3 Ways to Properly Maintain a Septic System, Grayson, Kentucky

Although a septic system generally doesn’t require as much maintenance as other features of a property, it’s important for a homeowner to practice some basic habits. That's why the septic tank maintenance professionals at Prichard Septic Service, based in Grayson, KY, strive to make sure their clients are informed of the ways in which they can prolong the lifespan of their septic systems.

With over 40 years of experience providing superior septic tank cleaning and repair services, they know firsthand the difference proper septic care habits can make. For anyone looking to keep their septic system running smoothly and efficiently, they offer the following three tips:

  • Don’t Drain Cooking Oils: Cooking oils are already notorious for clogging drain pipes. As they cool, they harden, forming blockages. In a septic tank, they often harden on top of waste, preventing the system from functioning properly. Instead, set aside a special container for cooking oils and dispose of them in the garbage.
  • Grayson-KY-Septic-SystemDon’t Plant Near The System: Planting trees or other large plants near a septic system can be harmful, as the roots may grow too close to the drain pipes and clog them.
  • Don’t Flush Harsh Chemicals: Septic tanks work via microorganisms that process waste. When homeowners flush harsh chemicals and paints into the system, it can harm these microorganisms and interfere with their ability to break down waste.

For over four decades, Prichard Septic Service, in Grayson, KY, has provided quality service to clients throughout the area. To learn more about how to properly care for your septic system, visit them online, or call (606) 475-1491.
