Do I need to add anything to my septic system to keep it working properly ?

While many products on the market claim to help septic systems work better, the truth is there is no magic potion to cure an ailing system. In fact, most engineers and sanitation professionals believe that commercial septic system
additives are, at best, useless, and at worst, potentially harmful to a system. There are two types of septic system additives: biological (like bacteria, enzymes, and yeast) and chemical. Most biological additives are harmless, but some chemical additives can potentially harm the soil in the drain field and contaminate the groundwater. While there hasn’t been extensive study on the effectiveness of these products, the general consensus among septic system experts is that septic system additives are unnecessary.

Out of sight and out of mind—
Does this describe your relationship with your septic system? If you are like most homeowners, you probably never give much thought to what happens to what goes down your drain. But if you rely on a septic system to treat and dispose of your household wastewater, what you don’t know can hurt you. Proper operation and
maintenance of your septic system can have a significant impact on how well it works and how long it lasts.

Part of maintaining your septic system is watching what you put into it, toilet paper included! So what is the best toilet paper for a septic system? Toilet paper labeled, as Septic safe is always best to use. These toilet papers are designed to dissolve quickly. You can test your toilet paper by soaking it in water for 30 minutes to see how much it breaks down. The more it breaks down the better!

Flushing excessive amounts of toilet paper at one time can be a major contributor to problems and Clogs. Only flash small amounts of toilet paper at one time, and research the type of toilet paper you use.

The cost to pump your septic tank is minimal in comparison to the cost of replacing a failed septic system. So get you septic system serviced right by a true professional Mr. Septic Inc.

If you don't like the idea of spending a few hundred dollars to keep your septic tank clean, consider the alternative. If you fail to properly clean and maintain your septic tank, it cause parts to fail or break, which will require even more money, especially if you need to replace the system completely.

Another reason maintaining your septic tank is worth the cost is because it affects the value of your home. If you neglect your septic tank, it can cause the value of your home to decrease, which will become a problem when it's time to sell. To entice buyers, you may have to end up replacing neglected septic system.

Keeping your septic tank cleaned is an important responsibility.

If your septic system does become too full and starts to overflow, it can become dangerous to the health of you and your family and even you community. If your home uses well water, the sewage can seep into your family's drinking water, causing severe sickness.
Even if you don't have a well, you shouldn't let your septic tank overflow. The sewage could seep into groundwater or other surface water sources, such as a lake. If the sewage reaches these bodies of water, this can actually affect the health of your entire community, especially if the community relies on the water for drinking or fun.
Keeping your septic tank cleaned is an important responsibility. Not only will it prevent problems, such as odours and backups, but it will allow you to keep drinking and groundwater safe.

Don't wait until something goes wrong with your septic tank.

Don't wait until something goes wrong with your septic tank before you get it cleaned. Just because you aren't having septic system issues now, doesn't mean your septic tank doesn’t need to be cleaned and maintained. Cleaning your septic tank should be done on a regular basis to prevent septic system failure and overflows.

​Prevents Sewage from Overflowing into Your Yard.

One of the biggest reasons to routinely clean and maintain your septic tank is to prevent it from overflowing. When the system gets too full, the tank can no longer hold the contents, but they have to go somewhere, so they seep out into your yard.
There are several problems that occur when the septic tank overflows into your yard. For starters, you'll probably notice a foul smell above the septic tank and around the drain field. If enough liquid has escaped, you may also notice pooling water on your yard above the tank. The grass around the septic tank may also be lush and green, while the rest of your grass is dull. Inside your house, you may notice sewage backup and slow drains.
