How to Unblock Clogged Lines
Your septic system’s lines aren’t draining as they should. Your toilets aren’t flushing as they should. Your sink drains may be slowly draining or not draining at all. It can be a real headache. You may even need to call in a septic service to help you get everything flowing again. However, there is something that you can do before calling in the cavalry.
Bacterial Septic Treatment
Your first instinct to clear the line may be to go to chemical drain cleaners, but this can do more damage to your septic system than the initial problem. Rather than turning to chemicals, turn to nature. Get a bacterial septic treatment to add to your system, and carefully follow the directions. These bacteria eat away at the things that can be gumming up your lines. This cleaning process may take a few days to even a few weeks in systems that are poorly maintained, but this often is the magic bullet for your clog.
Once you’ve conquered your clogged drains, you need to try to make sure that this doesn’t happen again. To do that, you’ll need to be careful with what goes into your septic lines. In a perfect world, only water and waste products should be flushed or go down the drain. When in doubt, throw the item in the garbage can instead. Your lines will thank you.
