Our Thoughts on Septic Systems

Septic systems are commonly used in the West Texas areas not serviced by municipal sewage systems. When properly installed and maintained, septic systems can offer years of carefree service. While they are relatively maintenance free, the use of such systems does require some service by the home owner.

The tank should be inspected for blockage whenever a sewer stoppage occurs, and routinely about once a year. It is also recommended that the tank be pumped and cleaned about once every three years. The risk of blockage can be reduced by using toilet paper marked “septic safe”, and by never flushing facial tissue, feminine hygiene products, paper towels and other paper products which do not easily decompose.

Many customers use garbage disposal with septic systems, but this can contribute to more frequent stoppage. Products that should never be introduced to the system include coffee grounds, dental floss, grease, paint products and harsh chemicals.
