  • Poor soil type
  • Harmful products used at home that are flushed down the toilet or make their way into shower and sink drains

Septic systems fail for many reasons, but poor maintenance is at the top of the list! If you invest in top-quality septic tank maintenance, your septic system will last for decades.

Septic Tank Maintenance Tip: Control What Goes Down The Drain

Septic tank maintenance starts with awareness of what enters the septic tank. Many items are harmful to septic systems because the bacteria in the septic tank can’t process them. Never flush or rinse these items down a drain:

  • Non-biodegradable items: latex products, dental floss, hair, cat litter, small toys, etc. 
  • Medicines
  • Cosmetics
  • Antibacterial soap
  • Fats, oils, grease, and small bits of food
  • Toxic chemicals: paint, cleaning products, drain cleaners, bleach, etc.

6 Additional Tips For Keeping Your Septic System Working Properly:

  • Don’t overload the septic system by using too much water at one time.
  • Don’t drive vehicles or heavy machinery over the septic tank or drain field.
  • Schedule septic tank pumping every 2-5 years and ask for a leak inspection.
  • Use a bacteria additive to replenish the healthy bacteria in your septic tank.
  • Ask your local septic tank technician to install an effluent filter.
  • Keep detailed septic tank maintenance records- this will help you know when to use additives, and prospective buyers will want the information if you sell your home.

Septic Tank Pumping: An Essential Maintenance Step

One of the most essential septic tank maintenance steps you can take is to schedule septic tank pumping. The non-biodegradable waste that isn’t processed in the septic tank forms sludge. Over time, this sludge and scum from unprocessed fats, oils, and grease, build up in the septic tank. Septic tank pumping is the only way to remove the sludge and scum, which will cause blockages in the drain field if not removed in a timely manner. Bynum Septic offers septic tank pumping as part of our septic tank maintenance services.
