Easy Ways to Reduce Your Home's Water Consumption and Ease Septic System Strain

Regular septic tank system maintenance, along with the proper use of your septic tank system, will help assure that your septic tank system is functioning correctly. Using water efficiently is part of proper use and maintenance of your septic system, as conserving water can help extend the life of your septic system by reducing soil saturation. Read on for tips on how to conserve water without disturbing your day-to-day routine.

  • Run your clothes washer and dishwasher only when they are full.
  • Adjust sprinklers to make sure only your lawn is watered; not your sidewalk, house, or driveway.
  • Check both indoor and outdoor faucets, as well as sprinklers and hoses for any leaks and repair as necessary.
  • Upgrade older toilets, showerheads, and appliances with energy efficient models.
  • Use one drinking glass per day, which will cut down on the number of glasses to wash.
  • Instead of using running water to thaw food, defrost frozen food in the refrigerator.
  • Turn off the water while brushing your teeth and shaving.
