Septic Systems (septic tank and tile bed)

Ensure that you:

  • Advise immediately of leaky faucets and malfunctioning toilet.
  • Limit the use of drain cleaners and disinfectants.
  • We recommend that you use organic household cleaners like baking soda and vinegar.
  • Keep vehicles and heavy objects off the tile beds.
  • Do not allow the following items to get into your septic tank: Grease, fats, coffee grounds, cigarette butts, diapers, paper towels, coloured or heavy pile toilet paper and feminine products. A general rule of thumb is – if it does not break down naturally, then do not flush it into the septic tank.
