Septic System Toilet

Toilets are the leading cause of household water leaks. Since all water from the toilet goes directly into the septic system, saving water used by toilets reduces both consumption and wastewater flows.

Hydraulic overload is the single most common cause of on-site wastewater treatment failure. Surface ponding and backup can often be eliminated by retrofitting with efficient toilets and shower heads.

Never flush cat litter, disposable diapers, sanitary napkins, tampons, paper towels, facial tissues, coffee grounds or cigarette butts down the toilet. They will fill and clog your septic tank.
