4. Be cautious of what you put down your drain, and have a certified operator inspect your septic system.

  • Most people don’t know the first thing about their septic tank. However, it is very important to keep it clean. It is not a good idea to flush things that could be thrown away or dump harmful chemicals down the drain. They will cause complications in your septic system. They may even destroy the helpful bacteria within. When septic systems fail that poorly treated household wastewater is released into the environment resulting in substantial health risks. It may even effect public drinking water.
