Answer: Septic systems, which are now being referred to as onsite wastewater disposal systems, are an important utility for your Florida home. To keep them working properly, they do require maintenance. Yes we know talking about your septic system isn’t as exciting as talking about your new car or HDTV, but when it stops working life can get pretty exciting.

Guests have just arrived and the toilets won’t flush! Johnny, your golden lab, rolls in the smelly puddle in the back yard! Neighbor Tim complains about smelly water leaking onto his lawn! You get the picture. It’s not a pretty one!

It is not our intention to scare you, but a little education may help you avoid embarrassing situations like these and greatly increase the life of your septic system.

You’re not alone . . . About 25% of all homes in the U.S use some type of onsite wastewater system to treat and dispose of their wastewater. Most home owners, like yourself, know that septic systems require some maintenance, but maybe you don’t know what that involves.

Many homeowners ask these common questions: How often should a septic tank be pumped? What can go wrong if I don’t pump my tank? What should not go down the drains? What do I need to know about building a new home with an onsite wastewater system?
