7 Tips to Ensure Your Septic Tank Functions Efficiently, Nancy, Kentucky

To ensure your septic tank functions efficiently, you must take care to protect it from damage. The professionals at Wilson & Roy Construction in Nancy, KY, have provided reliable septic tank installation for over 50 years, and they understand how routine maintenance and awareness will prevent problems with your septic system.

7 Practices For Septic Tank Efficiency

Protect The Tank

Avoid putting anything heavy in the area of your yard where the septic tank is installed. This will prevent pipe damage that can ruin the effectiveness of the drain field.

Be Careful What You Flush

Don’t put nonbiodegradable products through your plumbing. Items like feminine hygiene products, cigarette butts, and paint or automobile fluids should be disposed of by other methods.

Don’t Attach A Garbage Disposal

A garbage disposal is convenient for household use but could strain your septic tank if it malfunctions. If it clogs the drain, you’ll waste more water.

Conserve Water

Use Septic-Safe Products

Purchase environmentally friendly cleaning solutions and septic-safe toilet paper that will break down more easily in your tank than conventional products.

Maintain Your Tank

Keep the area around your tank free of shrubs and trees. The roots of these plants can reach your septic system pipes and cause damage.

Clean The Tank

Hire a specialist to pump and clean your septic tank every 1-5 years, depending on the size of your tank and number of people in your household.
