Preventative Maintenance Stops Sludge Build-up On Floats and Transducers
Sludge build-up occurs naturally on any sort of wastewater or oil tank when it is being properly used with any sort of regularity. There’s nothing that anyone can do about that. It becomes a serious problem when it is periodically ignored, which many people are prone to do, considering they have much more to think about than the scum building up in their septic systems. However, while we are off living our lives, the sludge will continually build and grow, eventually leading to a possibly very expensive overflow or damage to transducers and floats. Proper maintenance is key to keeping this all-too-important system healthy and working well.
At Kline’s Services, we have our professionals continually monitoring the sludge build-up in many of our clients’ systems and the proper know-how to keep your system fully functioning just how you like it: efficiently and cleanly. With our monitoring, we successfully and significantly reduce the chance of expensive, damaging overflow to your tank, all the while keeping our eyes on other valuable parts of your system, such as your floats and transducers.
We clean your floats and transducers with our regular preventative maintenance by using a high-velocity, high-pressure water jet. This safely removes all of the scum and sludge build-up without the risk of damage to any of the expensive components of your vital sewer system. As the age-old adage goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Our preventative maintenance saves our customers money in the long run since they don’t have to pay for expensive, one-time maintenance. It also provides our customers peace of mind, knowing they’re in the hands of qualified professionals who know how to handle what can quickly become a sticky situation.
Liquid versus Cake Sludge – Refinement and Removal
Sludge: it’s something no one ever really wants to think about. For the most part, we’d all rather pretend that it doesn’t exist. That’s not practical though; sludge is a quality sign that a healthy sewer system is operating as it should. However, sludge does build up over time and it has to be dealt with. Otherwise, the sewer system is likely looking at an overload, leading to spillage from back-up in the pipes. That’s not something that the average person wants to or knows how to deal with.
Luckily, here at Kline’s Services, we know how to handle your sludge treatment and removal processes professionally and efficiently. We’re here to educate you a little on the different types of sludge so you know what you’re dealing with.
Liquid sludge is sludge in its most natural state. It is basically a viscous mixture of solid and liquid components that come from the natural rendering of human waste in a sewer or many other industrial refinement processes. Liquid sludge may or may not be of a uniform consistency, and likely has solid masses disbursed throughout a liquid suspension.
At Kline’s, we want to convert your liquid sludge into a cake sludge, reducing cost, and making disposal easier and less hazardous. We do this by adding a thickening or clarifying agent as well as a stirring mechanism. This reduces the moisture content to anywhere between 60 and 85 percent, depending on the method used. Once we have converted it to a cake sludge, the removal is efficient and carries minimal environmental impact. Kline’s Services treats waste water on site!
