New Year’s Resolutions for Your Septic Tank: A Guide by Shadai SA

Hello, 2024! The start of a new year is often filled with resolutions related to your health, family, or finances. In your dreaming and planning, don’t forget a lesser-thought-of component of your home – your septic tank.

A well-maintained septic system contributes to a happy, healthy home, making sure that your waste is disposed of safely and efficiently. Here are some of our recommended septic tank “resolutions’ to bear in mind in 2024 (and tips for when it is time to call a septic tank drainage company)

#1 Conserve Water

Did you know that conserving water is not only beneficial for the environment but also for the health of your septic tank? The more water you use in your home, the harder your septic system has to work. Make efforts to conserve water by implementing water-saving practices such as staggering laundry loads, running the dishwasher only when full, and promptly fixing leaky faucets and toilets.

#2 Get Your Tank Pumped

Learn the Warning Signs:

Does your septic tank require attention?

Start the year with an understanding of the warning signs that indicate your septic system needs attention. These signs may include the following:  

  • Slow Draining

Sluggish drains can indicate a pipe blockage (calling for a plumber); however, they can also act as a warning sign of sludge build-up in your tank, and as a result, wastewater from your sinks and appliances will drain very slowly.

  • Sewage Odors

This one is quite difficult to miss… if your septic tank is full, gases will have nowhere to flow but up through your drains into your bathrooms and kitchens. If this is the case, call our team at Shadai SA immediately to get rid of the smell situation…

  • Moisture in Lawn

Is the grass directly above your septic tank looking unusually green and lush? It could indicate extra nutrients in the soil from escaping wastewater.

These are a few signs that your septic tank requires attention. By recognising these signs early, you can address issues before they escalate, preventing damage to your entire septic system.

#5 Consider a Maintenance Plan

Do you call in the professionals only when you’re experiencing any of the signs mentioned above? In 2024, make it your mission to establish a plan that includes regular cleanings and inspections. This way, you can monitor your system condition as it ages, allowing you to detect minor issues before they become a problem.
