Tips for Septic Tank Treatment
Normal amounts of detergents, kitchen wastes, laundry wastes, and household chemicals do not affect the proper operation of household sewage treatment systems. However, excessive quantities can be harmful.
Avoid the disposal of cigarette butts, disposable diapers, sanitary napkins, etc. into your household sewage system. These items do not readily decompose.
Do not plant trees around your leach field. Roots from trees in the immediate area of the absorption lines may clog the system.
The contents of the septic tank should be pumped every five years or when the total depth of sludge and scum exceeds one-third of the liquid depth of the tank.
