Commonwealth Waste Solutions Reminds Chesterfield Residents About Summer Septic Maintenance

Commonwealth Waste Solutions, based in Chesterfield, Virginia, wants to remind residents of Chesterfield regarding some best practices that will keep their septic tanks in the best possible condition with maximum functionality during the summer. During the summer season, people tend to spend more time at home, thus, parents will need to remind their children not to flush certain items down the toilet, such as floss, paper towels, and tampons. Such items could clog up the piping that might need an expensive repair.

Also, people tend to use up more water during the summer because they want to take a shower more frequently and this can cause too much stress on the septic equipment. It may help to encourage people to take shorter showers, turn off faucets when not in use, and restrict laundry to only full loads. Commonwealth Waste Solutions provides septic services in Chesterfield County and other nearby areas for those who have problems with their septic system. More about this can be gleaned at

Jason Muzzy, founder and owner of Commonwealth Waste Solutions, says, “It’s summer once again and it may be a good idea to adopt certain best practices to keep your septic tanks in the best possible condition so that they can offer maximum functionality. For instance, please be reminded that there are certain items that should not be flushed down the toilet because these things can get the sewer pipe clogged. These include tampons, paper towels, floss, wet wipes, and more. Furthermore, we tend to use much more water during the summer because we take more showers to beat the heat. However, too much water getting into the septic system can overtax the septic equipment, eventually leading to its failure.”

He continues, “Routine maintenance is essential your septic system. A well maintained system will provide a safe and lawful means of waste disposal for your home's plumbing system. Proper maintenance will also be responsible for a healthy and operational system for many years.
