A few tips to ensure the proper functioning of your septic system:

  • Roof drains must not be discharged into the system and surface waters must not drain towards the leaching bed.
  • Non-biodegradable products may cause problems in the long term.
  • The tank should be pumped out when necessary. Depending on the number of people living in the house, the following time intervals are suggested between cleanings:
    • 1 to 2 people: 5-6 years
    • 2 to 4 people: 3-4 years
    • 4 to 6 people: 2 years
  • No vehicle, including snowmobiles and four wheelers, should be allowed over the system.
  • No shrubs or trees should be planted over the leaching bed. Good ventilation and adequate sunlight must be maintained.
  • Holding tanks hold the sewage until it can be pumped out. They must be equipped with a visual or audible alarm system (preferably both) which is set to trigger with sufficient capacity left in the tank until the pump out truck arrives.
