Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a septic system?

    A septic system is made of two parts. (1)The septic tank is an underground water-tight container, almost always constructed of concrete, and is built to receive sewage and retain the liquid portion for approximately 24 hours. (2) The tile absorption field (Drain Field) is the second and probably the most critical part of the septic system. It consists of a trench or system of trenches. Many alternative systems are now in place, not only gravel systems. We now have chamber systems, tire chips, Styrofoam and many more!

  • How do I know if I am on a septic system?

    Your local health department can help you with that. They have records that can tell you if repairs have been made to your septic tank and/or Drainfield. They may also help you locate your tank and Drainfield.

  • How often should I have my septic tank pumped out?

    The frequency of tank cleaning of pumping is hard to determine as it depends on many factors and varies with different families. The only sure way to determine the need for service is to open the tank periodically and inspect it to determine the accumulation of solids, but most homeowners will not do this when it is needed.

    A good rule of thumb would be to have the septic tank pumped out every 3 - 5 years. This should provide a margin of safety, but remember the most accurate way to determine the need for service is to inspect the tank contents on a yearly basis.

  • How do I know if I have a problem with my septic system?

    Watch out for the following:

    • Slow or congested drains
    • Excessively green grass
    • Wet areas or seepage
    • Strong or unusual odors
    • Dash List - Dummy Content

Do's & Don'ts

  • DO
    • Keep records of pump outs & repairs
    • Have your septic tank pumped every 3 to 5 years
    • Repair leaking faucets and toilets quickly to avoid putting too much water into your septic system.
    • Divert water away from septic systems- divert gutter downspouts
    • Stagger wash loads & avoid big wash days. Instead of having one big laundry day, wash one or two loads a day throughout the week. Also avoid operating a dishwasher and washing machine at the same time
    • Use only state certified, licensed and insured septic pumpers.
  • DON'T
    • Park or drive over system. Parking or driving on your septic tank or Drainfield can cause major problems in your system.
    • Build over your drainfield.
    • Plant over your drainfield.
    • Use septic tank additives. These additives rarely work.
    • Use a garbage disposal, unless your system has been designed for it. There are certain adjustments which must be made when a garbage disposal is included on a septic system.
    • Use system inappropriately. Avoid harsh cleaning chemicals such as bleach and… Also don't pour chemicals (i.e. paint, pesticides, harsh chemicals, etc.) or put other objects (i.e. feminine hygiene products, condoms, cotton swabs, etc.) down the drain. They can cause damage and stop up the drainfield.
