Maintaining and Caring For Your Septic System
  • Pump your system ever two to three years or when the total depth of sludge/scum reaches a depth of one third of the liquid in the tank. Lack of periodic pumping can result in solids being carried to the drain field causing premature failure of the absorption field which is much more costly than periodic maintenance pumping.
  • Avoid excessive quantities of detergents/household chemicals and food wastes. Normal amounts are not harmful.
  • Avoid throwing non decomposable waste such cigarette butts, diapers, sanitary napkins, tampons and plastics into the system. Throw them in the trash.
  • Garbage disposals are not recommended for homes with sewage treatment systems as the introduce solids into the tank and absorption fields.
  • All surface water coming from roof spouts, cellar and footing drainage should not go into the system but should be discharged to the ground draining away from the absorption bed without treatment. If surface water is flowing into your field, install a ditch or berm to interrupt it from reaching the field.
  • Tree roots may clog the system avoid them in the immediate area of your septic system.
  • Above ground pools should also not be placed near an absorption field.
  • Never enter a septic tank you could die from gas asphyxiation.
  • Keep tank and pump lids water tight.
  • Do not drive heavy equipment over absorption field.
  • Install risers with leak proof lids to provide easy maintenance and repair access and reduce landscape damage when the system is uncovered for service.
  • Have your system enlarged if your home has more than two people per bedroom or if you add bedrooms in an addition as that is all the systems are normally designed to handle.
