Letting certain items be flushed down the toilet or poured out in the sink may be fine when you are hooked up to the city sewer, but they can be a big problem for homeowners with a septic tank. The team at Mid Florida Septic Services wants to make sure you do not let the following items into your system:
Food Items – There are lots of food items you do not want in your septic system. These items include coffee grounds, grease from your cooking, and eggshells. This waste will not be broken down properly and can cause significant issues if they get stuck in the pipes or drain field.
Disposable Personal Care Items – Sanitary napkins, tampons, diapers, and wipes may say that they are disposable, but they are never safe for your septic system. In fact, these products are bad for all systems and are causing dramatic backups in city sewers all over the world. Put a discrete trashcan in your bathroom and make sure that people know they cannot flush these items.
Hazardous Chemicals – Whether you are doing some deep cleaning or are just trying to get rid of old fuel and oil you found in the garage, you never want to let any hazardous chemicals get into your system.
