Why do Septic systems tend to plug on holidays?

Unless TTRXFSS has been introduced into the tank there is going to be sludge in the bottom and a scum layer on top. Under normal usage the scum is blocked from entering the leach field and only water from the middle layer slowly exits the tank as more water is put into the tank. If a toilet is flushed, 1.6 to 7 gallons of affluent enters the tank and 1.6 to 7 gallons exits the tank. If no water is entering the tank, no water is exiting the tank. Typically, holidays see high volume of water entering and exiting the tank from the extra laundry, dishes, showers, bathroom visits and the like. This extra water can stir up the sludge and or scum and plug the exit to the leach field or even the leach field itself. Once the tank or drain field is plugged the entire system is out. The first sign of a plug will be at the lowest point in the system, usually a lower level shower or tub. IF the lowest drain shows signs of any sewage it is starting to back up.
This can be prevented by using TankTechsRx for Septic Systems . Our formula uses patented living and growing bacteria that consume the sludge and scum from the tank and leach field. Because there is a no sludge, nothing can plug. The extra affluent placed in the tank during high demand times will trigger the growth of the bacteria…it likes to eat on holidays too…and keep working after the party to keep the tank and system ready for the next party.
