The EPA suggests getting your system inspected and pumped at least every three years by a professional. This ensures any septic problems are addressed and your system flows freely.

Be careful what you put into your septic system. Anything flushed or washed down the sink has to be broken down in your system. When your system can’t break down material, it will back up and cause problems with your septic system.

Simple Maintenance Tips

  • Practice caution when it comes to using septic additives. There is a lack of extensive research supporting the use of additives. Many times, additives do not benefit to the health of your septic system and in some cases can cause damage.
  • Don’t park, build, or plant anything over your septic system. This could damage it completely.
  • Learn the location of your septic system and keep a record of maintenance and repair.
