If you have a septic system on your property in Warm Beach, you may be wondering about septic system maintenance. If you’ve never owned a home with a septic system before, even the vocabulary may seem like rocket science. Not to worry! Modern septic systems are designed to last for many years and they’re easy to maintain.
Stay on Schedule
Like so many things in our lives, staying on a regular schedule with septic tank pumping will keep your system healthy. With most systems, every three to five years is sufficient.
Question What You Flush
If you’re not sure which things aren’t safe to flush, consider this list. Waste like diapers, cigarette butts and coffee grounds slowly decompose, and items which don’t get flushed down drains completely can cause problems. Avoid flushing feminine products. Other commonly flushed items which cause clogs and damage include hair clippings, dirt and latex condoms.
Monitor Water Usage
You can also extend the lifespan of your septic system by monitoring how much water your household uses. Doing this can ensure that you won’t stress your system with too much wastewater. Using less water can also increase the time between septic tank pumping.
