How to Use a Garbage Disposal with a Septic System

If you are using a garbage disposal with your septic system, is it important to have your septic tank pumped more regularly. Waste from the garbage disposal can clog and damage your septic system. Pumping your septic system every year will keep your system tank clean and unclogged.

Here are a few tips

  • Use your garbage disposal sparingly, if possible.
  • Account for how many people use the garbage disposal and the size of your septic tank.
  • Do not pour grease, bleach or any other household chemicals down the garbage disposal or any other drain.
