How much time can I go without septic tank cleaning?

The answer to this question varies greatly depending on how much stress you put on your septic system. Under regular conditions, most septic systems can go 2-4 years without needing to be cleaned. However, putting certain things into your wastewater system can drastically reduce the effectiveness of your septic tank, and make it so you will require cleaning and treatment much more often, sometimes even as often as every year.

What can I put down the drain?

Your septic tank contains millions of bacteria that exist to break down waste and other materials so that your wastewater becomes less toxic. Using certain soaps, oils, or drain chemicals can upset the balance of bacteria in your septic tank resulting in quicker build-up of waste. In addition, cooking grease or oils can cause blockage, as they harden when existing in cool temperatures, causing much more strain on your septic system. Other non-biodegradable materials such as towelettes or wipes (even ones that claim to be safe for toilets) will accumulate in your waste system and create blockages over time.

Being mindful of the things that you put down your drain can help reduce the strain on your septic tank, and increase the longevity of your tank between cleanings.
