Septic Tank Maintenance

Septic tank emergencies are bound to happen. But with proper maintenance, your tank can stay in good condition for longer. Palmetto Septic & Utilities has some tips to help you avoid a messy situation at your home.

Get Regular Septic Tank Pumping

DHEC recommends getting your septic tank pumped every three to five years, depending on the size of your household.

Get Your Septic Tank Inspected

Not sure if your tank needs to be cleaned out? Have a septic services company come out for an inspection. An inspection will tell you if everything is working as it should and how close you are to needing your tank pumped.

Watch What You Flush

Flushing the wrong thing can cause all types of problems for your septic system. Here are a few common household items you should never flush:

  • Cigarette butts
  • Diapers
  • Medicines
  • Grease
  • Coffee grounds
  • Cat litter
