The summer season means more people spending more time in the house as summer holidays are around the corner. As such, the septic system of a house will be under more pressure to keep up with the extra use. Fortunately, Commonwealth Waste Solutions is sharing a few useful tips for preparing for the summer.

Their first tip is to clear out the septic area. The septic drain field allows pre-treated water from the septic tank to discharge and filter through the soil. If the drain field is covered in excess, standing water, it will not be able to carry out its proper functions and can potentially cause a backup in the septic tank. The company also recommends not using the area for parking guest cars, riding dirt bikes or go-carts or hosting water activities. One should also not drain above-ground pools near it. The whole area around the drain field and septic tank should be kept free of traffic to avoid damaging any parts. Learn more here:

The second tip is to not plant in the septic area. Plants with fast-growing roots will seek out water sources to sustain their growth, and this can include septic tanks, drain fields, and septic lines. Once the roots of a plant take hold, they can potentially damage the septic system. Commonwealth Waste Solutions recommends doing a little bit of research before planting to see how much room the roots will need to grow long-term.

Another tip is to pace out heavy septic use. In order to help ease the amount of water the septic system is handling at any one time, the company recommends that residents should try to space out when they are doing water-heavy activities. For instance, tasks such as doing the laundry should be completed a few days before holding a party. A homeowner will want to conserve water and prevent overloading the septic system as this may lead to septic system failure. This will in turn cause additional problems with a property’s leach field, which would require expensive repairs.

The final tip from Commonwealth Waste Solutions is to schedule routine maintenance. If a property’s septic tank has not been inspected or pumped in the last two or three years, it may be time to get this task done. Regular maintenance helps prevent wear and tear and can identify potential weaknesses in the septic system before it becomes a time-consuming and costly issue. Learn more here:
