In addition to your maintenance plan, take care of your septic system by using septic safe detergents, and avoid flushing cigarette butts and other items that do not break down. Never drive heavy equipment over the septic tank or lateral field, as they can cause damage to the system. Do not use chemical additives or add bacterial products to your system unless advised by a professional. They can disrupt the natural decomposition process.
