How do I avoid having to contact my plumber if I have a septic tank system?
If you don't want to have to call your Orlando plumber, keep your septic system running smoothly. Be careful about what goes into your septic tank. This is our list of septic system “No No's”, so your Orlando plumber doesn't have to come unclog your drains:
- Sewage odors and foul smelling wet areas on your property could indicate trouble with your septic tank system. Call in the plumber to investigate whether it may be a broken pipe that needs repair or another problem.
- Don't flush anything but toilet paper down your toilet to keep your septic system running smoothly.
- Don't put high levels of chemicals down your septic tank system, such as the amount used for processing photos in a photo lab. Normal household use of chemicals is fine.
- Don't put high levels of antibiotics into your septic tank system. A high level would be the equivalent of the output of a nursing home with 50 residents. Normal household use of antibiotics is not harmful to your septic tank system.
