DON’T use your toilet as a trash can by dumping non degradable (i.e. grease, “flushable” wipes, feminine products or anything plastic).
DON’T put toxic substances in your septic system such as paints, oils, acids or solvents. These substances do not break down and could contaminate drinking water supplies.
DON’T ever drive cars or heavy equipment over the septic system.
DON’T build over the septic field. This includes decks, driveways and above ground swimming pools.
DON’T install garbage disposals. They can cause premature septic system failures and require annual pumping of your septic tank.
