Part of maintaining your septic system includes adding products that will help the tank do its job. For example, Bio-Tab is a great additive that will help liquefy the materials in the tank, help drains that are moving slow, and keep your system working properly.
Pump The Tank
Part of maintenance includes pumping out the septic tank from time to time. Typically tanks need to be pumped anywhere from two to five years. If you’re noticing drains moving slow or having trouble with flushing toilets, it may be time to consider a pump.
Reduce Water Waste
When your appliances are connected to the tank, you want to use water-conserving appliances to help reduce water waste. For example, low-flow toilets or faucets can cut back on the amount of water the tank must handle daily.
Watch What You Flush!
Good maintenance also includes ensuring not to flush items down the toilet that could cause blockages.
