Septic Inspection in Lake Stevens

The purpose of a septic system is more than to get the waste products out of your home. It is intended to return the water used in your household to the greater ecological system – without contaminants. Not so very long ago – less than 150 years – many homes had that ordinary (and smelly) little house located out at the edge of the lawn. The problem with most outhouses is that they leach contaminants into the soil around them, and cleaning them was an unlovely chore. The next step up from an outhouse, is a flush toilet that empties into a cesspit or septic lagoon. This allowed the home owner to pipe the water away from the house; but those open pits attracted all kinds of pests. John Louis Mouras, a Frenchman, is credited with developing the precursor of the modern septic tank. It was a simple tank into which the water flowed and solids were captured before flowing into a regular cesspit.
