3 Tips for Maintaining Your Septic System
June 25, 2014
- Conserve Water - Your septic tank can only hold so much water at once. Conserve water by taking shorter showers, doing laundry over multiple days, and so on to avoid septic tank overflow.
- Only Biodegradable Items - Biodegradable goods naturally decompose overtime. Flushing non-biodegradables into your septic system reversely can build up and clog your septic system, causing overflow, or water contamination. Stick to flushing only biodegradables for septic tank durability.
- Avoid Heaviness Above - The last thing you want is a heavy item crushing your septic system. Be sure to build swing sets, garages, and the like away from your underground septic system to avoid accidents.
