Septic tanks require special care and ongoing maintenance to prevent damage and the development of environmentally hazardous conditions. If left untreated, necessary bacteria in the septic tank can stop working correctly and lead to a build-up of sludge. This sludge can cause a clog, which in turn can lead to every homeowners’ worst nightmare – the sewerage back-up.

Your septic system works by holding wastewater in a tank until the solid remains can settle at the tank’s bottom, which creates a layer of sludge. At this point, the lighter waste will float up, forming the scum layer. In between these layers is clarified water, which flows through an outlet pipe and is dispersed through a drain field. Helpful bacteria and enzymes in the septic tank break down waste and slow the development of the sludge layer. Maintain healthy levels of bacteria in your septic tank in the following ways:

Be aware of what you flush down the drain. Use septic-safe toilet paper and never flush anything large or harmful down the toilet. The only things that should be going into your septic system are human waste, toilet paper, and waste water.

Conserve water. Keeping an eye on your water consumption is a great way to take care of your septic tank, and your wallet! When large amounts of water are forced through your septic tank it can wash out helpful bacteria. Conserve water by taking shorter showers and shutting of the faucet while brushing teeth. You can also purchase low-flow faucets that reduce flow and conserve water.

Reduce solid waste. Try to cut down on your use of the garbage disposal. Instead, compost leftover food. Never pour grease or any other chemicals down the drain, as they may result in a clog or killing off of good bacteria.

Use a treatment system. These systems usually come in several forms, and are packed with good bacteria needed to keep the ecosystem of your septic tank in healthy condition.
