Maintaining Septic Systems a Must

Maintaining a septic system is not complicated, and inexpensive compared to replacing a system, which can cost upwards of $25,000 or $30,000 depending on the system.  They've become much more expensive to replace, as design and permitting requirements have changed over the years.  If you have an older system, you want to take even more care to maintain.  So, what should you in the way of preventative maintenance?  The following are recommendations from the professionals, including septic engineers:

  • Make sure you pump your septic system regularly.  Ask your local septic service provider how often that should be, because it depends on your system and the size of your tank and number in your household.  On average, it should be about every 3 years
  • Only flush toilet paper.  No feminine or baby wipes/diaper products
  • Garbage disposals are not good to use if you have a septic system
  • Make sure you are not putting any grease or paint or solvents down your drains
  • Using natural cleaning and laundry products will help sustain the integrity of your system. Your system contains living organisms that digest and treat household waste. Pouring toxins down your drain can kill these organisms and harm your septic system.
  • Use water efficiently.  Think about installing energy efficient fixtures.

Taking care of one of your most valuable systems will help ensure its longevity.  If you are thinking of selling at some point, be aware that most buyers and their offers will include a condition for you to pump and scope the system.  Knowing ahead of time that your system is in good working order, can alleviate any stress that might occur otherwise, during the selling process.
