Tips to Keep In Its Best Shape
One of the worst things that could happen to your system is a septic clog, and it can get expensive. So, you should avoid the use of certain cleaners, soaps, and even drain line openers. Additionally, never pour oil or grease down the drain. Another tip is never to flush paper, cigarette butts, pills, paint thinners, etc.
Moreover, every single septic tank should get an inspection every three years, and sometimes, you’ll have to pump it. But you should check the laws of your area to see if they recommend doing it more often.
Finally, you can add oxy-tabs to your system, which increases oxygen and bacteria to help break down the waste you flush or pour down the drain.
It’s easy to follow these tips. Not doing so could lead to serious problems that will create headaches and financial strains on your family. Watch the rest of the video for more details!
