Many homeowners never give their septic system a second thought unit something malfunctions and they are left without a way to drain water from their home. There are many different things that a homeowner can do and not do during the winter months to reduce their chance of having serious septic service in Arlington.
By taking a little time and effort out of their day, a family can help to save themselves a lot of money in the long run on expensive repairs to their septic system.
One of the first things that a homeowner needs to remember when trying to prep their septic system is that they do not need to add any cleaners or chemicals to keep the system from freezing over. A septic system is designed to be buried far enough down that the frost and cold cannot get in and freeze it up.
This means that no chemicals to winterize the system need to be put in as dangerous chemicals can end up causing more damage than good.
Yet another very important thing to do before the winter months hit is to learn where the holding tank and drain field of the septic system is. This will help to keep snow plows and other things that can possibly damage the system away from your tank. The more that is known about the septic system, the easier it will be to protect it from danger such as this.
