Grease Traps: Everything You Need to Know

Septic Services LakelandPosted bySeptic Services LakelandApril 21st, 2020

Grease Traps: Everything You Need to KnowGrease traps are pretty much what they sound like. They trap grease, fats and oils from entering the wastewater disposal system. This is an important feature of many commercial and residential kitchens to help prevent clogs and drainage issues. Grease can be deceiving as it is a liquid when at room temperature but becomes thick and hard when cooled, which causes issues if dumped down a drain.

Grease traps are designed to trap grease and heavier food items inside a box with chambers. The harmful grease and food particles get stuck in the box and only water is allowed to flow into the wastewater drain. A grease trap is usually a box on the outside of the building that is attached to the drain line.

Without a grease trap, your sewer lines can clog and get backed up causing costly damages. In many areas with city sewer systems it is required to have a grease trap in a commercial kitchen.

Grease traps will only function properly with frequent cleaning to remove all of the trapped grease, fats, oils and food. Grease traps in commercial kitchens need to be cleaned out every one to three months. Residential kitchen grease traps can be cleaned out two to three times a year. It is important to hire a professional grease trap cleaner to get the entire box cleaned out, including all of the most difficult areas of the trap.

Here at Southeastern Septic LLC, we are very experienced in residential and commercial grease trap installation, cleaning and repair. Give us a call to set up your cleaning or installation today.

How to Know When You Need Septic Tank Pumping

Septic Services LakelandPosted bySeptic Services LakelandApril 21st, 2020

How to Know When You Need Septic Tank Pumping
Having your septic tank pumped periodically is important for the overall health of your septic system. Septic tank pumping ensures that solid waste deposits on the bottom and top of your septic take get removed and helps to extend the life of your septic tank. But, how do you know when it is time to have your septic tank pumped? Below we will discuss several signs that it is time to have your septic tank pumped.

 

• Sluggish – If you notice that your toilets, tubs, and sinks are slower to drain it is most likely time for septic tank pumping.

• Odor – When your septic tank fills up there is no place for gases to go, so they seep into your home through your toilets and drains. There can also be a smell around your drain field and septic tank area.

• Time – Most septic tanks need to be pumped every one to three years. We recommend speaking to a septic professional to get on a routine schedule.

• Standing water – A sure sign that you need your septic tank pumped is standing water near the septic tank and drain field. If you see this occurring, then you need to call a septic company immediately.

• Sewage backup – The most unpleasant sign that you need your septic tank pumped is sewage backing up into your home.

All homeowners need to have their septic tanks pumped. If you aren’t on a routine schedule, then you might notice one of these signs above. Don’t wait until it is too late. Give Southeastern Septic LLC a call today to schedule your septic tank pumping.

What You Can Expect During Septic Tank Cleaning

Septic Services LakelandPosted bySeptic Services LakelandApril 21st, 2020

What You Can Expect During Septic Tank Cleaning
Septic tank cleaning is a vital and beneficial procedure for your septic tank. Most don’t know what occurs during the cleaning process. Below we will discuss this process to hopefully answer any questions you may have.

Septic tanks have two access points. Both will need to be exposed during the cleaning process.

• The septic tank access lids will be opened. Sometimes tank lids can break, but they are easily replaced.

• The tank will then be pumped to remove all of the fluids and solids.

• The septic tank will be washed out with water to remove as much as the solids as possible.

• The tank will be visually looked over to make sure there aren’t any corrosion or roots. The septic tank baffles and dividing wall will also be inspected.

• The lids will be closed and recovered. Tank access points should be six to twelve inches deep. If your tank is buried deeper than that then a riser can be installed to make access easier the next time your septic tank is cleaned.

It is important to keep your septic tank in good repair with routine maintenance. Some signs that you may need to have your septic tank cleaned are your toilets and drains are running slower than normal. You may also notice an unusual odor near toilets and drains. All of these signs can mean that there is a clog in your septic system that needs to be cleaned out.
