Flooding Can Affect Septic Systems

If you have a septic system, the drains in your home may run slowly or back up during a flood.

Pumping out the tank is a temporary solution because it will provide relief for only four or five days. Pumping also could be a costly mistake because it could cause the tank to try to float out of the ground and damage the inlet and outlet pipes.

 Here are some ways to cut water use:

  • Check faucets, showerheads, toilets, sinks and other water-using devices for leaks and repair them as soon as possible.
  • Don’t drain water from a basement sump pump into the septic system.
  • Don’t let water from roof gutters run into the drain field area.
  • Reduce the number of times you flush the toilet.
  • Reduce the number of showers or baths you take. A good rule is one bath or shower per person every other day.
  • Don’t use the dishwasher or garbage disposal.
  • Don’t do laundry. Take your dirty clothes to a commercial laundry if possible.
