Good practices for a healthy septic system
- Spread out laundry over several days. Doing all of your laundry on one day can put more water into the system than it can treat.
- Use only biodegradeable soaps and cleaning agents.
- Spend less time in the shower with the water running. Long showers can attribute to excess water usage.
- If your system has a splitter (diverter) box, make the adjustment to alternate the usage of your leach lines once yearly.
