Septic System Care is essential to protect drinking water and prevent backups.

Septic System Care is a annual homeowner responsibility to prevent blockages, and seepage into local drinking systems.  Failed septic systems can cause an extraordinary amount of damage to property here in Indianapolis, IN (Adding to the problem, a system failure is not going to win you any friends with the neighbors, either.). The following are a few tips regarding what you need to know about septic system maintenance so you can avoid the problems, maintain friends and neighbors and keep your costs down.

Septic System Maintenance is daily

The first stage of septic system care happens every day: using the system properly in the first place in order to prevent any major disasters. One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make for a septic system is pouring used cooking oil down the drain. Doing this even one time can clog your septic system creating backup problems. Always dispose of cooking oil in a container and put it in your trash or in a properly marked receptacle at landfills or waste facilities.

Cleaning products damage septic systems

Cleaning products are another septic system care item. Bleach, antibacterial kitchen spray, window cleaner and so on can wreck havoc on your septic system. It is unavoidable that some of these products will eventually find their way down your drains and into your septic system, but do not pour bottles of the stuff down your drains. If you need to dispose of old cleaning fluids, simply toss the bottle with the liquid in it in your trash, preferably recyclables.

Type of Toilet Paper matters

Make sure the toilet paper you choose says that it is compatible with septic systems – the chemicals in your septic system must be able to break down the paper or it will clog. If your toilet or drains clog inside your home, make sure any drain clearing products you choose are compatible with septic systems. Many are not, and the wrong product will eat through your pipes.

Professional Maintenance

These are just a few tips to help you maintain a healthy septic system.  However, using your system properly day in and day out is simply not enough. Every septic system needs to be professionally maintained as well. A maintenance crew needs to come out, clear your sludge and scum out of your tank and make sure the pipes and pumps associated with the system are in working order and not leaking.  With normal use, your septic system should need a professional cleaning every two years.
