You can save significant time and money with the proper care and attention paid to your system. For example, you should protect your cesspool from rainwater runoff in and around the area, as this may overflow your cesspool and back up into your sinks and showers. You should also avoid dumping greasy, non-biodegradable liquids down your drain, like industrial cleaners and disinfectants.
Here a few septic tank and cesspool maintenance tips:
- Maintain treatment and pump-out schedules
- Remove cars or other structures from the area
- Rotate the house gutters away from the area
- Pump your septic tank of solid build-up every 2-3 years
