Septic System Operation

Septic System DOs and DON’Ts

DO learn the location of your septic tank and absorption area. Keep a sketch of it with your maintenance record handy for service visits.

DO have your septic tank cleaned regularly by a licensed contractor every 2-3 years.

DO keep your septic tank cover accessible for inspections and cleanings. Have risers installed if necessary.

DO call a professional whenever you experience problems with your septic system, or if there are any signs of system failure.

DO keep a detailed record of repairs, pumpings, inspections, permits issued, and other maintenance activities.
