With winter coming, it is a great time to think about your septic system’s health and the fall septic maintenance tasks you may want to consider. You may especially want to take care of anything tasks that involve accessing the septic system, before the snow comes and the ground freezes as winter arrives.

We always recommend pumping your system every two years. It is one of our key recommendations and is one thing that frequently goes ignored by homeowners. Adding the proper additives is also very important, too. Please understand, you have the biological health and the drain field soil health to be concerned with, and you need to “feed the ground” in order for the system to work as it should.

Remember, the EPA says 90% of septic failures happen in the drain field, which usually is a result of the soil failing. Adding Septic Drainer can rejuvenate your septic system and prevent costly soil failure. Make it a part of your fall septic maintenance routine and you will be glad in the long run.
