Your body requires food to use as fuel each day. Food provides your body with energy and nutrients to thrive. Without adequate nutrition, your body will weaken, and all systems will begin to shut down. This is the typical reason fad diets do not work – they deplete the body of certain nutrients (carbs, for example), and the body must begin to change to make up for the deficit. However, once carbs are introduced back into a person’s diet, the body must change again to accommodate these added nutrients. The best “diet” is a diet of moderation.
You may be wondering what diet has to do with your septic system, but understanding how your system works will clarify this.
It is easy to take your septic system for granted, yet you rely on it every day. Unless something goes wrong, you probably don’t think about it very often. However, your septic tank needs regular attention to avoid catastrophic issues that can cost up upwards of $13,000 or more.
Septic tanks function by bringing wastewater from your house down into a buried tank in your yard. Within the tank, bacteria live and thrive by dissolving and consuming waste. It is recommended that you have your septic tank pumped every three years, but there is something you need to do on a regular basis to keep your system healthy and working at its highest performance.
It is essential to give your septic system a boost to help the bacteria inside the tank continue to effectively break down the waste that is emptied into the tank. A monthly dose of septic tank treatment can help keep your tank working efficiently and lengthen the life of your septic system. This is your system’s required diet.
