Septic System Tips

1. Inspect your septic tank annually. Generally, septic tanks should be pumped every three to five years. An inspection by you or a professional may show that you need to pump more or less often. Regular pumping ensures that solids will not flow from the septic tank into the drainfield. Solids can destroy the drainfield, and once a drainfield has failed, pumping will not bring it back to life.

2. Use less water Home Water Savings Makes Sense. Reducing the amount of wastewater entering your septic system may increase its life span, as excessive water is a major cause of system failure. Too much water from laundry, dishwasher, toilets, baths, and showers may not allow enough time for sludge and scum to separate, causing solids to pass out of the tank and into the drainfield, ultimately clogging the pipes. To reduce household water use:

  • Limit the use of large water guzzling appliances, such as dishwashers and washing machines.
  • Use water-saving bathroom and kitchen fixtures (such as faucets, showerheads, and toilets).
  • Spread laundry over the entire week and avoid partial loads.
  • Fix all faucet and toilet leaks promptly.

3. Direct water from downspouts and roofs away from the drainfield. Additional water from these sources may prevent your drainfield from working properly.

4. Keep cars and trucks off the septic tank and drainfield areas. This prevents pipes from breaking and soil from becoming compacted. Compacted soils can't absorb water from the drainfield.

5. Use phosphate-free detergent. Phosphorus is harmful to the environment, as it can deplete oxygen which is vital to fish and other aquatic organisms. The use of phosphate-free detergents, also helps prevent algae problems in nearby lakes and streams.

6. Install risers for easier access. Risers from the tank lids to the soil surface make maintenance easier.
