Why is it important to have regular septic tank pumping in Miami?
The purpose of the tank is to separate solid sewage from the wastewater that enters it. The solid waste falls to
the bottom of the tank as sludge, and the light waste made of oil and grease remains at the top as a scum layer.
The water in the middle is mostly free of solids. However, it contains nitrogen and phosphorous chemicals that
can be used as a fertilizer. This fertilizer is drained through the pipes at the center of the septic tank into
the ground. The solid waste and scum don’t leave the tank since they must be kept out of the ground to avoid
unpleasant smells and harmful bacteria contamination. Some of the sludge decays over time due to the bacteria,
but not all of it. Eventually, you will be in need of a septic tank pumping Miami to remove the remaining sludge
from the tank and dispose of it.
