    General Inspections 

    Without a doubt, the most important maintenance tactic you can apply is inspection. There are various issues that can affect your septic system and the more you are aware of these, the easier it will be to maintain them. For example, you want to make sure that your water levels remain at a safe level, you want to be certain that no cracks or damages are appearing, and you must guarantee that your leach field remains safe and sanitary at all times. Luckily, you can trust us to take care of this for you whenever we inspect your system, thanks to our meticulous and comprehensive methods. 

    Bacterial Additives 

    A great piece of long-term maintenance you can apply to your wastewater is bacterial treatment. In order for any system to operate, wastewater needs to be returned to the environment without any contamination. But for this to be the case, bacteria in your leach field must take care of the job quickly and effectively. So, if they suffer any weaknesses over time, it has the potential to cause serious concern. That is why it is always worth applying additional bacterial additives to stabilize the water.

    Water Filter Checks 

    Moreover, you want to make sure that solids are not able to overrun the collected wastewater and be left to cause blockages in the pipework. Water filters prevent this from happening by breaking down heavier solids before they enter the system. However, if the filter is clogged itself or damaged in some way, this cannot be the case. So, some of the best maintenance practices you can choose is checking, cleaning, or replacing your water filter. Fortunately, we are happy to help you with this and will ensure that yours is always left to do its job. 

    Better Household Habits 

    But above all else, the maintenance techniques that we most recommend to our clients are choosing better household habits. When you are using your water-based appliances, make sure that you are mindful of your septic tank. You want to avoid draining excess greases, fats, solids, and food scraps, as well as overpowering chemicals that could kill off the necessary bacteria. In doing these sorts of things, you guarantee better health for your system and greatly improved longevity.
