Learn tips for good septic maintenance care

For septic maintenance, Correll's Septic Service recommends installing a protective hard cover on top of your septic tank. It also helps to refrain from digging around and packing in soil over septic tanks or drain fields. Also, heavy garbage disposal use can increase solids in a septic tank and cause you to pump too frequently.

A septic system's absorption area treats wastewater and the septic tank is where water is stored after draining from the house. There it separates to oils on top, wastewater in the middle, or solids at the bottom. It exits through baffles that remove scum into gravel trenches called drain fields.
