Maintaining Your Septic System

Some larger, lesser used systems will not need emptying for years. Others will require multiple pump-outs per year. The frequency depends on the capacity of your tank, the type of liquid waste that goes through it, and the age and quality of the system.

It is possible to lengthen the lifespan of any septic system by sticking to a few guidelines; however, a full inspection beforehand gives you a benchmark from which to compare.

  • Heavy rain can enter your septic system and fill it up. Keep the lid clear of debris and repair any damage or cracks
  • Use enzymes to digest grease and other solid waste that enters the system
  • Never pour harsh chemicals into the tank – these kill off the bacteria responsible for digesting waste and keeping your tank odour-free
  • Inspect the site at least annually, checking for signs of seepage into the surrounding ground
  • Use signage to ask visitors not to throw hygiene items down the toilet and supply biodegradable toilet paper and handtowels
