Tips to Prevent Septic Backflow and Flooding

Your septic system is one of the most vital parts of your home. It keeps your drains flowing smoothly. When your septic tank is destabilized or damaged in any way, it can cause a huge headache and a ton of effort to fix.

Our team at Metro Septic Pumping can take a look at your septic tank to assure you that it is functioning properly. We can also fix any damage that seems to be causing trouble. Give us a 
call at Metro Septic Pumping and we’ll gladly take a look. 

Dispose of Trash Properly

There are a few ways to keep your septic tank healthy and functioning properly. One tip to prevent backflow and flooding of your septic tank is to dispose of garbage properly. The solids that go down your drains and into the septic tank are usually broken down naturally by the bacteria in the septic tank. However, if the solid can’t be broken down, it can accumulate and start clogging the system. If you suspect a clog or damage to your septic system, give us a call at Metro Septic Pumping, we’re here to help!

Don’t Use Harsh Chemicals

The natural bacteria in the septic tank helps to break down the waste that flows in from your drains. When chemicals from shampoos, soaps, cleaning products, medications or other substances enter the system, it can throw off the balance in the system and eventually lead to clogs, damages, or flooding. It’s important to catch these imbalances early on to prevent damage or bigger repairs. Call us at Metro Septic Pumping to look at your septic system today. Scheduling with us is as easy as a click of a button.

Take A Preventative Measure

Life happens. No matter how careful you may be in protecting your drains, there’s the chance that something unforeseen can happen. Your toddler may throw something in that may cause havoc to your septic system or tree roots may invade your property. To prevent such unforeseen circumstances, it may be a good idea to install a backflow valve. Having a physical device to protect your home could save a lot of time and money later on. If you have any questions about preventative measures, let us know. Give us a call at Metro Septic Pumping and our team will be happy to help. 

Take Note of Rainy Weather

One of the intrinsic limitations of a septic system is that it uses the ground for water treatment. On rainy days and particularly when there are heavy rainstorms, your septic system may seem to work a little slower. Considering this, it may be helpful to give your septic system a break. Taking shorter showers, holding off on laundry, flushing the toilet less and avoiding any unnecessary water use are a few things that may help.
