The Do's and Don'ts of Septic System Maintenance

1. Provide regular inspections and maintenance checks every three years
2. Mark your calendar. Choose a date and time of the year that is easy to remember to have your septic system inspected
3. Conserve water. Too much water can cause solids to escape, plugging your septic system
4. Never drive a vehicle or use heavy equipment over your drain field area
5. Have a healthy grass cover on the absorption field area, but avoid planting shrubs and/or trees within 30 feet of your drain field
6. Know what you can and cannot flush or pour down the drain that can cause septic problems:
  • Pet waste
  • Medications
  • Grease
  • Toxic chemicals
  • Pesticides
  • Disinfectants
  • Acids
  • Bleaches
  • Paint or Paint Thinner
“Limit use of garbage disposal. Any home with a garbage disposal needs its septic tank pumped more often”
7. If it did not go through your body, it probably won't benefit the septic system
8. Do not treat your system with any enzymes, bacteria additives or chemicals unless recommended by a professional. Some of these products contain organic chemicals and may even damage the drain field or contaminate the groundwater and nearby wells
9.Keep a record of all septic pumping, inspections, and maintenance
