Maintaining Your Septic System and Quick Tips

Keeping a clean septic system can be very important to avoid large problems later on. Here are some tips on how you can help maintain a clean septic system:
  • Make sure your household is on a regular septic service scheduled. The servicing will depend on your household size, tank size, and usage of the garbage disposal
  • High-Pressure Water Jetting will help eliminate accumulated debris within your pipes and is a recommended service that should be done every five years.
  • It is recommended that your filter is cleaned or replaced when you service your system. This prevents debris from entering the leachfield.

Quick Tips:

  • Make sure not to plant trees or large shrubs near your septic system.
  • Do not pave or build anything above the leachfield
  • Try to conserve water usage. Only do laundry when you have full loads, not a lot of small loads. Make sure to repair leaky faucets.
  • Do not park vehicles over your system. Pipes can be damaged due to the weight of the vehicle.
