How often should you schedule maintenance on your septic system?
Though there are many variables when it comes to inspections and pumping the septic tank, having regular maintenance is far less expensive than replacing the system. In general, you have your tank pumped every 3 to 5 years and an inspection every 1 to 3 years.
Can I really flush pet products if it says septic safe?
We love our pets, but it isn’t always feasible to let them outside. So, what about the litter, disposable bags, and pads that so many of us deal with on a daily basis? Many of them say they are safe to flush, even if you have a septic system.
The fact is, that most of these products have microbes and bacteria to absorb the odors and germs can be detrimental on the good bacteria found inside your septic tank.
These types of products are made to stick together when they get wet. Not only does this clog your pipes, it can stick to other debris and the pipe itself.
If these products make it to your septic tank, they won’t break down. Instead, they build up and eventually cause undo stress and overload the tank.
Parts of these products often end up in the liquid waste section of the septic tank. Which means they are discharged through into the drain field through a series of small perforated pipes. This is where contaminants and pathogens are neutralized before going into the soil. If these pipes are clogged with litter it prevents waste water from making it to the drain field.
