Septic Tank Field

People with septic systems should not do all the laundry on one day nor should they discharge large quantities of water from hot tubs, etc. to the system.

Garbage disposal use should be minimized. It does not need to be eliminated but the more the garbage disposal is used, the more often the tank will need to be pumped.

It is important to build an awareness among septic system users that their system has a finite capacity for both flow and solids that must be respected. If the limitations of the system are understood and taken into account as people develop their living habits, septic systems can provide reliable service for a very long time.
