How to Tell if Your Septic System is Regulated by Your Town
For answers to most questions pertaining to local rules about your septic system, you can contact your Board of Health. It’s their job to keep your community safe from health hazards which are often caused by unsanitary conditions related to sewage and wastewater. Here are some things you can do to ensure your septic system is well maintained and meets regulations set forth by your town.
Install a Buildup for Your Cover
Since the cover of your septic tank is buried underground, it makes good sense to install a buildup or riser to raise it to a visible point above the ground. This saves lots of time and effort when it’s time to service your septic system.
Install a Septic Filter
Your leach field is a complicated network of pipes that needs to be protected from debris and solid waste. Adding a filter to your septic’s outlet is a great way to prevent unwanted matter from entering your drain field and discouraging clogs.
Pump On a Regular Basis
To avoid septic overflow, clogs and damage to your system, have your tank pumped routinely. Our recommendation is every 2-5 years, but our experienced technicians can provide an ideal schedule for your home.
