Septic Maintenance Tips:
- Pumping your tanks every two years, we will clean or exchange your filter at this time
- Two (or more) tank system this illustration shows why:
The 2 tank system offers much more settling area than the 2 compartment tank. This will result in less filter cleaning, and possibly longer system life.
- If you need a mound, check that you are getting at least 12” of sand under the bed. Less than this makes it hard to “rebuild” the mound should it ever fail.
- Keep your septic tank covers a minimum of 4” above grade, this picture shows a cover at grade.
