Checkered Flag Plumbing® Now Offers 5 New Solutions on Septic System Health in Simi Valley, CA

Simi Valley, CA (PRWEB) August 30, 2013

Checkered Flag Plumbing® is giving property owners the ability to keep their septic systems healthy with five new tips associated with septic tanks in Simi Valley, CA. These new tips are formed around maintenance, trouble spotting and preventative care. Furthermore, they are easy to implement, requiring little effort on the part of property owners, but can save owners money and time in unnecessary repairs and damages.

Many people do not think about their septic systems, but these systems are an important component of a home’s overall health. By taking the time to understand their septic system and learning what they can do to keep that system running correctly, property owners can keep the system running smoothly and their neighborhood free of harmful bacteria and disease.

Septic System Tips:

1. Monitor the drain field – The drain field consists of soil, gravel, perforated pipes and top back-fill. These work to filter out the harmful elements in the water that is released from the septic tank. Therefore, it is important to regularly inspect the drain field area for any signs of odor, wet spots or standing liquid – this could be a sign that the system has a serious problem.

2. Regular inspections and tank pumping – Yearly inspections of the septic system will reveal if there are any small issues that need to be addressed before they become bigger and expensive problems.

3. Watch what is being put into the system – The bacteria in the septic tank is limited in what it will be able to break down so property owners should avoid putting items such as grease, coffee grinds, cigarettes, cat litter and paper into their system. These items can clog the system, requiring professional septic tank cleaning.

4. Harsh chemicals cause damage – A septic tank relies on the bacteria inside it to break down waste but this bacteria can be destroyed by harsh chemicals and cleaners such as bleach, drain cleaners, paint thinner, oil and pesticides. These chemicals should be disposed of in a different manner to avoid permanently damaging the system.

5. Keep trees and buildings away from drain field – Trees have extensive roots and therefore they should be kept 100 feet away from the drain field. The best cover for a drain field is a lawn; any type of platform or structure should also be kept away.
