Caring for your septic system will help extend its life and avoid problems later on, so it’s a good idea to be aware of how you can ensure that your household habits promote a well-functioning system. One of the most important things to understand is that the volume of water and waste that goes into your system affects its efficiency. Keeping water usage down and using only septic-safe products is a great way to avoid many septic problems.

In this video, you can learn about ways to dispose of items that would otherwise harm your septic system if you put them down the drain. Choose to maximize the efficiency of your appliances, such as by doing full loads of dishes and laundry. You can also avoid overloading your system with large quantities of water at a single time.
