How to Care for a Septic Tank System

To help keep your septic tank system running efficiently there are a few things you can do to help prolong its life. 

The soakaway is a vital component and key to a trouble free system and reducing your water consumption will really make a big difference.

Ensuring that rainwater is diverted away from the soakaway will help with septic effluent absorption. A saturated soakaway can't absorb enough septic effluent.

If you have any leaking taps or toilets get these repaired and also consider having aerators fitted on taps to help lower water consumption.  

If you have a dishwasher, ensuring you only operate once full will reduce the amount of water you use as it will need to be operated less.
