The 4 Things Necessary for the Best Residential Septic System

  1. Have your septic system regularly inspected and cleaned. This goes far beyond having a truck pull up and pump the septic system – regular inspections along with cleaning help to spot and solve any potential issues long before they become expensive problems.
  2. Be aware of your water usage and habits. Dishwashers and laundry are the two biggest culprits here. Doing a batch of laundry per day is far less demanding on your residential septic system than having a ‘laundry day’ of multiple batches all run in sequence. Running your dishwasher during off-peak hours will also lessen the spike in demand on your septic system, improving its efficiency and longevity.
  3. High-efficiency fixtures are your friend. Using less water means using your septic system more efficiently. Less wastewater per fixture or use means that the entire system now can handle greater loads.
  4. Aerobic septic systems make a huge difference. Aerobic septic systems can be added to some older septic systems, adding capacity to systems where the original specifications have changed or increased. These can significantly change the expected lifespan of a septic system, not to mention the waste released is more easily biodegradable.
