Septic Pumping In Arlington
July 8, 2015
Superior Septic can extend the life of your septic tank system with septic pumping in Arlington. But they would also like to remind septic tank owners that there are a lot of other ways to keep their home septic system running well.
Good septic tank maintenance begins with being careful about what you put down your toilet and your drains. The only thing that should be flushed down the toilet is human waste and toilet paper. Even facial tissues take longer to dissolve and have the possibility of clogging up your drains. Kitchen waste needs to be disposed of in a garbage or trash can – not fed to your drain system. Although garbage disposals might seem like time saving devices that can make vegetable peelings and other items go away quickly, they actually add a lot of vegetable matter to your septic tank. This added solid waste makes it difficult for your tank to work the way it is supposed to. Avoid pouring grease or cooking oil down the drain. Instead, pour the oil into a can, let it cool, and put it out with the rest of your trash. Diapers, diaper liners and feminine products – even if the label says “flushable”—need to go out in the trash. Get regular inspections to make sure the interior baffles, the lid, and all exterior parts of the septic tank are secure and are not leaking.
