Septic Tank Problems

Snowden Onsite Services, Inc. maintains an inventory of common parts for all units. Our service personnel have received extensive training, and are available to help you.

WASHING MACHINES are responsible for large volumes of water entering the system all at once. This
surge of water can hydraulically overload the unit and interfere with the smooth operation of the system. Space washings throughout the week rather than doing several loads in one day.

COOKING OILS AND GREASE are troublemakers. The type of bacteria found in aerobic systems do
not live well in solidified grease. GREASE AND COOKING FATS SHOULD NEVER BE PLACED DOWN ANY DRAINS.

Under no circumstances should you put any of the following products down the sink, toilets or drains as
they will significantly affect the efficiency of your sewage plant: medicines, cooking oil or melted fat,
motor oils or other car products, garden chemicals, paints, paint thinners and other solvents.

Please read the owners manual and the conditions of the warranty. Your aerobic system is a biological
treatment system designed to achieve a high degree of treatment of domestic sewage. Providing routine
maintenance and following the recommendations of the owner's manual and your distributor will help insure optimum performance as well eliminate the cost of unnecessary service calls.
