Avoiding common septic system mistakes could help you keep your system running strong.
When your septic system is in good shape, you don’t have to think twice about it, which is pretty nice, considering the alternative. Septic system problems are never fun to deal with, and you could be making mistakes that could be causing problems without even realizing it. We went over some of the most common septic system mistakes that people make in our last blog. Today, we’ll be finishing up this blog series with these last two septic system mistakes:
Mistake #5. You maintain your septic tank with chemical additives.
Many septic cleaners and drain cleaners claim that they are able to break down solids and clogs effectively, and while that may be true, they often cause more harm than good. Not only can these cleaners eat away at your pipes, they can also kill the bacteria responsible for breaking down solids in your septic system. You’re much better off using all natural septic cleaners, like the Septic Genie. It’s also a good idea to stop using chemical cleaners when you clean your toilets, sinks and other plumbing fixtures.
Mistake #6. You don’t get your septic system inspected.
Many septic system problems are not obvious to the average homeowner, and it’s much easier and cheaper to fix a small problem than it is to fix a big problem. When you get your septic system inspected, you are alerted to small problems before they turn into big problems.
Avoiding these common mistakes will go a long way in taking great care of your septic system, but when you need a little extra help, rely on Septic Genie. Contact us today to find out if Septic Genie is right for your system.
