How much do you really know about your Central Florida home has a septic system? If not properly taken care of, it leads to messy and expensive problems. Here are a few crucial tips to keep your septic system running smoothly and even save you money.
Watch what you flush
Only human waste and toilet paper should be flushed. Don’t treat your toilet like a garbage can. Even things you think that wouldn’t matter like dental floss, shouldn’t be flushed. Floss can easily get tied up in the filter and cause serious issues. Other non-biodegradable items can clog the system and fill the tank up sooner than expected.
Make sure the tank is pumped regularly
Depending on the size of the tank and how many people live in the home, determines how often the tank should be pumped. Typically it is every two to three years. Forgetting about the tank until waste water start backing up into the bathtub or shower, can cause problems you don’t want to think about.
It is recommended to have your system inspected on a yearly basis to keep your septic system in good working order. There are many parts to the system, each plays a crucial role in removing all the waste water from your home. This will catch a small issue before it’s a messy and costly problem.
