Why is it necessary to maintain my system?

It will reduce cost for repairs or replacements if your system is maintained. It saves you time and money. If you do not maintain your system you put your household and your neighbors at risk for odors and bacteria to seep through the ground.

Are there things I shouldn’t put in my septic tank?

Do not flush anything down your toilet that is not toilet paper, water, or human waste. 

How often should I have my Septic Tank Pumped?

Every 2-3 years is about average for a household. However, if you notice your drains start to slow down you should have them checked even if it has not been 2-3 years, incase there is something wrong with your tank.
