Septic System Do’s & Don’ts Must read "Garbage disposals are not a good thing to have along with a septic system. Chopped up food particles from the garbage disposal make their way into the tank and do not completely biodegrade before they can get out into your leach field lines. These lines can then become clogged with food and cause a back-up....Filters are placed on the outlet line of your septic tank and keep the hair, grit, grime, food particles etc... from ...causing issues."
Septic Tank Tip An inexpensive way to keep your septic system working properly, is to take one packet of dry yeast and a box of brown sugar and pour this down your toilet about every 3-4 months. I learned about this many years ago, and during the 12 years I’d been doing this, I never had a problem with the septic system. Seems the yeast and brown sugar put beneficial bacteria back into your system, that may have been diminished through the use of chemical cleaners & etc.
