Proper use and maintenance of your sewer system
- Never put ‘flushable’ wipes, grease, or other damaging items in your toilet or drains. These can damage the system and lead to costly repairs. Click here to watch a video to see how flushable wipes damage wastewater treatment infrastructure.
- Leave the power to your grinder pump on year-round, even if you close-up and winterize your home. If you won’t be using it for a couple of weeks or more, purge the system by running clean water down the drain until the pump activates. Then turn the water off and allow the pump to run until it shuts off automatically.
- If there is a power outage, keep your water usage to a minimum until the power returns.
