  1. Proper Septic Tank Maintenance Image Source:http://www.motherearthnews.com/green-homes/home-design/tips-for-septic-system-maintenance-zw0z1301zmcc.aspx A septic system is your very own onsite sewage management facility. It is mainly used where access to a municipal sewer system is not available nor economically practical. A septic system is hidden and must be odorless (when appropriately maintained). A septic system is practically maintenance-free. A well-designed and properly maintained tank could last indefinitely. However, the leach field (the underground area where all of the sewage drain pipes are placed) will most likely need some treatment or perhaps replacement after about 15 to 20 years of service. Following this few simple rules like by not consuming too much water and not dropping just any materials in the septic tank that bacteria can’t decompose should help to make a septic system worry-free for many years. But don’t forget that the septic tank does need to be cleaned out when too many solids build-up. Here are the following recommendations to keep in mind: • Too much water can troubled the sensitive biological balance within the tank, thus beating its ability to work wonders. Moreover, discharging more water into the system than it can handle can cause it to back up not a wanted event. •Don’t use too much amounts of any household chemicals. You can use normal amounts of household detergents, bleaches, drain cleaners, and other household chemicals without preventing the bacterial action in the septic tank. For example, don’t dump cleaning water for latex paintbrushes and cans into the house sewer.

  2. •Don’t flush coffee grounds, cooking fats, wet-strength towels (paper towels that don’t dissolve easily, like the heavy-duty kind), disposable diapers, facial tissues, cigarette butts, and other non- biodegradable materials into the house sewer. These materials won’t putrefy and will fill the septic tank and will plug the system. • Avoid throwing away grease down the drain. It may plug sewer pipes or build up in the septic tank and plug the inlet. Keep a distinct container for waste grease and throw it out with the garbage.
