Natural Septic System Maintenance

There are some effective, simple solutions out there for natural septic system maintenance. Here are some suggestions to ensure peak performance, as well as dependability.

It’s important to maintain the biological health of your system. We recommend the use of a bio-stimulant nutrient, like Bio-Septic Boost, to enhance the natural occurring bacteria or to enhance a store-purchased bacteria. Bacteria does not reproduce on its own. Adding a bio-stimulant nutrient like Bio-Septic Boost will stimulate the reproductive growth of your septic system’s bacteria by millions-fold. This insures the biological health of your septic system. It is the key ingredient to natural septic system maintenance, which is essential for all homeowners.

We strongly recommend having you septic tank pumped every two years. While you’re at it, have your distribution box opened to pump out your field lines, as well. Be sure to add some Septic Drainer to your field lines, to be proactive in preventing future drain field failures. This preventative maintenance goes a long way, especially when it comes to saving thousands in repairs.

Septic Systems have an average year-round temperature of 55 degrees, which is why freezing is really only a remote possibility. It can happen, but only during an extreme cold temperature drop for an extended period of time. Large amounts of snow pack insulates the ground from a deep freeze, so you likely needn’t worry about this happening.

Then I’d like to offer a solution for when you suspect septic drain field failure.

Because without this quick tutorial, fixing your failing septic system, or any other septic problems, may be like trying to piece together a puzzle, without the picture on the box!

Once you understand exactly how septic systems work and what your septic system does, it’s easy to see why Septic Drainer works to fix septic drain field failure. (Need to remember where your tank is? Septi-Marker safely marks the locations of a septic system’s risers and distribution box. It’s safe for lawns and low enough for lawnmowers to go over without causing damage. Order your Septi-Marker here!)

Below are three different types of septic systems that treat household sewage. Septic Drainer may be used for septic drain field maintenance in any of these systems. That includes conventional septic, dry well septic and cesspools.

*Note: An easy way to find out what type of septic system you have is by contacting your septic professional or your local county department of records. Most municipalities keep records showing building plans for systems installed after the 1970s.
