You may not think about your septic tank every day but it’s still important to regularly maintain your system. Septic tanks consist of multiple factors that work together to keep everything running efficiently and correctly. If one of these aspects fail, your property can be exposed to contamination.

Everything that is flushed away will end up in your septic tank, therefore non-biodegradable items will immediately impact the functionality of your machine. There are many things one can do in order to prevent any serious problems within the system. For example, never flush anything other than human waste and toilet paper down your toilet. Furthermore, try to use water efficiently and avoid excessive hate. It is also a good idea to avoid using harsh cleaning products as these may kill the necessary bacteria in your septic tank. Another good tip is to take care of the area around your septic tank, make sure you never plant trees or park cars above the tank.
