Septic Tips

  • Keep it Protected—Get it Inspected! Have your septic tank inspected and pumped out by a licensed septic tank contractor as needed (on average every three to five years).
  • Don’t Strain your Drain! Use water efficiently to avoid overtaxing your system. Fix household leaks, run the dishwasher and clothes washer only on full loads, and consider installing high-efficiency fixtures.
  • Think at the Sink! Don’t pour grease, fats, or harmful chemicals like paints and solvents down your sink. They can clog or harm your system.
  • Don’t Overload the Commode! Do not flush non-degradable items such as dental floss, diapers, coffee grounds, or feminine hygiene products.
  • Shield your Field! Care for your drainfield by only planting grass, not driving or parking on it, and reducing roof and surface water drainage near the drainfield.
