What Is Home Warranty


Get to know your septic ๐Ÿšฝ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿšฐ and save ๐Ÿ’ฐ

Just FYI: a septic system is a type of home wastewater system. Unlike a regular sewer system, septic systems are self-contained and do not feed into a larger sewer network. Our experts have put together a list of steps and reminders to take good care of your septic system, ensuring its longevity and optimal performance, saving you from expensive repairs. Trust us, this is not something youโ€™ll want to neglect.

Regular Pumping This is Septic Care 101. Over time, solid waste accumulates in the septic tank, leading to potential clogs, system failure and a backup in the plumbing system in the house. Think flooding, overflowing toilets. Experts recommend pumping your septic tank every couple years, depending on household size and water usage.

Conserve conserve conserve water Excessive water usage can overload and put unnecessary strain on your septic system. Water conservation practices benefit all, especially your septic system โ€” fixing leaks promptly, using high-efficiency appliances, and spreading laundry loads throughout the week as opposed to having a single laundry day.

Proper Waste Disposal Be mindful of what you flush down the drains and toilets. Avoid disposing of non-biodegradable items, grease, oils, feminine hygiene products, and chemicals. These substances disrupt the natural balance of the septic system.

Protect the Drainfield The drainfield (aka the โ€œfieldsโ€) plays a crucial role in the septic system, allowing water from the house to be discharged and absorbed into the soil. Protect this area by avoiding heavy traffic, construction, or planting trees and shrubs near the drainfield.

Keep Records Maintain a detailed record of septic system inspections, pumping schedules, and any repairs conducted. This documentation helps both homeowners and professionals track the system’s history, identify potential issues early, and ensure timely maintenance.ย
