During the fall months, homeowners complete tasks around the house to prepare for winter. If you have a septic system, don’t forget to add this to your fall maintenance list. Here are our recommendations for fall septic system maintenance.
1. Switch Leach Lines in Your Distribution Box
Leach fields play an important role in your septic system. They make sure your wastewater is slowly drained from your septic tank, allowing it to be filtered into the soil. Keep them working properly by changing the elbow in your leach lines to give that part of your leach field time off. You can revert this back in the springtime.
2. Inspect Your Septic System
If you haven’t taken a thorough look at your system for some time, take a few minutes to check for any signs of wear and tear or malfunctioning. It’s always good to do a septic system checkup to make sure everything is working properly. If you think you need a full inspection by a professional, we’re here for you. Give us a call today.
3. Get Your Septic Tank Pumped
If it’s been a couple of years since you had your septic tank pumped, consider having this service completed in the fall. If you want a septic system that performs well and lasts, preventive maintenance is very important. It is much easier to pump a septic tank while temperatures are still mild. Book an appointment before the cold weather sets, freezing the ground and covering your system in snow.
4. Provide Protection For Your Septic System
Fall is the best time to establish some extra protection for your septic system before the harsh weather hits. Let the grass grow longer around your system and/or spread mulch to provide extra insulation against the freezing temperatures.
Using these tips will help your system stay strong as we head into winter.
