men and women worry so much about harming their septic tank that they
go to great lengths not to cause problems. In reality, this equipment
and the bacteria inside of it is not as delicate as some individuals
have been led to believe. Nevertheless, following certain guidelines
will keep the tank functioning better and prevent any need for
tank pumping in Plant City.
common misconception is that bleach should never be used in the
laundry with a septic system. Actually, a small amount of bleach
added to a full load of wash now and then will not harm bacteria in
the tank. The same goes for a minimal amount of commercial toilet
cleaner used every week or two.
said, household residents still should use these chemicals sparingly.
For example, a toilet cleaning product inserted in the tank releases
chemicals each time someone flushes. That can send too much bleach or
another bacteria-killing chemical into the tank and deplete the
population. In addition, households with septic tanks also should not
use clog-busting chemicals in drains.
septic tank pumping should be done as recommended. If the technicians
see any problems when they lift the lid, they’ll let the customer
know. One problem might be a tank that’s becoming too full, which can
indicate a need for more frequent pumping. Another might be tampons
floating on the surface; septic tanks are not intended to manage
feminine hygiene products. Those should be thrown in the trash.
