A septic system is a complex wastewater treatment and disposal system that requires proper care to ensure it continues to function properly. Without regular maintenance, the system could break down or fail, causing significant damage to your home and property, health risks to you and your family, and environmental harm to the surrounding environment. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure with septic systems, and routine septic tank inspections and maintenance are critical.

Maintaining Your Home’s Health: The Importance of Septic Service

Your septic tank can only hold so much solid waste, and it will eventually fill up. Regular septic tank pumping will remove this excess and keep your septic system functioning correctly.

Other things you can do to help your septic system work properly include:

Limiting the use of your garbage disposal will minimize the amount of extra solids that go into your septic tank. Do not pour cooking greases or oils down the drain. These can harden in the septic tank and clog the inlet or outlet. Grease can also clog soil pores in the drainfield and destroy it.

Map out the location of your septic tank and other system components, and mark them with permanent stakes or flags. This will simplify access and prevent you from damaging system components when performing yard work or doing home improvements. Avoid parking cars or equipment on or over the septic tank or drainfield. Don’t plant trees, shrubs or grass in the immediate area of your septic system, as their roots may grow into and clog the pipes.
