Caring For Your Septic System

Below are just a few examples on how to properly take care of your septic system...

Make sure your septic tank is pumped regularly

The state of North Carolina recommends every 3-5 years​
Having your tank pumped regularly can also prevent solids from going to your drain field

Keep traffic away from your drain field

Parking cars or moving heavy equipment over the drain field can compact the soil and damage your drain lines​

Don't use a garbage disposal

Using a garbage disposal adds solids and grease to your system​​
More frequent cleaning may be needed if one is used

Try to keep run offs away from your system

Water from roofs, driveways, or patios can overwhelm your system and cause back ups​

Use bacteria treatment routinely

Bacteria treatment can prevent build up of waste and avoid future problems with your system
