Septic Tank Maintenance

While your septic tank is not something thought about on a daily basis, there are some things that you can do to ensure that your septic system runs smoothly:

  • Do not pour grease fats or oil down your drains
  • Do not dispose of household chemicals down your drain. When buying such cleaners, some bottles indicate that they are “safe for use with septic tanks” (always keep an eye out for those)
  • Do not dispose of any non-biodegradable items down your toilet (cigarette butts, baby wipes, etc.)
  • Space out your water usage. Do laundry throughout the week, not all in one day
  • Have your septic tank pumped out every 1-2 years
