Prepare Your Septic System for the Upcoming Winter

           Septic Preservation Services Septic Preservation Services like many of our customers is looking forward to a mild winter. Winters that are very cold with lots of snow can stress your septic system. The cold temperatures can freeze pipes and make access to your septic system very difficult if the ground is frozen. To avoid issues, your septic tank and pump chamber covers should be at grade and not buried. You should also service your septic tank by having your septic tank pumped and cleaned before the first frost. Snow is fun to play in but not so fun to work in. It can greatly complicate any septic service, septic pumping, or septic repairs. Additionally when it melts, it can flood your septic tank or leach field. Thought should be given when landscaping and snowplowing to locate snow away from your septic tank and leach field. Melting snow should also be diverted away from your septic system.

Please call us with any of your winter septic questions or issues and we are glad to help.  You can reach us at 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

Gardens and Septic Systems

gardensCountry living is a great  lifestyle for many people. While planning gardens and orchards, there are certain things you need to keep in mind.   For example, most country homes require a septic system for disposal of sewage. While septic systems are fairly efficient, the leach field is an essential element in processing and dispersing the waste water. Because of the possibility of bacteria in the soil, only grass, shallow-rooted flowers, bulbs and meadow grasses are planted directly over the septic system. You should never plant fruits or vegetables on or near a leach field.

How do you locate the septic system?   A  septic plot plan  is always  filed with the local Board of Health in Massachusetts, DEM in Rhode Island, New Hampshire DES, and Plumbing Code Enforcement in Maine.   Visit your appropriate agency  to obtain a copy of your septic system.  Measure and mark the perimeter with landscaper’s spray paint. While new construction requires a plot plan, older homes may not have any documents available to indicate the location of the septic tank and leach lines.

2

Locate the sewer lines leading away from the house. There may be a clean-out, risers or manhole cover indicating the location of the septic tank. Generally, the septic tank is located approximately 10 to 15 feet away from from the house.

3

Probe with a metal rod, pushing it gently into the ground to locate the gravel drain field. The leach lines usually are 6 to 18 inches below the surface of the soil. Work your way out and away from the house. As you find the perimeter of the drain field, mark it with landscaper’s spray paint.

4

Measure 10 feet from the outer perimeter of the leach field. Mark the garden’s borders with stakes.    Fruits and vegetables should be planted at least 10 feet from a septic system or leach field to avoid bacterial contamination.

5

Prepare a landscape plan before planting shrubs or trees near a leach field. Non-aggressive shrubs and trees should be planted at a distance equal to the mature height of the plant. Trees with aggressive roots, such as a willow tree, should be planted at least 50 feet from a leach field.

All Clear Septic

What NOT to Allow in Your Septic System

septic maintenanceThe best way to avoid problems with your septic system is to know what NOT to put in it. Most people know that you shouldn’t flush any non-biodegradable materials, but there are a lot of everyday things that we all use that also should not find their way into your system.

F.O.G.s

An easy way to remember the first batch of things that you should avoid putting down your drains:

  • F = FATS
  • O = OILS
  • G = GREASE

If you can avoid putting fats, oils and grease down your drains, your septic system will need a lot less cleaning and pumping. Commercial businesses are required to add a grease trap to food preparation areas to separate this type of wastewater from their on-site septic system, but homeowners should take heed to keep this gunk out of their systems as well.

One way to keep F.O.G.s out of your system is to pour any residual fats, oils or grease from cooking into an old coffee can for disposal instead of rinsing it down the kitchen sink. Oils, which can include body oils, hair oils, baby oil and other non-cooking items, should also be avoided whenever possible and not rinsed directly into the drain. Some hair conditioners and body lotions also fall under this category, so learn to be a label reader and look for products that are septic-friendly.

Chemicals

We use a lot of chemicals each and every day and don’t even realize it. Ammonia in the window cleaner, bleach in surface cleaners, disinfectants for the toilets.    A lot of these household chemicals eventually make their way into your septic system where they can wreak havoc on the natural balance of bacteria and filtration, eventually leading to septic failure.

While it is important to keep your home clean and germ-free, make sure to choose all-natural, chemical-free solutions whenever possible and use toilet bowl cleaners sparingly according to the guidelines on the product labels. Choose laundry soap, stain removers, dish washing liquid, dishwasher soap and other products that go directly into the drain carefully. Look for non-toxic options that are made safe for septic use and follow the directions for usage.

Septic Tank Additives

There are a lot of products available on the commercial market that claim to be safe for use in septic systems. These additives are supposed to help keep your septic system running clean and clear, but can actually damage your system in the long run. Stick to a responsible preventative maintenance and cleaning program, learn about proper care for your septic system and apply all that you have learned to your daily activities, and you’ll never need to add tank additives.

Toilet Trash Can

A lot of people use their toilet as a trash can, flushing things that really have no business being in the toilet, drain or septic system. We’ve already discussed oils, grease, chemicals and additives in your drains, but when it comes to the toilet, some people seem to lose all common sense. Non-biodegradable materials can actually kill off the beneficial bacteria that is used to treat your wastewater. Plastics, disposable diapers, feminine hygiene products, condoms, cat litter, pet food, and pet waste are some of these items.

Poisonous Materials

If you have any leftover household chemicals from a renovation project, make sure to dispose of them responsibly. Don’t pour them down the drain and don’t just throw them in the trash can. Check with your local hazardous waste collection center for information on the proper disposal of paint, paint thinner, solvents and other toxic chemicals that can be dangerous for your septic system as well as the local landfill. Other poisonous, toxic materials that should never make their way down household or garage drains include antifreeze, pesticides, oil and gasoline.

Knowledge is Power

The more you know about septic systems and how they work, the easier it is to properly maintain and care for yours. Preventative Maintenance Programs, such as the one offered by Septic Preservation Services can help you to save thousands of dollars on costly repairs by keeping your system clean and running smoothly.
