Septic Tank Maintenance and Operation in the gta

If you have your own septic system, then you are responsible for its safe operation, repair, and maintenance. Even though it is a safe and reliable way to get rid of household wastewater in an environmentally responsible way, maintenance of the septic tank is important for its proper functioning. If not, you could be posing a threat to your family’s health and the nature around you. A-1 Septic Pumping offers septic tank maintenance services in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Contact us for more information.

Clean Water Act

As responsible residents of Ontario, we need to ensure the future generation of Ontarians have safe and clean water to use. Ontario has taken steps by passing the Clean Water Act in 2006 and changing parts of the Building Code Act in 1992 to ensure septic tanks are better maintained by users.

Septic Tank Operation Tips

To keep your septic tank well maintained and functional for longer years:

  • Locate your septic tank and have it pumped every 3 to 5 years

  • No food, compost, or grease goes down the drain

  • Use as little water as possible

  • Avoid anti-bacterial soaps, bleach, or harsh chemicals

  • Avoid driving or planting over the septic tanks

  • No paints, solvents, pesticides, or toxic chemical down the drain

  • Test your wells for bacteria three times per year

  • No flushing sanitary products, baby wipes, or Q-tips

  • Regular septic tank inspections
