How to Protect Your Septic Tanks

 

If you have a garbage disposal, you should know that improper use may cause harm to your septic system. In today’s article, we will give you some helpful tips on how to prevent damage to your septic tanks.

 

– Make use of your disposal regularly. If you don’t, you will end up with rust and corrosion.

 

– When you grind food, make sure you use cold water. It will make grease and oils to solidify. This way they can be chopped easily by the garbage disposal.

 

– After you wash dishes, pour some dish soap into the disposal. Let cold water run through it for about a minute or two.

 

– Don’t forget to grind hard items every now and then. This way you will create a scouring action that will clean up the garbage disposal’s walls.
