Get rid of the problems with your septic tank

Problems with your septic tank? Call Αποφράξεις Αντωνίου. Have you noticed that it fills up in a short time or unpleasant odors appear? If you have identified any of these unpleasant signs then you need to act immediately to avoid the need for more serious repairs to your septic tank, whether it is an Absorbent septic tank or a Waterproof septic tank.

What is an absorbent pit?

The absorption sink is an underground septic tank where solid and liquid wastewater or waste is collected. The basic function of a septic tank is to collect waste water, which becomes water and is absorbed by the soil.

What is a waterproof pit?

The watertight septic tank is the sewage storage in small or larger facilities where there is no sewerage supply from the competent Municipality. The empty septic tanks are emptied with special evacuation trucks when their volume is reduced by the sediments caused at the bottom and the walls of the septic tank.

What is the cause of septic tank problems?

Over time, many pits lose their absorbency due to the sediments that form on the walls and bottom. This results in the creation of a watertight sewer which causes problems in the environment, in our quality of life and in our health. Although many of the problems are not visible to the human eye, there are signs that we must act immediately.

The main reasons are:

  • The use of chlorinated detergents
  • The use of caustic liquids which destroy bacteria due to their high toxicity.
  • The lack of maintenance of the septic tank

How to unclog the sewer yourself from blockages

If the drain of your bathroom or kitchen is clogged and the sewage does not leave easily but gradually and slowly you can easily get rid of this problem by applying the technique for blockages that we will analyze below. It is good to avoid the use of chemical cleaners that with their repeated use burden the environment dramatically but at the same time can corrode the plastic parts of the sewer pipes thus causing more damage, which will surely then you

have to call a technician and obviously you will be charged a considerable amount of money to repair the flood problem that has been created.

The steps you need to follow are:

  • Wearing plastic gloves we remove all possible residues that may block the entry of water into the sewer.
  • Pour half a cup of baking soda into the mouth of the clogged tube.
  • Immediately after, pour half a bottle of vinegar on top of the soda powder.
  • Let the mixture we created work for about half an hour.
  • After the half hour we mentioned, add a pot of hot water.
  • In case the obstruction persists, repeat the previous procedure until the problem is completely solved.

After dismantling it is good at regular intervals of 20 – 30 days, to throw 1-2 pots of hot water to avoid its recurrence in the future and of course to avoid the bad habit of pressing anything in the drains (papers, food scraps, etc.)

If the problem is not solved with the above method, it means that some objects over time have accumulated in a lower part of the sewer and block the flow of sewage, which means that you either have to solve the sewer from below part by making a more painstaking effort or call an obstruction technician Αποφράξεις – Αντωνίου who with a special water pressure machine can relieve you of the hassle, no matter how big the problem.
