Homes without access to a public sewage system typically use a septic system to treat wastewater. This video provides a brief overview of how to maintain your septic system and prevent major plumbing problems.

The main septic tank separates wastewater in three layers: bottom sludge, a middle layer of water, and floating scum. Over time, the scum and sludge layers can block the outlet pipe to the drain field or clog the effluent filter. That’s why it’s important to have your septic system inspected, pumped, and cleaned by a professional plumber at least once every three years.
