Your Septic System
Did you know that as a homeowner you are responsible for maintaining your septic system? Did you know that maintaining your septic system protects your investment in your home? Did you know that you should periodically inspect your system and pump out your septic tank?

If your septic system is not maintained, you may have to replace it costing you thousands of dollars. A malfunctioning system can contaminate groundwater that might be a source of drinking water.
Tip: If you sell your home, your septic system must be in good working order.
The septic tank is a buried, watertight container typically made of concrete, fiberglass, or polyethylene. It holds the wastewater long enough to allow solids to settle out (forming sludge) and oil and grease to float to the surface (as scum). It also allows partial decomposition of the solid materials. Compartments and a T-shaped outlet in the septic tank prevent the sludge and scum from leaving the tank and traveling into the drainfield area. Filters are also recommended to keep solids from entering the drainfield. Newer tanks generally have risers with lids at the ground surface to allow for easy location, inspection, and pumping of the tank.
The wastewater exits the septic tank and is discharged into the drainfield for further treatment by the soil. If the drainfield is overloaded with too much liquid, it will flood, causing sewage to flow to the ground surface or create backups in plumbing fixtures. A drainfield generally does not require any maintenance. However, to protect and prolong the life of the drainfield, follow these rules:
