Septic System Health

Homeowners outside city limits (and possibly outside the limits of a water and sewer district) need to be ever attentive to the waste discharged from the sinks, toilets, washing machines, etc. in their homes.  If a septic system is properly installed on their property, the waste disposal system is safe and effective; (and at the same time assures a homeowner that sewage waste and other byproducts are not polluting our waterways).   If, however, drains become sluggish and/or odorous, or the ground surrounding the septic tank is mushy, or the grass is greener in the septic tank area, the septic tank might need to be pumped.
