Septic System Tips

A PROPERLY DESIGNED, INSTALLED & MAINTAINED SEPTIC SYSTEM WILL ADEQUATELY TREAT YOUR SEWAGE.

A FAILED SEPTIC SYSTEM IS UNHEALTHFUL, ILLEGAL, AND A NUISANCE.

PUMP YOUR TANK(S) EVERY TWO TO THREE YEARS, SOMETIMES MORE OFTEN DEPENDING ON HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE USING THE SYSTEM, THE TANK CAPACITY, AND THE AGE/TYPE OF LEACH FIELD.

  • Know the location of your septic tank and pump station if you have one.
  • Mark the covers clearly, have exact measurements, or install risers.
  • If your tank has a filter it should be cleaned yearly and every time you pump the tank.
  • Minimize or eliminate the use of a sink disposal if the system was not designed to include it.
  • Eliminate “wash day” and spread loads throughout the week instead.
  • Conserve water and use water-reducing appliances and fixtures if possible.
  • Repair leaky fixtures.
  • Make sure that water from the roof, gutters, and foundation drains do not flow over or into the leachfield.
  • Keep deep-rooted trees and shrubs from growing on your leachfield and around the septic tank area. 

PLEASE DO NOT DO THE FOLLOWING:

  • flush or put down the drains bulky waste, grease, colored toilet paper, disposable diapers or wipes, feminine products, plastic, toxic materials, paint, solvents, oils, poisons or pesticides which can kill beneficial bacteria and contaminate groundwater.
  • use commercial additives or enzymes.
  • discharge water softener treatment backflush or sump pumps into the system if the system was not designed to include them.
  • allow vehicles, livestock, pools, and/or stacks of wood on your leachfield, as the weight can compact the soils and/or break the pipes or chambers.
  • cover the leachfield with asphalt or concrete.
  • burn brush or anything else over your leachfield.
  • attempt to repair a failing system yourself. Hire an experienced septic system contractor.

 

ANY SOGGY AREAS AROUND THE LEACHFIELD OR DISAGREEABLE ODORS INDICATES A PROBLEM
HAVE IT CHECKED IMMEDIATELY!
