Septic Sense Week: Day 1

During Septic Sense Week, OOWA will be posting tips and guidance on our social media platfoms to help homeowners manage theirs systems effectively. Here’s the message from today’s posting:

Your septic system is a biological system!
Aerobic bacteria in your septic tank breakdown solids and pre-treats the effluent.

Do: Flush pee, poop & paper (TP)

Don’t: Flush fats/oils/greases, anti-bacterial products or harsh cleaning chemicals that kill your tank’s essential bacteria and impedes your system’s performance.
