Some Tips on How to Care For Your Septic System

1. Inspect septic tank regularly

It is important to contact your septic service professional and let them perform regular maintenance checks to avoid experiencing serious problems. An average household septic system should be monitored and pumped every three to five years. 

How to know if your septic needs to be pumped?

  • If the bottom of the scum layer has reached within 6 inches of the bottom of the outlet. 
  • The top sludge layer is within 12 inches of the outlet 

Contact your Septic tank service professionals and let them check for leaks and examine the scum and sludge levels in your septic tank!

2. Conserve water and use them efficiently

This helps lessen the water that enters the septic system, hence reduces the risk of system failure. 

To help use water wisely it is recommended to use High-efficiency toilets, High-efficiency showerheads, and practicing proper load size when using washing machines can help avoid water waste.

3. Dispose your waste properly

Avoid throwing garbage disposal that may build up and clog your drain field. Never flush cooking oils, solid waste, coffee grounds, cigarette butts, paper towels, and household chemicals.

Why It Matters to Let Expert Inspect Your Septic System

Insufficiently treated wastewater contains harmful bacteria and viruses that may cause disease if not properly maintained. It may contaminate nearby water that may spread and affect the health of people living nearby with different infectious diseases like acute gastrointestinal illness, hepatitis, eye, and ear infections to name a few.

3. Helps Protect the environment

About more than 4 billion gallons of wastewater are being released below the ground surface every day. A septic system that is not properly working may disperse harmful bacteria and viruses to the ground which will eventually enter streams, lakes, and harm the ecosystem.
