Do Just One Thing
If your home has its own private septic tank, you can help increase its life span by taking a few simple measures inside the home. Never flush pharmaceuticals down the toilet, and never pour flammable or toxic products (like chlorine bleach and fertilizers) or chemical cleaning products like rug cleaners and floor waxes down the drain. Also, be aware of the types of body washes and body oils you use in the shower and bath; excessive amounts can discourage the growth of natural microorganisms that are vital for breaking down organic matter in your septic tank.
