Home Septic System Basics

First of all, you may be wondering how to know if your property is equipped with an Individual Septic System. If you answer YES to the following questions then your home should have its own Sewage Waste Treatment System. It is used to collect, treat and disperse wastewater that comes from a home’s plumbing system, including Kitchens, Bathrooms and Laundry.

  1. Do you use Well Water?
  1. Your home does NOT have a Water Meter?
  1. You do NOT receive a Water & Sewer Bill from your city?
  1. Do your Neighbors use a septic system?


Keeping Septic Systems Healthy

Taking the necessary steps to Properly Maintain a Septic System can result in significant savings. Regular Maintenance is meant to Save Money, Protect Property Values and Keep People Healthy.

  1. Save Money by spending an average of $250 to $300 each year on septic system care as opposed to spending as much as $3000 to $7000 on repairs or premature system replacement.
  1. Protect Property Values by mitigating legal liabilities of a septic system malfunction and having a sewage system that is health code compliant.
  1. Keep People Healthy by making sure that wastewater is sufficiently treated before being allowed back into the water supply. Untreated sewage can spread disease and pollute the environment.
