Did You Know

Did You Know that if you are on a septic system or “septic tank,” you need to be extra careful with what you put down your drains? For example, bleach is the #1 killer of good bacteria working in your septic tank. You should have your tank pumped every 3 to 5 years and use good quality enzyme/bacteria in your tank. This is the best way to keep 90% of harmful sludge out of your leach field and to save on costly repairs and replacements. Ask your service tech for a brochure on the enzymes Countryside Service Inc carries.
