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. Maintain your septic system by 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.
