Caring for Your Septic
Regular pump outs are required every 2-3 years depending on the occupancy of your home and size of your tank.
Regular filter cleaning is recommended twice per year, once in the spring and once in the fall. If you don’t have a filter, we can install one for you.
Keep weeping beds clean of obstructions like decks and patios. Never plant trees on or around your weeping bed.
Never dispose of chemicals, cooking oils or grease down your drain.
Use environmentally friendly soaps and cleaners.
Never flush hygienic products or medications down the toilet, only #1 and # 2.
Divert water from softeners to dry wells or sumps.
When doing laundry, space out multiple loads, some in the morning, and some in the evening, to prevent overwhelming your weeping bed.
Don’t drive on your septic tank or weeping bed area.
