Oviedo septic tank pumping is the kickstart you’ve been waiting for.

Your Septic System: What You Need To Know

One out of every five homes in the United States is equipped with septic systems. If your property is located outside of the area that the local sewer systems service, then you would rely on a septic system to dispose of your wastewater.

The installation of a septic system is closely regulated by state and local environmental agencies, and it’s important that your system is maintained. A septic system that isn’t properly cared for can be hazardous to the health of your family and to the environment. It can also result in costly repairs.

Not only is Oviedo septic tank pumping critical to extending the life of your septic system, it’s easy to do! Scheduling your septic pump out with Acme Environmental Services only takes a few minutes of your time, and our technicians work quickly and efficiently to complete your service.

New Year’s Resolutions You Can Keep

While you should have your septic system inspected by a professional once every three years and pumped out every three to five years, there are a number of other things you can do to keep your system functioning.

Don’t Use Your Toilet As A Trash Can

To maintain a healthy plumbing system and prevent clogs, it’s crucial to remember that only human waste and toilet paper should be flushed down the toilet. Avoid flushing the following items:

  • Household chemicals like paint, antifreeze, and cleaning products
  • Medications
  • Coffee grounds
  • Dental floss
  • Diapers
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Baby wipes, wet wipes, or paper towels
  • Cooking oils or grease
  • Cat litter

Remember Your Shower And Sink

While we often focus on our toilets, it’s important to remember that wastewater from sinks and showers also flows into the septic tank. Therefore, it’s crucial to avoid pouring chemicals, cleaners, grease, fats, or similar liquids down these drains. If you encounter a clog, it’s recommended to first attempt clearing it with boiling water or a drain snake before resorting to chemical drain openers. By following these practices, you can help maintain a healthy septic system and prevent potential issues.
