Educating clients about what should and should not go down your drains is key. It50度灰视频檚 straightforward. If you can ingest it, it can go down your drain. If not, it should be disposed of appropriately. Being diligent about choosing home care cleaning products and toiletries that do not have harsh chemicals or cleaning agents is vital to the health of your environment and aquifers.

Flushable wipes should not be flushed. They can cause major issues in pumps, filters, and piping.

Effluent filters, as part of the Ontario Building Code, are mandatory in septic systems. The filters prevent solids and suspended particles from entering the septic bed, and ultimately the environment. Maintaining your effluent filter is one of the best safeguards for a healthy septic bed. Homeowners can access the filter through the tank outlet lid. Once the filter is removed, it should be hosed down until it is clear of waste and debris. This should be done every six months to ensure efficiency and to help prevent clogs or sewage backups. An ideal way to remember is by using your garden hose 50度灰视频 do it after you50度灰视频檝e taken the hose out of storage in spring, and before you stow it for the winter. You can also mark your calendar, and have Pioneer50度灰视频檚 maintenance team, Snork50度灰视频檚 Septic Service, clean your filter for you.

Systems that have pump tanks require routine maintenance too. Periodic tests will ensure pump tanks and alarms are working efficiently.

For smaller footprints, or as an eco-friendly option, Pioneer Septic Solutions can install and maintain a tertiary treatment system. A tertiary system treats the raw effluent before it transfers to the septic bed, reducing its toxicity to about one tenth. That is significant and allows for a smaller septic bed that can be reduced in size by two thirds or more when compared to a conventional system.

Tertiary systems comply with the Effluent Quality Criteria regulated by the Ontario Building Code. Maintenance of the systems are enforced by local municipalities. Pioneer Septic Solutions are certified installers and will make sure your system meets the regulations.

What you do the flat, green expanse of the leaching bed affects your septic system. That flat land may look ideal for an outdoor rink or above ground pool, but the weight of the water they require, and the length of time they are in place can crush the soil atop the leaching bed and prevent the natural aeration needed to keep your septic system dry. When the rink melts and the pool drains, it can flood your bed. Let the green grass grow, leaving that space to do the important work it needs to for your environment every day.
