Septic systems can fail as a result of neglect or misuse. Here are some of the most common causes of septic failures: 

  • Improper Placement (Areas of Poor Drainage)

  • Improper Installation (Not up to Septic Codes)

  • Overloading — Using the System Too Much at Peak Intervals

  • Putting Kitchen Grease Down the Drain

  • Flushing Inorganic Matter (Cigarette Butts, Sanitary Napkins, Baby Wipes, etc.)

  • Garbage Disposals — Ground-Up Foods Undigested by Humans are Rough on Septic Systems

  • Water Softeners — Salts and Chemicals Damage Septic Tanks; Dispose into Separate Disposal Area

  • Not Pumping the Tank — A Neglected Septic System Will Fail

  • Tree Roots — Tree Roots Can Clog Pipes

So long as a septic system is installed properly and maintained by a professional, it should not fail. Although it is widely recommended that every septic system should be pumped every two to four years, we recommend asking our team what your ideal pumping schedule should be.
