A few months ago, our family moved to a larger house on about an acre of land. With this move came more room, pets, livestock and a septic tank. I have never lived on property with a septic tank before, so the processes and the do’s and don’ts were all new to me. Like for instance, did you know that you CANNOT use any products that have bleach in them when you’re on a septic system? The bleach destroys the good bacteria that is needed in the septic system and can eat away the pipes as well. You also have to use “septic safe” toilet paper and you CANNOT flush your tampons down the toilet. Yes – that’s a whole other blog post in itself. While being on a septic system can save money on the water bill, it can also cost a LOT of money if we have to have a plumber come out to fix something.

When we first moved in (like literally the same week we moved in), our downstairs bathroom backed up and flooded. It was BAD! There was toilet water and stuff all over the downstairs bathroom floor. Thankfully we caught it fast enough before it could do any real damage. We had two different plumbers come out at different times to fix it and one was on the weekend – yuck! Talk about expensive! These plumber visits added up fast. What we ended up finding out was that it was a root ball growing in the pipe leading to the septic tank and stuff would get caught on the root ball and then the water and stuff would back out into the first thing it hit – the bottom bathroom. After taking a camera down the pipe, digging up the backyard and then replacing the pipe, it was fixed. Thank God!!!

While most homes don’t experience these kind of disasters when it comes to the septic tank, they do experience the classic hair-clogged drain. So if we can’t use bleach-based products, what can we use? In our home, we like to use the Roto-Rooter products for unclogging drains on septic systems. It’s affordable and works great!
