The Do's of Septic Systems

It's important to introduce septic bacteria to your system on a regular basis. Natural bacterial colonies cannot thrive with the increasing use of bacterial cleaners and caustic cleaners. Try to use septic-safe toilet paper; this means avoiding thick papers that are dense with additives, as the bacteria cannot break them down. Here are a few other tips:

• Have Your Tanks Serviced Regularly
• Keep Up with Aerobic and Conventional Service Maintenance

The Don'ts of Septic Systems

When dealing with any kind of septic system, avoid putting non-degradable items into your system. This includes items such as baby wipes, diapers, and paper towels. Avoid using powdered soaps and detergents, as these will not dissolve completely. The remaining residue creates a nucleus in which grease will form, clogging your lines. Other tips include:

• Avoid Water Overuse • Space Out Your Laundry Loads • Take Brief Showers • Repair All Building Leaks
