Caring for Your Septic System
Paying a couple hundred dollars a month to have the city or county maintain your septic system is bittersweet. Owners of septic systems also experience a bittersweet feeling. On the one hand, you are free from paying monthly sewer bills. On the other, the responsibility of maintaining your septic system is on your shoulders.
Proper care can save you from serious headaches. Remember the customaries: do not flush anything other than toilet paper, pee and poo; do not toss food scraps into the kitchen sink; do not pour used greases, oils, and fats in the drains; and regularly rinse your drains with hot water.
With a septic system, you have to be extra careful, though. There are vital “good” bacteria in the septic tank that break down solid waste into sludge. This saves space. Anti-bacterial soaps and chemicals will harm or kill these helpful bacteria. Be mindful of these friends when you use your system. Avoid pouring bleach, chemical drain cleaners, and anti-bacterial soaps down your drains.
