DO - KEEP TREES AWAY FROM THE SEPTIC SYSTEM
There are trees that have roots that grow and extend aggressively. They should be kept far from the septic system to avoid any damage.
DO - PERFORM REGULAR MAINTENANCE.
Make sure your septic tank is maintained every one to three years by a professional.
DON'T - DEPOSIT MATERIALS WHICH WON'T DECOMPOSE INTO THE HOUSE SEWER.
This includes cooking fats, paper towels that don't dissolve fast, facial tissues, disposable napkins, and diapers. These will fill your tank and once they do, the system will be plugged.
DON'T - USE HOUSEHOLD CHEMICALS EXCESSIVELY.
There's nothing wrong with using bleaches, drain cleaners, and household detergents as long as you don't utilize them in excessive amounts.
DON'T - DRIVE OVER THE DRAINFIELD.
It's a must that no one can drive on the land over where the drain field is installed, as doing so will cause damage over time.
