Septic SystemsPolk City Septic Systems – Septic systems offer a solution for waste processing for properties that are too far away from sewage treatment plans. One important part of the septic system is the grease trap. After you drain water from the kitchen sink, the water typically contains oil that becomes a portion of the scum layer in the septic tank. If this scum layer gets thick because of too much grease, it can cause a blockage in the pipes. As a result, the waste can leak out of the tank or pipes, which can cause significant damage to the surrounding environment. Restaurants that have septic systems tend to have more problems with backup, since the wastewater contains oil from cooking.

The solution to this problem is to make sure that your septic system contains a functioning grease trap. The grease trap is between the sink and septic tank, providing a spot to catch any grease from the waste water before it goes into the tank. Restaurants or catering companies that produce more grease should consider replacing the grease trap with one that can handle higher volumes of grease. This is especially useful because you won’t have to schedule maintenance for cleaning it as often. When you do need grease trap cleaning, the best option is to call our septic system experts at Southeastern Septic LLC. We offer our septic services in Polk City, Florida, as well as many of the surrounding cities. We can also perform grease trap installation if your grease trap isn’t working properly or you don’t have one in your system.  Grease traps are most commonly made from cast iron, stainless steel, concrete, or plastic. When we come to install grease traps within septic systems, we will talk to you about usage to make sure we install the best grease trap for your home or business.

Another important aspect of septic systems is the drain field. After liquid and waste move through the pipes, they enter the tank for processing. Liquid moves out of the tank and into the drain field, which contains additional bacteria and chemicals that can further treat the water. It will then exit the system through perforated pipes and reenter the ground. Since untreated water can cause serious damage to the environment, a functional drain field is crucial in maintaining the safety of a septic system.
