Sewage water removal requires a lot of attention to start with, because it is a more complicated and detailed procedure. When you do a sewer back up and you are not skilled or knowledgeable enough to do it, this may affect the many aspects of the environment. Sewage is a solid waste that carries deadly viruses, bacteria, fungus, toxic chemicals, parasites, and other life threatening contaminants. In cases like these, we should call someone experienced and knowledgeable about sewage water removal.
When this problem occurs, immediate action should be done to solve this problem. The first thing to do is determine the cause of the blockage prior to attempting any water removal procedure. Different factors may have caused this blockage, for instance, a septic tank that has not been maintained properly. Perhaps a child flushed a hard object down the toilet, or maybe the septic tank was flooded because of the heavy rains.
When heavy rainfall or soaked soil takes place, this may cause the sewage to back up. Should this situation arise, just dig a trench in it. Perform water removal by pulling the rain water away from the contaminated water. In this way, some of the saturation is eased and minimizing the volume of sewage you have to contend with. In most cases, the tank is dug up and the raw sewage pumped into it will be disposed in other designated sites.
Here is another scenario of a water removal problem. Heavy rainfall is one of the reasons why sewage backs up, in which case the tank can be pumped through the clean out drain. This is located at the tank screw cap portion, where a plumber has direct access to the septic tank. This solution however, only temporarily addresses the problem. To prevent future problems with rainfall or soggy soil, why not make a drainage trench near the tank to reduce the risk of flooding your septic tank. Then there will be no need for water removal or danger of contamination.
After solving the back up sewage problem, always disinfect the areas previously contaminated by raw sewage. Ask the opinion of a professional on what product will best restore your yard to be a safe place to inhabit.
One of the reasons for sewage back up is because of a hard object that occasionally gets flushed in the toilet whether intentionally or unintentionally. Usually, the toilet must be removed in order to reach the object that has caused the clogs, causing the sewage to back up. Prior to removing the toilet, ensure that the water is turned off at the shut off valve going to the toilet. Flush out any water that may be left in the reserve tank. Upon doing this, there may still be some water that will flow to the floor. Put an absorbent material around the toilet to catch this littler water left. The water in this case may be contaminated if the sewage backed up into the toilet. Before doing all these procedures however, evaluate first if these are the best moves to do at this point.
