Protect Your Septic System: Five Essential Tips


If you want to protect your septic system from stress and overuse, there are a wide range of things you can do. Ultimately, protecting your septic system saves you money in the long run, as it helps you avoid costly repairs. Here are five tips you should consider:

1. Use cleaners as directed and avoid pouring toxins down the toilet

Although you can run bleach, toilet cleaner and other cleaners through your septic system, you need to keep in mind that these cleaners can be caustic and can cause damage to pipes or disrupt the chemical balance in the septic tank itself. Use cleaners sparingly and follow any directions on the side of the bottle.

Additionally, avoid pouring other toxins down your toilet. Although it can be tempting to throw paint, varnish, pesticides and other items that you aren't typically allowed to send to the landfill down your toilet, it can wreak havoc on your septic system.

2. Don't pour non-human waste items down the toilet

In addition to being careful with chemicals, don't put other non-human waste items down the toilet. This includes coffee grounds, dental floss, disposable diapers, cat litter, cigarettes, paper towels or even tampons.

3. Consider switching to family cloth

Although you can put toilet paper down your toilet, it can still be hard on your septic system. Luckily, there are ways that you can eliminate toilet paper. Consider using family cloth. Family cloth is basically scraps of cloth that you use to wipe, and then you wash and reuse these scraps.

You just keep a couple of small bags in your bathroom. One bag holds unused pieces of family cloth while the other one holds used cloth.

4. Hire porta-potties for parties

In some cases, even lots of human waste can be a strain on your system. If you are having a large party, don't just invite everyone to use your toilets. Instead, consider hiring a portable toilet. That way, the waste is picked up and take away by the portable toilet company rather than put into your septic system.

5. Get routine septic inspections

If you want to ensure your septic system is working correctly, have it routinely inspected on a regular basis. A septic tank professional can let you know how often you should schedule inspections based on how often you use your toilets, the age of the system and other factors.
