Taking Care Of Your Frankfort Septic System

If you live in a rural or unincorporated Frankfort IL, area chances are you have a septic system. Taking care of your  septic system is not a difficult task. By following simple guidelines you should have a trouble free septic system.

Perform Regular Maintenance

Always remember, your Frankfort septic tank should be pumped out every 3-5 years if sized accordingly for proper maintenance. Sometimes additional pumping is needed to accommodate for parties or more than average usage.

Tips For Maintaining Your System

  • Keep Area Clear
  • Never build anything over a septic system including decks, pools, and landscaping.
  • Don’t Overload the Septic Tank and Drain field.
  • Check faucets and toilets for leaks; make repairs if necessary.
  • Reduce water levels for small loads of laundry.
  • Wait until the dishwasher is full to run it.
  • Do not use a garbage disposal. It adds up to 50 percent more solids to your septic tank, and your tank will require more
    frequent pump-outs.
  • Remember pump tank every 3-5 Years.
  • Avoid any additives and bacterial killing chemicals because they can cause more harm then good.
  • Don’t Pour Grease Down the Drain. Grease can clog pipes in your drain field, making it impossible for the soil to absorb liquids.
