Get Ready For Winter
Get Your Septic System Ready For Winter Before It Is Too Late
You may not want to hear it, but winter is just around the corner and cooler weather is on the way. Get ready for hot chocolate, snowball fights, and lit fireplaces… Oh, and these septic maintenance tips that will make sure your home is ready for the winter season.
Fall is a good time to service your septic tank before the heavy snows hit. In the winter, it’s difficult to locate and expose the cover of your tank. Also, if you happen to need any excavation work, the ground is much harder to dig through. Go ahead and take care of this preventative measure before winter arrives.
Autumn leaves and other yardwork remnants may make their way near your septic system. It’s best to try and keep the area around your septic cover and leach field clear of leaves and other debris. This way, your septic facilities can be easily accessed during an emergency situation.
Move Heavy Equipment
When taking care of yard work or other landscaping projects, don’t forget to put heavy equipment away. Leaving a riding lawnmower or a truckload of mulch on your septic system can damage the tank and drain lines. You also don’t want to plant trees or shrubs nearby because the roots will break right through your pipes.
Whether you’re happy or sad about winter, make sure you take action and get your septic system ready. Avoid wastewater disasters and inconveniences by following our advice and taking preventative measures seriously.
