Taking Care of Your Septic System

Taking proper care of your Septic System is vital in preventing costly repairs down the road.  Your system has been designed specifically for your home.  Day to day management is essential to keep your Septic System functioning properly to do the job it was designed to do, and save you from a financial headache down the road.

How Does it Work?

Septic tanks contain bacteria that grow best in oxygen-poor conditions.  These bacteria carry out a portion of the treatment process by converting most solids into liquids and gases.  Bacteria that require oxygen thrive in the drainfield and complete the treatment process begun in the septic tank.  If the septic tank is working well, the wastewater which flows out of the tank is relatively clear, although it still has an odor and may carry disease organisms.  It should flow only into the drainfield.  Never onto the grounds surface or into Florida waters.
