Prepping the home septic tank for hoilday crowds.
When planning a super event at your home that you know will cause an excessive demand on your septic system there are a few things you can do early to set your mind at ease. Of course, ALWAYS keep TankTechsRx for Septic Systems in your septic system. This alone can help prevent any stinky messy party stopping backup.
There are a few simple things that can be done a month before the event so you can get it off your mind and enjoy the party in confidence.
First, check the sludge level of the septic tank yourself as described in the FAQ’s (41) How to inspect a septic tank and what to look for. (61) Judging sludge quality and (62) how to make a tool to measure sludge and scum levels in a septic tank. Those who regularly use TankTechsRx for Septic Systems will find a very light sludge level if there is any at all. (if not please contact us, something else is going on and we want to help prevent a problem) If you call in a professional INSIST they stick the tank with a sludge Judge and show you the sludge level. Unfortunately, many will just say it needs to be pumped and not physically check it.
If you find light to moderate sludge, enjoy the party. If the sludge level is above the test sock and there is a heavy scum level, we would suggest you pump the tank and eliminate the possibility of a party stopper. Of course you should add TankTechsRx for Septic Systems after the pump out to help prevent future problems.
If for some reason you cannot inspect the holding tank but you think there could be a problem, add TankTechsRx for Septic Systems and start fixing the problem. For added safety rent a porta potty. They are a lot cheaper than a ruined party and the massive expense of it. YOUR GUESTS WILL UNDERSTAND. They use them at ball fields and special events all the time. You could make it a guys and children only thing too. It would help.
