Septic Tank Tips

A septic system is a small-scale sewage treatment system common in areas with no connection to main sewage pipes provided by the government. In other words, septic systems are a type of on-site sewage facility.

A septic tank generally consists of tanks between the size of 1,000 and 2,000 gallons that is connected to an inlet wastewater pipe at one end and a septic drainfield at the other. You should have scheduled preventive maintenance done to your tank. This can remove the irreducible solids that settle and gradually fill the tank and reduce its efficiency.

Septic Tips:

  • Limit the water entering your septic tank, and give your system time to rest after heavy use. Use water-saving fixtures; repair leaky toilets and dripping faucets.
  • Avoid using a garbage disposal. Garbage disposals add tremendously to the amount of solids entering your septic tank.
  • Discard grease in the garbage instead of the drain. Grease can clog the septic tank or the soils surrounding the absorption field. Also, use of liquid fabric softeners can contribute to excessive scum in the septic tank.
  • Use toilet paper that decomposes easily. Purchase brands labeled "safe" for septic systems.
