your septic system if a big investment.
The torrential downpours can really take a toll on your septic system. All of our rain can easily flood the ground, this makes the soil absorption (the drain field) area saturated.
While water is still going into the septic system through flushing the toilet, taking showers, baths, and sinks, the water coming out has nowhere to go because the drain field is saturated. When this happens, the waste water can travel back into the home, through the same toilets, bathtubs, and sinks. It also puts the ground water at risk for contamination.
What you can do to protect your investment?
Make sure your septic system is in tip top shape before our torrential downpours begin. All that water only intensifies any problems.
Make sure the gutters and water runoff is directed away from the drain field and surrounding soil.
Don’t dive vehicles or heavy equipment over the drain field. Compacting the soil reduces the soil’s ability to absorb water.
During times of heavy rain, conserve water to minimize stress on the septic system.
If you notice your toilets making gurgling sounds, slow drains, or foul odors, contact Orlando Septic Service.
