4 Ways You Can Be Kind to Your Septic Tank (and Reap the Rewards!)
When you have a septic system, you know how important the tank is to the rest of your system. The septic tank is the first stop on the line of wastewater treatment, and a properly functioning tank is only going to be beneficial to your septic system. There are a few things that you can do to ensure that your tank is able to work properly. Being kind to your septic tank, and reaping the rewards, includes some of the following actions:
- Watch what goes down the drain. Your septic tank is where waste is treated and separated. The solids sink to the bottom, while the effluent water rises to the top and then is further treated in your septic system. Small things and changes can alter the chemistry going on with solid waste breakdown, and bleach is highly problematic. Watch out for the types of soaps, cleaners and other materials you are using and ensure they are septic safe.
- Vary your laundry days. Even water-conscious washing machines use quite a bit of water. Choosing to do laundry over the course of several days instead of several loads on one day can prevent an overwhelming surge of wastewater in your machine.
- Make garbage disposal use minimal. Your garbage disposal grinds solids and food particles so that they don’t clog your pipes. With a septic system, they can be very difficult to break down. If you have a septic system, get in the habit of scraping your plates into the trash rather than relying on your garbage disposal.
- Don’t skip maintenance. Professional maintenance is so helpful when you have a septic tank! Your septic tank will definitely perform better for you and have fewer issues if you schedule regular maintenance checks.
