3 Tips to Keep Your Septic System Working

Your septic system is a vital part of your home. For the most part, homeowners don’t think about (or don’t want to think about) how their septic tank is working. But if there’s a problem with it, you’ll know it. Here at Carter Quality Plumbing, we’ll be glad to come to your Lancaster or Rock Hill area home for septic tank pumping—but we don’t want you to need this service more than is absolutely necessary. Follow these simple steps to keep your septic system working as it should.

  1. Keep an eye out for roots. If you have trees or shrubs planted anywhere near your septic system, be aware that the roots may grow in to and clog the line. If you’re having a new septic tank installed, you may want to think about removing any trees or shrubs that could interfere.
  2. Watch for leaks. You know plumbing leaks are bad. But when you have a septic system, leaks can cause undue stress. Watch out for leaks and get them repaired as quickly as possible.
  3. Use common sense. Remember all those things your mother used to tell you about what not to put down the garbage disposal or toilet? The same rules apply once you’re an adult. Don’t flush things like cigarettes or diapers, don’t put cooking grease down the drain, and only run the dishwasher or washing machine when they’re full.
