Exploring The World Of Handcrafted Furniture Construction

Hi there! The name is Nicky and I'm here to present the fascinating world of furniture construction to you. Modern furniture comes from a long line of handcrafted items that have recently fallen out of favor. I grew up in a quirky household where we created all of our own furniture by hand. I have fond memories of shaping wood on the lathe for table and couch legs before I could even ride a bike. Today I continue to create furniture using all of the skills I learned from my awesome parents. I would like to share the knowledge I've collected over the years with you to help expand this interesting hobby. My main goal is to see handmade furniture secure its place in the marketplace. I hope you learn all you need to know about techniques, tools and building materials to create signature pieces you'll love for lifetime.

Three Signs That Your Drainage Field May Need To Be Moved

Septic tanks are designed to hold waste that is flushed down the toilet or poured down the sink. The waste sits in the tank for a period of time so that bacteria can break it down. After being broken down, the waste goes into another chamber of the septic tank so that other chemical reactions can take place and then it is released into a drainage field.

A drainage field is made of a bed of rocks that filter the liquid into the soil where it is filtered even more. Over time, the area where the drainage field is located will have no more nutrients in it to filter the liquid or may become overly saturated. When this happens, the drainage field will need to be moved to another location. Use the following guide to learn some signs that it may be time to have your drainage field repositioned to another location.

Foul Odors

If you start to notice foul odors coming up from the ground near your septic tank, there is a chance that your drainage field no longer filters the liquid and is causing the septic tank to not be able to release the liquid it needs to release. When the liquid is not moving through the septic tank properly, you will also smell horrible smells coming up your pipes. You will not be able to get rid of the odors, no matter how much you clean.

Backflow in Pipes

If your toilet seems like it overflows every time you flush it, or water comes up one pipe when you drain water from a different sink or tub, there is a good chance that you have a backflow problem. When the liquid has nowhere to go, it will come back up the pipes because it cannot go into the full septic tank. Since the septic tank cannot drain the liquid out appropriately, it will not be able to accept more waste.

Soggy Land

If the land around or over your septic tank seems to be soggy a majority of the time, it may be time to move your drainage field or your tank may simply need to be pumped. Land that is squishy and has brilliantly green grass growing on it may have a drainage problem. The grass thrives because the waste serves as a natural fertilizer.

Have a septic tank service company, like Rhode Island Septic Service, come to your home to inspect the tank right away. They will be able to tell you if there is a problem with the tank itself, such as needing to be drained or have bacteria added to it, or if the drainage field needs to be moved to properly filter the liquid from the tank. The inspections take a very short period of time and will give you all of the information you need to make an informed decision about what to do about the situation.
