What does the New Year have to do with your Central Florida septic system and drain field? The new year brings the opportunity for a fresh clean start and self improvement. When making your 2019 New Year’s Resolutions this year don’t forget about your home and protecting your family from septic system problems and the overall well being of your drain field, septic tank, and plumbing system.
Septic System New Year’s Resolution
Just as you should have an annual physical check-up, so should your septic system. Though you may not see it, your septic system is constantly at work. It disposes of all your family’s waste water, from the toilet and shower to the sink and washing machine. If it isn’t working properly it can have devastating consequences. A yearly septic system check up is an affordable to ensure everything is working properly and catch any problems early, before they cost a small fortune to repair.
Change Your Septic Systems Diet
Just as a healthy lifestyle and diet will make you healthier this New Year, your septic system will benefit from what you don’t put down the drain.
Think of it as a junk free diet for the disposal, don’t feed it grease, cooking oils, or fat. Avoid giving it pasta, potato skins, coffee grounds, rice, corn husk, or eggshells. Cut out coarse fibrous vegetables and produce, as well as bones or skin from poultry.
Toilets are made to remove waste water and toilet paper (which is made to decompose in the septic tank), nothing else! Avoid flushing coating balls, paper towels or feminine hygiene products. Only put waste water down the sink and shower, don’t put leftover paint or wash paint brushes in the sink.
Saving Money In 2019
Don’t let another year go by without thinking about your septic system, where would you be without it? Keeping these resolutions this year can also save you money by avoiding any emergency situations, backed up septic system, septic failure, clogged toilet and sinks.
