Be careful as to what you flush down your toilet or put down your drains. Feminine products, tissues and other non-degradable items should be properly disposed of int the garbage. To avoid septic tank and drainfield problems limit the use of garbage disposals. They add too many solids and stain the capacity of the system. NO grease should go down the drains. Grease is the biggest burden on the proper functioning of the septic system. Daily use of harsh home care products destroy biological activity in your septic system. Try to avoid these and use as many environmentally friendly home care products as possible.
