There are ways to prevent septic tank freezing during winter. It is important to make sure that the septic tank is wrapped with heating tape. If a septic tank is not buried deep in the soil it is expected to freeze during very cold and freezing weather. It will be a good idea to wrap insulators, straw, leaves, soil, a blanket, or cover around the septic system to prevent it from freezing. Another way to to make sure that there is sufficient water in the septic tank to prevent it from freezing and potentially cracking the septic tank. One way to do this is to use the septic system on a daily basis.

Meanwhile, septic tank seepage can also be avoided by doing a number of things. If the seepage is through the drain-field, it is important to make sure that the lid of the septic tank will not come loose. This lid can help in preventing septic seepage by preventing rain and other contaminants to get into the system. However, if the seepage is through the septic tank lid, the septic tank will have to be replaced to get rid of seepage. If the seepage is through the toilet or through a crack in the septic tank, this will require the services of a professional to get it fixed.

During winter, there is also a tendency to have an overburdened septic system. This is because families tend to have visitors during the holiday season. One way to avoid this is to spread out food preparation activities across a number of days. It is also a good idea to inform visitors regarding those things that should not be flushed down the toilet that can be bad for the septic system.
