Performing routine septic system maintenance goes a long way in preventing premature septic system failure. Homeowners across New Hampshire have regularly come to Felix Septic Service because we take septic care very seriously while making it as easy as possible. As a homeowner, it’s important to understand the simple steps you can take in keeping your septic maintenance up to date.
What can’t be flushed down your toilet? Flushing foreign objects such as dental floss, tampons, paper towels, coffee grinds, cigarette butts and condoms will eventually cause issues for your system. Though this list isn’t comprehensive, it should give you the hint that nothing but your personal waste and the toilet paper should be flushed! Chemicals that are not toilet-safe also fall into this category. Poisonous chemicals (except for toilet cleaners) should never be flushed down.
Your septic system is not a trash can and the consequences are costly if you treat it like one. Septic system maintenance doesn’t begin with our service team — it starts with you, the homeowner. Regular pumping should be the only other concern, which we can take care of under an automated schedule so you don’t have to worry. Practicing good septic maintenance habits will pay dividends down the road in saving you time and money.
