Busy Bee Septic and Excavating LLC – How to Protect Your Septic System

Septic service is an effective way to treat and dispose of sewage and wastewater from your home when public sewer services are not available. Your septic system separates the solid and liquid parts of waste so that the solids stay in the tank and the liquid part floats to the drainfield for absorption. Proper maintenance and care are important to ensure that your septic system works properly.

Your local health department will typically require that your septic system be inspected and cleaned (pumped) every one to three years, depending on the size of the tank and number of people in your home. A septic tank should be placed away from areas susceptible to flooding and surface water ponding, and should be easily accessible for inspections and pumping.

Keep pets and children away from the septic system, as they can damage it or cause a leak. Keeping grass, plants and shrubs away from the septic tank and drainfield also helps to protect the system.

If you plan to build a pool, add a driveway or other structures that may impact the septic system and its absorption field, consult your county health department before starting construction. A permit is required, and an onsite inspector must be hired to verify that the septic system is not overloaded.

Reduce your water use to help the septic system work more efficiently. Conserving water can lower your utility bills and prevent septic system problems. Check out EPA’s WaterSense program for simple ways to save water and tips on choosing water-efficient appliances and fixtures.
