Number 3. Sparingly use water – in common house, average water consumption by an individual in the house is roughly 70 gallons a day. The water wastage a day can easily reach to 200 gallons if there’s even just one leak in the toilet. What seems to be the problem here is, the water will end up in the septic system so if you are going to use water sparingly, you will have lesser problems that are associated with the septic system. Number 4. Dispose of water – you may either grind it in special garbage disposal or flush it down the toilet. To make it simple, everything is stuck in the septic system. The fact is that, what goes in the drainage creates effect on the septic system. Number 5. Toilets aren’t dust bins – never treat your septic system like a trash can. There is a general rule you must take into mind and it isn’t to let anything do down in your toilet. Never ever flush stuff such as oil or cooking grease, photographic solution, condoms, diapers, flushable wipes, cigarette butts, paper towels and coffee grounds. Number 6. Maintain your drain field – the drain field is part of septic system and it is removing big amount of contaminants that’s getting out of the septic tank.
