When properly installed and maintained, your septic system is designed to last for as long as you own your home. The design of these cost-effective alternatives to the City sewer system is intended to provide your home with on-site sewage disposal. However, in addition to proper installation and design, the health of your septic system relies on proper treatment and maintenance.

Some things you and your family can do to properly maintain your septic system include:

  • Be thoughtful about what you put in your garbage disposal; homes with garbage disposals typically have 50% more solid waste in their septic system, making the chances of clogs that much higher
  • Only flush paper materials that are biodegradable down the toilet; things like cat litter, baby wipes, and feminine napkins should be thrown in the garbage can
  • Use a limited amount of household cleaners; using large amounts of disinfectants, bleach, and other cleaners can disrupt the balance of your septic system
  • Do not rinse things like coffee grounds, egg shells, or grease down the kitchen drain; these materials should not be in your septic system
