What I Do On my Visit to Clean and Pump your
Septic Tank Or Waste Treatment Plant in Pelican Point?
So, what do I do when I come to perform your septic tank cleaning and pumping or treatment
plant cleaning and pumping in Pelican Point?
First, I find out what kind of septic tank or waste treatment plant is, for this determines
how I will go about cleaning and pumping your septic tank or waste treatment plant. If the septic tank outline
is not visible at the surface, I employ a special probe that allows me to find the boundaries of the
septic tank or waste treatment plant for proper cleaning and pumping.
There are two basic designs I encounter in my septic tank cleaning and pumping and
watewater treatment plants in Pelican Point. One is the true "septic tank". This is a
round cylinder shaped having only a single chamber. The septic tank utilizes an anerobic (without oxygen)
process to breakdown the fecal wastes. This type of process is not very efficient but was the first
system utilized years ago in Pelican Point.
The old round septic tank in Pelican Point, not being very efficient,
is prone to solid waste buildup and must be cleaned and pumped more often than the waste water treatment plants I
will discuss shortly. However, it is the easiest tank for me to clean and pump because I only need to enter
the septic tank through one inspection window, which leads to the one chamber.
The second type of septic tank is not really a septic tank at all...it is the waste
treatment plant. This is the modern septic system to process waste water and fecal matter in
Pelican Point. The waste water treatment plant can either be rectangular or
cylindrical in shape and is made of a variety of materials which include steel, cement, plastic or
The waste water treatment plant, whether rectangular or cylindrical, is made up of two chamber,
instead of the one chambered "septic tank" I discussed earlier. A wall seperates the two chambers from top to
bottom with the exception of a small space at the very bottom where the contents of one chamber can pass liquid
wastes to the other. This is important as the waste water treatment plants in Pelican
Point work by having the inlet waste line drain from the house empty into the first septic tank chamber. At
the bottom of this first chamber there is an air pipe that spews out compressed air that bubbles up to the surface
of the tank and greatly aids the digestion of the liquid wastes and fecal matter.
This process is called "aerobic" digestion, which means that the breaking down of the waste is
through oxygenation or oxidation. This is a much more efficient process than the old single chambered septic tank!
Now as the waste matter is broken down it gives off methane gas and the remainder turns to more of liquid
state. This liquid passes down through the bottom space between the two chambers to the second chamber, where it
goes up and out the tail line to your drainage ditch. As you can see the two chambers of the waste water treatment
plant aid in segregating the solids of the inlet wastes from the house to the first chamber.
Being a two chambered tank, it is more difficult to clean and pump the waste water
treatment plant than it is to do septic tank cleaning and pumping. This is because you must enter through two
inspection doors to get to both chambers. This takes a lot of extra work, but as you can now understand, if you
just clean and pump out of one side, you will leave sludge in the other chamber.
