Septic Care
Even the best septic system needs to be maintained.  Please call Acorn
Onsite, Inc. to speak to an Engineer about proper care.

Pumping
The usage and sizing of the septic tank will dictate the pumping interval.
Generally a residential septic tank should be pumped every 3 to 5 years.
To Have Optimal Performance Follow These Guidelines:
Keep vehicles away from the system, DO NOT drive over tank or leach
field.

Do not plant trees or shrubs near drain fields, roots will eventually clog
the lines.

Dispose of household chemicals properly. Do not pour them down the
drain.

Distribute laundry throughout the week to avoid overloading on one day.

Do not use the toilet as a trash can.  Flush only toilet paper and waste
down.

Monitor your tank yearly and have it pumped every 3 to 5 years.

Outlet Filters:
If installed, outlet filters should be cleaned yearly, simply hose off the
built up solids.  If an outlet filter is not installed please ask about the
benefits the next time the tank is pumped. If the filter has been damaged
or questions arise please call Acorn Onsite, Inc at (925) 447-5200.
