The Easy Way to Remember to Schedule Preventative Drain Maintenance

Remembering to have your septic system cleaned regularly is often a task even the most responsible homeowners forget.

Have You Had Septic Drain Service Lately?

We understand: your septic tank is buried underground—out of sight and often out of mind. However, it is essential to remember that a septic tank is a piece of equipment that requires preventative drain maintenance. You cannot simply treat this task like dirt to be swept under a rug and forgotten about. 

If you ignore it for too long, you will be dealing with a messy (and likely costly) situation, like sewage backing up into your shower drains and the kitchen sink or flooding in your basement or drain field. 

Suppose the wastewater from your kitchen and bathroom sink is not flowing correctly. In that case, it could overflow, or worse, back up into your home or yard, causing “dirty water” contamination, strong odors, and damage to your property. Biros Septic & Drain Cleaning provides preventative maintenance services to ensure that your septic system is working correctly.

PREVENTATIVE DRAIN MAINTENANCE TIPS TO KEEP YOUR SEPTIC SYSTEM RUNNING SMOOTHLY

Regular preventative drain maintenance appointments are the first step to ensure that your septic system runs properly. However, as the homeowner, you have more control over keeping your septic lines free of clogs and operating as they should than your septic service contractor.

Keep in mind that everything you wash down your toilets or put down the kitchen drain ends up in your septic tank. If you’re flushing things other than toilet paper and human waste, you’re likely going to have issues with your septic system.

Follow these tips to avoid septic emergencies in between your preventative drain maintenance appointments:

  1. Find the septic system and all its components. If you cannot find it, contact a certified septic inspector.
  2. You need to have a riser installed if your pump access cover is below 12 inches of grade.
  3. Keep trees, bushes, and plant life trimmed around your drainage areas.
  4. Have your septic system pumped every three years by a certified pumper.
  5. Have your cesspool pumped every one or two years.
  6. Keep track of your pumping and maintenance records.
  7. Install an effluent filter in your septic tank to protect it.
  1. Examine your drain field to check for odors, muddy areas, and other conditions.
  2. Save water by upgrading your fixtures and appliances.
  3. Only do laundry with full loads.
  4. Make sure that your washing machine has a lint filter and that it is kept clean regularly.
  5. Use bio-degradable products in your home.
  6. Avoid pouring grease or coffee grounds down your kitchen drain
  7. Don’t use chemical drain cleaners to unclog sink drains or garbage disposals. Instead, use hot, boiling water or a drain snake.
