All restaurants, whether fast food or sit down venues, sometimes have septic tank problems that come from the kitchen. In some cases, septic services can remedy these issues which can save you both time and money.

When a septic system becomes clogged it is usually due to one of two things: heavy grease build-up in septic tanks or wet wipes being flushed down the toilet.  Both have septic tank problems, yet one can be fixed easily while the other requires septic services to handle.

While septic services are not required for septic systems that are simply full of grease buildup, it is important to keep up with septic tank seeping into the local waterways.  However, septic services are required if you are having septic problems related to wet wipes being flushed down the toilet.

The difference between the two septic tank issues is easy to see if you know what to look for.  If your septic system has a bad seepage of grease or if septic services are already required, you will want to look for the following septic tank signs.

If you notice septic tank seeping into your local waterways, it is an easy fix that can be completed by septic services. If this is the problem, there will be heavy seepage in and around septic tanks and septic lines. The seep fluid will be a thick black goop with an odor that is hard to miss.

On the other hand, septic tank problems related to wet wipes being flushed down the toilet cannot be fixed by septic services. Flushing non-degradable items like wet wipes can cause septic tank seepage that is more like a brown seep soup.  This septic seeping will start to clog septic systems and cause problems.

Unfortunately, these septic tank seep issues are becoming more common in restaurants everywhere because people assume that putting anything down the toilet is okay. But septic seeping is septic seeping, and it must be taken care of by septic services which can effectively remove wet wipes or fix seepage problems related to heavy grease buildup.

If you have septic seeping, the septic seepage is a good indicator that your septic system needs attention. If it is septic tank seeping related to wet wipes you can call Fuller-Wente, Inc. and they will be able to fix the issue by cutting a hole in the seepage area and removing septic seepage. If the septic seeping is due to septic tank seepage of grease, their septic services can fix the problem by pumping out septic tanks and cleaning them.
