How Does a Septic Tank Work?
Septic systems work by channeling wastewater into an underground septic tank for treatment. In the tank, wastewater is allowed to form separate layers: scum (the top layer composed of oils and grease), waste water and particles (the middle layer), and sludge (the bottom layer composed of heavier particles). Bacteria in the tank break down the solid waste, allowing water to separate and drain from the system more easily. Septic tanks need to be cleaned every few years (or once a year for small tanks) - if they aren't, the vital bacteria that make the system work can die.
How to Keep Your Septic System Healthy
- Switch to a more water-efficient toilet. Reducing the amount of water that flows through the toilet will make things easier on your septic system.
- Don’t flush any non-flushable items down the toilet, including tissues, sanitary products, or garbage. Even allegedly “flushable” wipes can wreak havoc on your septic system.
- Don’t pour oils and grease down the drain – they can build up in your pipes over time and completely clog your plumbing.
- Be mindful of what you put down your garbage disposal to avoid clogs and backups. As a general rule, don’t attempt to put fibrous vegetables, egg shells, coffee grounds, fruit pits, bones, or large quantities of rice or pasta down your garbage disposal.
- Use products that are safe for septic systems and avoid flushing or rinsing any toxic chemicals down the drain.
- Keep trees away from your septic system, as tree roots can encroach on your pipes and/or tank and cause serious backups.
- Have your septic system professionally serviced at least every 5 years or less.
