We often hear misconceptions regarding Orlando septic pumping that aren’t exactly true. We’re debunking three of these misconceptions below.
“You Can Put Anything Down The Toilet As Long As It’ll Flush”
Although this sounds like it could technically be true, your septic system would disagree. Flushing whatever you want down the toilet or the drain can, and will, cause problems with your septic tank. Drain cleaners and disinfectants have a tendency to eliminate the microbes that help the sewage to digest, resulting in an increased chance of system failure. Plus, flushing anything other than toilet paper and sewage down the toilet could cause your system to need Orlando septic pumping.

“Orlando Septic Pumping Is Usually Unnecessary”
In actuality, it would be in your septic tank’s best interest to invest in pump-outs every two to three years in order to maximize the life of your system. This is the most economically friendly way to ensure your system is in good shape in the near future.
The common misconception that Orlando septic pumping is unnecessary usually comes from companies that sell septic additives. Their goal is for you to buy their products to help break down materials, however, they can’t break down all damaging materials that may be a threat to your septic tank’s health. Moral of the story: Pump-outs are your friend!
