Do you have a septic system for your waste? They are pretty common, and the way they are made haven’t changed that much over the years, but many homeowners don’t know much about how it works. It is important though, that you are aware of where the system is located and some basics of its functionality. Why is that? Well, a septic system is a vital part of your home, and it costs quite a lot to replace, so you should do your best to keep it in good repair.
The tank should be pumped about once every five years, but that can vary according to the size of your family. You should also have it inspected every three years to make sure it will continue functioning properly. You should be careful with what you flush down the toilet since there are some chemicals that can kill the essential bacteria that break down the material in the tank. Make sure you don’t park or drive any vehicles on top of the tank since this could damage it and cause it to fail.
