We receive inquiries all the time asking how people can add life to their residential septic system. You can save yourself the hassle and expense of dealing with an unruly septic system by implementing the ideas below into your daily routine. Should you have issues with your septic system, the professional team of experts at Nix Tank Company
can help with all of your problems. The following list recommends a few precautions you can take that will help to reduce the need for frequent septic pumping services:
Reduce toilet flushing — Toilet paper is the only thing that you should flush. It might come as a surprise, but septic tanks are not designed to handle other products like sanitary products, paper towels, diapers, cigarettes and other similar items. These items can and will cause damage to your septic tank and will only increase the frequency with which you have to have your tank serviced.
Minimize the use of your kitchen garbage disposal — Septic tank systems are not designed to handle the process of breaking down food, grease/oil and other items that are often placed into disposals. Instead, utilize your garbage can or create a compost heap.
Lower your total water usage — Keep a close eye on the items in your home that may be in need of some attention. Attend to faucets that leak, toilets that run all the time, don't let the water run while you brush your teeth/shave, shorten your showers, seek out low-use water appliances (like toilets), turn off fountains and other water features when not in use and don't over-water your lawn. All of these items can help reduce the load that is placed on the septic system and can prolong the viability of your system.
