Winterizing Your Septic System Before The Freeze Sets In
Homeowners start to worry when the temperature drops ... “Are there things I need to do to get my septic system ready for winter?”
If the system was installed properly and everything is in good working order there is not a lot that needs to be done before winter arrives.
But, homeowners should consider and take action as necessary.
- If there is any maintenance of the system that has been put off, now is the time to have it done.
- If the septic tank needs pumping, it should be pumped. If there is a pump station in the system, now would be the time to have the pump tank checked for any solids
- And, the floats and pump should be evaluated to ensure they are in good working order
