What Even Is a Septic Tank?

A septic tank is essentially an underground tank that collects water and waste which flow out of a home’s drain pipes. Inside the tank, liquid is separated from solid waste. That liquid is then sent into a drain field where it is transferred into the ground to be naturally filtered. The solid portion of the waste remains in the septic tank and eventually needs to be pumped out of the system (about every 3-5 years) by a septic services company so that the septic tank can continue to run smoothly.

5 Tips to Keep Your Septic System Running Smoothly for Years

1. Flush Wisely

While it can be tempting to just flush anything down the drain, the only two things that should be flushed down the toilet are bodily waste and toilet paper. Try not to treat your toilet like a liquid trash can; limit it to #1, #2, and toilet paper.

Items like diapers, facial tissues, hair, dental floss, and non-biodegradable wet wipes actually should NOT be flushed down the toilet. They can damage and clog the septic system over time. Send those items to the trash can instead of down the toilet and your septic system will thank you!

Takeaway: Only flush bodily waste and toilet paper down the toilet, nothing else.

2. Do Laundry on Multiple Days of the Week (Instead of Having One Laundry Day)

This tip might sound weird, since a weekly “laundry day” is so ingrained into our weekly habits, but doing laundry on multiple days of the week can actually be good for your septic tank.

The problem is that doing too many loads of laundry in a row can stress out your septic tank. You need to give the septic system enough time to properly treat the wastewater from all of those laundry cycles. Consider doing loads of laundry on Wednesday and Friday instead of just doing everything all on one day of the week. 

Takeaway: Try doing two full loads of laundry on different days of the week, rather than 3-4 partial loads of laundry on the same day.

3. Be Careful When Putting Food Down the Sink

If you are anything like I used to be, you probably never think twice about what you throw down the sink drain. I used to think that the garbage disposal was a miracle-worker and could handle anything! Sadly, this isn’t the case.

Of course we all have heard not to put oil or grease down the sink drain, but other more common foods can be a problem too. Food items like flour, bread dough, apple stickers, coffee grounds, egg shells, and avocado pits can clog your drains and do damage to your septic system.

Takeaway: Stick to only putting biodegradable foods down your sink, even if you have a garbage disposal.

4. Don't Overuse Household Cleaning Chemicals

Household cleaners, like bleach, can actually kill helpful bacteria that are needed for your septic tank to function properly. Even though you don’t realize it, bacteria and other microorganisms are working underground in your septic system to break down organic and inorganic material (source). If you kill those bacteria, it’s going to lead to problems.

This is why it’s important to put only natural food scraps down your garbage disposal, and to avoid using too much bleach in your laundry.

Takeaway: To preserve the good bacteria that your septic system needs to thrive, don’t use too much bleach in your laundry cycle, and avoid pouring harsh chemical cleaners down your sink drain.

5. Get Your Septic Tank Pumped Regularly

As a general rule, your septic tank should be pumped every three to five years. You already know who to call if you need septic tank pumping services – us!
