Having a backed up septic system can make the water in your house run dirty and even make it smell horrible if it is not often maintained and taken care of. A septic tank is basically a household sewer system.

After a septic tank install, there are different things that happen within a septic system in order to filter out waste. There are microbes or bacteria, that eat up the sludge in the tank. There is a second compartment in the tank where microbes are again and through that any excess water gets filtered through a pipe in the soil. Some ways to avoid septic tank build up is not using heavy chemical cleaners to clean your bathroom toilet and sinks. A lot of these products can cause a clog and make the sludge come up and out of the running water.
