Your septic system is likely something you don’t want to think about. Yet, no thinking about it enough may lead to some smelly issues down the line. There are some important things you should know about your septic system in order to keep it running smoothly. In this video, you will learn some septic system tips.
The first tip is to have your septic system inspected every year or so. This will drastically reduce the likelihood of an unforeseen issue arising.
Further, you should have septic pumping down every three to five years.
Another tip is to put signs in your bathroom to gently inform people what shouldn’t be flushed down the toilet. Only three things should be flushed down the toilet. Those things are toilet paper, human waste, and water. Everything else should go in the trash. Otherwise, you risk the system backing up and causing some potentially major problems. You especially want to avoid flushing any anti-bacterial items such as wipes or soap down the toilet. These items are particularly harmful to your septic system because they upset the natural balance of bacteria in the system that are crucial for breaking down waste.
