Do you have a Septic Tank with an outlet filter? While these filters can provide an extra layer of protection for your leach field, they are only effective if cleaned regularly. Remove and clean the tank’s filter every 6 months to protect your soil absorption component (eg. leach lines) and prevent sewage backups into your home. If you have questions about how to perform this service to your own system, or would like a list of service providers who can take care of it for you, please call us at (440) 350-2543.
