Septic Dos and Donts
Many people do not think about their septic system until it backs up or stops working. The Pumper would like to give some common sense rules about your septic system. Here are some comments and rules that will help your systems function properly. One of the keys is maintenance, which means regularly pumping your septic tank every 2-3 years.

Direct downspouts away from the tank and absorption field
Pump your tank every two to three years
Use grass and shallow-rooted plants to cover the field
Use household cleaners in moderation
Construct decks over the tank or absorption field
Dispose of diapers, sanitary products, coffee grounds, or paper towels down the drain
