Taking Care Of Your Homer Glen Septic System

Tips For Maintaining Your System

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

Perform Regular Maintenance

Always remember your Homer Glen 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.

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.

Avoid Chemicals

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.
