Driven By Trust

The Secret

The secret to an effective and long-lasting septic system is regular maintenance. A family of 4 should expect to have their tank pumped every 2-3 years. During our visit we will also inspect lines and the drainage field to ensure everything is working properly.

A Few Tips

  • Avoid pouring fats, grease, and solids down the drain. These substances can clog a system’s pipes and drain field. Only put things in the drain or toilet that belong there. For example, coffee grounds, dental floss, disposable diapers and wipes, feminine hygiene products, cigarette butts, and cat litter can all clog and potentially damage septic systems.

  • Be water-efficient and spread out water use.

  • Fix plumbing leaks and install faucet aerators and water-efficient products.

  • Spread out laundry and dishwasher loads throughout the day – too much water at once can overload a system that hasn’t been pumped recently.

  • Do not park or drive on a system’s drain field, where the vehicle’s weight could damage buried pipes or disrupt underground flow.
