Frequently Asked Questions

What is a septic system?

A septic system, referred to as an OSSF or On-Site Sewage Facility, is a wastewater system designed to treat and dispose of effluent, on the same property that produces the wastewater.

How often should I have my system cleaned?

Our company recommends that you have your system cleaned every 2 to 3 years, depending on the size of your system & the size of your household.

General Septic Service Tips

  • Check with the local regulatory agency or inspector/pumper (US!) if you have a garbage disposal until to make sure that your septic system can handle this additional waste.
  • Check with your local health department before using additives. Commercial septic tank additives DO NOT eliminate the need for periodic pumping and can be harmful to the system.
  • Use water efficiently to avoid overloading the septic system. Be sure to repair leaky faucets or toilets & use high-efficiency fixtures.
  • Use commercial bathroom cleaners and laundry detergents in moderation. Many people prefer to clean their toilets, sinks, showers, and tubs with a mild detergent or baking soda.
  • Check with your local regulatory agency or inspector/pumper (US!) before allowing water softener backwash to enter your septic tank.
  • Keep records of repairs, pumpings, inspections, permits issued, and other system maintenance activities.
  • Learn the location of your septic system. Keep a sketch of it with your maintenance record for service visits.
  • Have your septic system inspected and pumped as necessary by a licensed professional (US!).
  • Plant only grass over and near your septic system. Roots from nearby trees or shrubs might clog and damage the drainfield (if you have one).
