Once we’ve completed your septic system installation, there are several things you can do to get the most life out of your new septic system.

Do’s & Don’ts to Maintain your Septic System


  • Conserve water to avoid overloading your septic system.
  • Have your septic tank pumped regularly.
  • Keep your septic tank cleanouts and manholes accessible for pumping and inspections.


  • Do not flush baby wipes, feminine hygiene products, paper towels, cigarette butts, diapers, or similar objects.
  • Do not dispose of grease or cooking oils down the drain.
  • Do not use septic tank additives.
  • Do not park vehicles or heavy objects over the underground tank and its drain field.
  • Above all else – DON’T wait for signs of failure. Check the septic system regularly.
