Top 3 Tips for Septic Maintenance from NC’s Septic Tank Repair Experts, Archdale, North Carolina

As a homeowner, your septic tank is one of the last things you want to malfunction. While they aren’t hard to take care of, proper septic maintenance is a must for your system to last the test of time, minimize repairs, and remain eco-friendly.

Queen’s Septic Tank Service is High Point, NC’s most trusted team for septic tank installation, repair, and maintenance. With their tips for taking care of your septic system, you can avoid expensive problems and keep your system environmentally friendly:

  • Annual Inspections: A yearly inspection from a septic tank expert is a must to ensure your system is working properly. A professional examination allows you to catch problems early, preventing you from having to replace your entire septic system. They also help protect against spills, backups, and tank ruptures.
  • septic maintenanceWatch What You Flush: Flushing the wrong items down your toilet or drains damages your septic system. As a general rule for septic maintenance, your best bet is to restrict what you flush to the basics: human waste and toilet paper. Paper towels, cigarette butts, rags, tampons, foods, chemicals, and solvents are not septic safe. If in doubt, don’t flush it — throw it in the garbage!
  • Mind the Pump: The pump is a critical part of your septic system. Check it regularly for corrosion and worn-out parts. If the power goes out and your pump doesn’t run for six to 10 hours (or longer), take steps to keep the plumbing from backing up. Run your pump for a couple of minutes at a time, and then turn it off again to allow it to clear the excess material without being overworked. Having a septic tank company install a filter also helps your pump work more effectively.
