Preserve Your Septic System With Our Protection Plan

The Don’ts Of Septic System Maintenance

There are several things you need to avoid doing if you want to keep your septic system up and running in good condition:

  • Do not put the following into your system: fats or grease, motor oils or fuels, disposable diapers, coffee grounds, egg shells, nut shells, filter tip cigarettes, sanitary napkins, tampons, paper towels, paints, chemicals.
  • Vehicles, heavy equipment or livestock can pressure and compact the soil causing damage to the system pipes.
  • Grass is the best cover for your septic system. Concrete, asphalt and plastic prevent oxygen from getting into the soil. Oxygen is needed by bacteria to break down the sewage.
  • Don’t poison your septic tank by draining the following into it: cleaners, paints, solvents, waxes, polishes, coating, and strippers.
