To help ensure that your septic system is running properly and safely, One Way Septic Service is here to provide the do’s and don’ts for septic system care.

The Sink Is Not Your Dumping Grounds

We all have a bad habit of dumping random food waste into the sink disposable. But there are certain products that would require septic tank service if we all continue to dispose of them through the sink.

Don’t: Pour cooking grease, oil, household chemicals, and coffee grounds down the sink

Do: Limit the use of the garbage disposal, properly dispose of food in the trash

Think Before You Flush

Toilets may seem invincible when it comes to the many objects you can flush, but it has it’s limitations. Even the best septic tank treatment will have a hard time unclogging products if habits are not improved.

Don’t: flush non-degradable products such as feminine hygiene products, condoms, dental floss, and paper towel

Do: Dispose of these products in the trash

Don’t Overwork Your Drain

Although everyone is working towards becoming more water efficient, there are still times when we are using water in multiple areas of our homes at the same time.

Don’t: Using water for a washing machine, shower, dishwasher, and toilet can put a lot of strain on your septic system. This can eventually require septic tank service if it becomes a consistent habit.

Do: Continue to work towards better water efficiency and stagger the use of different appliances.
