When you buy a car, you are given an owner's manual with instructions on how to care for your car. A septic tank can cost as much or more than the car, unfortunately, nobody gives you a manual when they are installed.
Some people do not even know they have septic tanks! As a result, many septic systems fail unnecessarily.
Price for Failure is Steep
The price for failure is steep in two ways. Many people die each year from contaminated water, and failing septic systems are a major source of disease outbreaks of waterborne in the countries today.
It is listed that septic systems are the second-largest source of potential contamination of groundwater. Septic system replacement is also very expensive. Fortunately, there are some very effective, effective measures you can take to eliminate this problem.
Now for your solutions:
1. Use the washing machine filter.
Did you know that the washing machine is the main cause of septic system failure? The main cause is the fiber produced by the washing machine, which clogs the soil in drain fields.
To compound the problem, many of our garments are now manufactured with synthetic materials such as polyester and nylon. These substances are not biodegradable, and will not break down in a septic system. Instead, they accumulate and plug the ground. Once these materials enter the soil, there is no way to remove it.
2. Avoid Excessive Water Use
You can also degrade your septic system by washing a large number of clothes in a short time. In standard septic systems, solid materials settle in the tank, while the sewage flows out to the ground. So, avoid using water in excess as it can affect your septic tank.
