Keeping your septic system functioning properly is important for the health of you and your family. A clogged or broken septic system can lead to unpleasant odors, sewage backup in the home, damage to floors and walls, and a costly repair bill. Here are some simple tips that will help keep your septic system running like new:
-Keep it covered! Protecting your yard from excess rainwater runoff will prevent groundwater from entering the tank.
-Find out if you need a leach field. Some areas have stricter rules about how close homes can be built to septic tanks (particularly in rural areas).
-Use only biodegradable products when cleaning around the house – many household cleaners contain ingredients that are harmful to a septic system.
-Use the toilet less often and take shorter showers. This will lessen your burden on the septic tank by making it work less hard to digest all this extra wastewater.
-Get an annual professional inspection.
