Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Dirty water runs back into washer, moving drum, you hear it.

Discharge hose runs approx. 6 ft from bottom to top where in enters septic system. I don't think I should hear the water swishing when I move the drum after the wash cycle. What can I do to prevent water in hose from running back into washer?

What kind of washer. Most washers will have a balance ring in them. This balance ring has liquid sealed inside it. So you will hear water swishing when you move it.Totally normal. If water is indeed running back into the tub, you need to pull your discharge out of the wall. It should only go in about 2 ft max. Any deeper and you can get syphoning. Dave www.washermd.com

Septic Tank Drain Field


In numerous septic system, waste from toilets, bowls, showers, showers, floor drains and bowls courses through a labyrinth of funneling out to your septic tank or cesspit. The septic tank is typically framed of concrete or gum in more up to date plans with either apertures inside of the tank itself or downstream in the channel or field lines on the surge side of the septic system. Restrictions prevent the waste layer from leaving the tank and compacting the drain ranges. TG Wastewater

Tip

4 Tips for a healthy septic tank system


Living in a rural area and not having a connection to the sewage systems like houses in the cities or suburbs can make waste disposal a little difficult. That's where septic tanks come in they are made to take care of your sewage but if not cared for properly can result in a huge mess and stink. Following these 5 simple tips can help to keep your septic tank running properly and trouble free.

1. Keep rain water away
Make sure that you level the land around the tank so that rain water is diverted away from the tank. If you get too much water into the drain field it will become too soggy and won't neutralize liquid waste.

2. Trees mind their distance!
When trees grow too close to the septic tank their roots can cause damage to the system. A good rule of thumb is to not have any trees closer than 100 feet from the tank.

3. Toilet etiquette
This rule seems to be very obvious, you shouldn't be sending anything that shouldn't be going down the toilet must not go down the toilet. Things like wipes, or sanitary napkins and tampons will clog the septic tank and then you will have a big problem before you know it.

4. Stay away

For the system to function properly you have to make sure that it stays clear and undisturbed. This means don't drive over the drain field or build anything on top of it. Even pouring concrete or asphalt is a no, no.

If there is a problem with your system make sure to call an expert to come and look at it, under no circumstance should you open the tank yourself, there are harmful gases and bacteria in that require you to wear special gear.

I have a model 109163. I'm trying to pump water from a creek. The suction hose is about 6 ft below the pump and 12ft long. The output hose is running about 300 ft at a gradual incline to about 10 ft. My...


In order for the pump to **** up water, it must discharge air. Try this. Install a hose bibb (faucet) in the discharge line over top of the pump. Fill the pump housing with water, turn on the pump and open the hose bibb/faucet until full water flow is established. Almost all air should be out of the pump and suction line at this time. Now when you close the hose bibb/faucet, the pump will have plenty of pressure to fill the long discharge line.
Suction line should be 2-1/2 inch if that is the pump suction size.
What size is your discharge line?
There should be a check valve/foot valve on the end of the line in the creek to keep water in the pump once it is primed.

Is is possible to make a full flush toilet from an American Standard Cadet 3. The toilet is on a septic system and does not have the power to move waste all the way to the septic tank.


If your toilet is not moving waste all the way to the septic, then there may be a blockage in the waste line or it may not be plumbed correctly. There is no reason why you should not be able to make a full flush on septic. I have live on septic for many years and it should flush as well as living in the city. Is your water supply nice and strong? This sound like a gravity issue with the waste line or a blockage, If you can get under your house and see how the waste line is run, that would be helpful, it should be aimed straight down underneath your toilet and never running uphill at any point on the way to the septic tank. Also is there a vent in the waste line at the proper distance. If not, that could also be the issue. Good luck. P.s. does your septic tank need pumped out?

Drain header is approx 6 ft. high-Will the washer pump push water


Hi there.I would try a load with it at that hieght,fill the machine to its highest water level,if the machine has still got water left in it afterwards then there might be a problem.Let me explain something..Washing machines these days have weak pumps designed with a low velocity,not very powerful.they designed to pump only to a 4 or 5ft head pressure wich is just above the water level height in the machine.most pumps are electric but earlier machines had belt driven pumps running straight from the powerful wash motor.nothing could slow them down.Actually your machine might have the pump directly attached to the motor so your is probably running of the main wash motor..I think you will be fine but try what i said anyway in the beginning.hope this help ya!
