Septic Service in Snohomish

Winter does bring extra challenges to your home septic system. Cold weather can slow down the bacteria in your septic tank, causing it to digest the solids more slowly. It can also make your leech field less permeable. However, a well-designed system will scarcely notice the weather going on above it. The surrounding earth acts as insulation, and water from your home helps add warmth. These things will keep your septic tank processing your household waste properly. Signs that your system might need service include the toilet being slow to flush, sluggish drains and standing water or ice on the leech field area. There can be a lot of causes for these indicators. Someone might have driven across the leech field, causing the carrier pipes to break, you could have an extra thick mat of scum on top of the digestion tank, or it might simply have been too long since the last time the system was pumped out. Tree roots, or the age of your system could also be responsible for its misbehavior.
