Home septic systems need pumping on a regular basis, typically every 2-5 years, to avoid risking costly repairs and health concerns. You will need to get your septic tank pumped if you notice sluggish drains or hear any gurgling noise. But, it's recommended to get your tank pumped before the problem turns out to be major. If you have soft or mushy areas in your yard, it is an indication there could be problems like a full septic tank, damaged septic pipes, or septic field blockage. Foul smells also indicate a septic system that needs attention.

How to Avoid Chemical Contamination of Your Septic System

Moderate use of household drain solvents, cleaners, disinfectants etc., should not interfere with the operation of the septic tank system; however, indiscriminate use may cause problems.

Do not discharge water softener wastewater into the septic tank unless the system was designed for the extra capacity. Not only does the extra water decrease the capacity of your system but also the added salts may lead to a failure of the leaching bed. Water softener wastewater should be directed to a leaching pit.

The use of garbage grinders is not recommended as sludge accumulation in the septic tank can be increased by up to 40%. The tank will then have to be pumped annually.

Do not dispose of fuels, grease, paints, thinners, weed or insect killers, cigarette butts, condoms, paper towels, diapers, sanitary napkins and more into the septic tank system. A septic tank system can only handle biodegradable items.

There should be no need to use commercial "starters,” “bacterial feeds,” or “cleaners." Bacteria in a septic tank system occurs naturally.
