HOW DO I MAINTAIN MY SEPTIC SYSTEM?
If properly designed, constructed, and maintained; your septic system can provide long-term, effective treatment of household waste water.
Your system should be pumped/cleaned on a regular basis, every three to five years-depending on the number of members of your household and the age of your system.
USE WATER EFFICIENTLY
Using more water than the soil can absorb is the most common reason for failure. The more water a household conserves, the less water that enters the septic system. Efficient water use can improve the operation of the septic system and reduce the risk of failure.
- Replace your existing toilets and shower heads with high-efficiency models
- Install aerators in the kitchen and bathroom faucets
- Repair leaky faucets and toilets
- Run the dishwasher and clothes washer only when they are full
WATCH YOUR DRAIN
What goes down your drain can have a major impact on how well your septic system works. A garbage disposal takes a lot of water to move scraps down the drain. Once in the tank, some of the solids break down by bacterial action, but most of the grindings will have to be pumped out. Using a disposal could cause you to have your tank pumped more often. Composting is a better way to recycle kitchen scraps.Using a lot of clorox bleach will effect how well your septic system works. Your system needs bacteria to break down the solids (toilet paper, feminine products, etc.) in your tank so if you use a lot of bleach it kills the bacteria in your tank, therefore not allowing your solids to break down and go out your drain field.
