Tips for Septic Service
Proper and regular maintenance on your septic system will allow you to maximize its performance, extend the lifespan of the system, and help protect the environment. Our team recommends the following tips to maintain your septic system.
With regular pumping, you can prevent unwanted sludge and solid material from getting into the tile bed and potentially damaging the system. We recommend regular maintenance pumping every 3 years.
You should be conservative with water use to prevent extra water from getting into your system from runoff and sump pumps. We recommend directing any additional water runoff from buildings and roof tops away from the septic system.
Additionally, conservative paper usage will help prevent blockages in the system. Any paper used with your septic system should be biodegradable.
Avoid planting shrubs or trees on or near the septic system. Roots will infiltrate the system, creating blockages and damaging the tank and tile bed.
Nothing should be built, erected or driven on or close to the septic system. Weight from structures or vehicles can damage the system and compaction of the soil will prevent the system from absorbing the water effectively and the way the system was designed to.
Using detergents or soaps that are low phosphate or biodegradable are recommended as well as using minimal amounts. A dryer sheet is also a good alternative to putting liquid fabric softener into the system.
A septic system works with naturally occurring bacteria, breaking down the solid waste in your tank. To ensure the bacteria keeps working the way it should in your tank, certain things should never be put or flushed into the septic tank.
A list of some of these items includes:
- Garbage or wrappers
- Cooking grease
- Cigarette butts/filters
- Sanitary napkins
- Plastics or latex products, including condoms and condom wrappers
- Bandages and cotton balls
- Coffee grounds
- Paper towels and coloured paper
- Baby wipes or cleaning wipes – these WILL NOT break down, and they WILL plug your tank
- Automotive fluids
- Harsh chemicals such as chlorine, paint thinners, pesticides and disinfectants
