Maintenance – Suffolk County, NY
We offer a wide array of treatment options to make sure your septic system, drain or cesspool is working properly. In addition as a homeowner here is what you can do to make sure your system is working as designed and minimize on pump outs.
- Make sure there is no leaks on any faucets, sinks, tubs or hoses.
- Do not flush anything other than septic safe toilet tissue. Even though a product says its “flushable” doesn’t mean that its safe for your septic system. This includes baby wipes, training wipes, Cottonelle, tampons, Q-Tips, and condoms.
- Every 5-7 years your septic system/cesspool needs to be pumped and have the solid waste removed to allow for proper drainage. Not doing could allow for solid waste to enter the overflow tank which is a more costly repair.
- Use chlorine bleach sparingly. Chlorine bleach kills the bacteria that breaks down the waste found in the septic system
