Your septic system plays a vital role, and it needs to be used properly and maintained so it can do its job. Here are some things that you should know about septic system requirements in PA.
Why Taking Care of Your Septic System Is Important
What you put into your septic system and how you care for it can impact local waterways and your surrounding community. If contaminants get into the groundwater, they can harm the health of people and wildlife.
Caring for your septic system can save you money in the long run. Maintaining the system and catching issues at an early stage can help you avoid costly bills for repair or replacement and maximize your septic system’s lifespan.
How to Care for Your Septic System
Problems often arise when people put things that they shouldn’t down a sink drain or toilet. Don’t pour chemicals, paint, grease, or gasoline down a drain, and don’t flush anything except waste and toilet paper.
Don’t park vehicles on or near your drain field, and don’t plant trees or bushes nearby. As roots grow, they can damage a septic tank. You might have no idea that there is an issue until you have a sewage leak or another type of serious problem.
A septic tank needs to be pumped on a regular basis to remove waste. A professional can also inspect your septic system for any signs of damage, make repairs, and replace parts that are worn out or near the end of their lifespan.
