Septic System Maintenance TipsProper septic system maintenance tips can save home and business owners thousands of dollars each year by helping them to better utilize and protect their septic system investment. While some of these may seem logical, here is a list of many things you can do to keep your septic system running its best for many years to come.

  • Limit water use over short periods. Perhaps the most important of the septic system maintenance tips we can provide is to limit the amount of waste water you’re adding to your septic system over the course of several hours. Because septic systems function on the basis of allowing solids to settle out of the waste water added to a septic system, adding too much water in a short period of time can overflow the system or push untreated or impure effluent into the drain field.
  • Install a filter. A good filtration system will help prevent damaging solids from entering the septic tank, and an effluent filtration system will prevent solids from entering and clogging the drain field. Filters are relatively simple to install and always a good investment.
  • Have the septic tank pumped regularly. Depending on the size of your household, the average water usage, and the efficiency of the system, you can determine the frequency with which the tank should be pumped. This pumping will coincide with an inspection of the system to make sure all aspects are functioning as desired. We will also be better able to diagnose and correct minor issues that may arise at this time.
  • Watch what you put down the drain. Septic systems work by allowing beneficial bacteria to digest potentially harmful waste and turn it into much more pure effluent that can be safely discharged into the soil, where other bacteria will render any potential dangers inert as the water re-enters the environment. Harsh chemicals can kill these bacteria and compromise the system, as can large amounts of indigestible solids.
