How to Extend Your Septic System’s Lifespan

Do you use an in-sink garbage disposal regularly?
 

Do you know how to properly maintain your septic drain field? 


There are a few things you can do to properly maintain your septic system to extend its lifespan: 

  • Inspect and pump frequently - knowing how often your system needs to be pumped and inspected will prevent clogging and wear on pipes. 
  • Use water efficiently - when your household conserves water, less water enters your system, reducing the risk of malfunction 
  • Properly dispose of waste - save your system by knowing what can’t be flushed or poured down the drain!
  • Maintain your drain field - Leaving the area above and around your drain field clear will prevent the weight from damaging your system.

Your Garbage Disposal Unit Impacts Your Septic System

Using an in-sink garbage disposal can impact how often you need to pump your septic tank!

Are you getting your septic system pumped often enough?


How it Impacts Your Septic System 


Food waste is slowly digested by the good bacteria in your septic tank, which accumulates scum and sludge. If too much water enters your septic system, the tank will fill with solids, which can get pushed into the drain field and cause clogged pipes. Using a garbage disposal will increase how often you’ll need to get your septic system pumped to prevent clogging and reduce the risk of bacteria buildup.
