HOW MANY LOADS OF LAUNDRY DO YOU DO A DAY?
Did you know that it is recommended to not do more than 3 loads a day if you are on a septic tank? Otherwise you could cause hydraulic overloading. Hydraulic overloading occurs when the incoming wastewater flow rate exceeds the system's designed flow rate. When this happens, the system can not treat the wastewater effectively. This can also happen when several showers or baths are taken back to back.
WHERE IS YOUR SEPTIC TANK AND LEACH FIELD LOCATED?
Before building or doing any major landscaping, be sure you know where your septic tank and leach field are located. When pumping or servicing your septic, your septic tank has to be accessible.

Concrete patios get broken when they are over septic tanks and it is time to pump. Plan before pouring concrete.
