Dos and Don'ts for Your Septic System

If you’re one of the many homeowners in the Sacramento area with a septic tank, then you know how important proper system maintenance is to preventing damage. If you notice any signs of problems in your system, call a plumber for septic service as soon as possible, before a small issue turns into a major disaster. Keeps these dos and don’ts in mind as well to keep your system in top condition.

Do Know Where Your Septic Tank Is Located

The first step in proper septic system maintenance is actually knowing where your tank is located. Many homeowners find this out the hard way, when something goes wrong with their system. Keep a map of your septic system on hand that you can reference as needed when you have a problem with your tank or when your plumber needs to perform services on your system.

Don’t Create Obstructions for Your System

It’s essential for water to flow freely through your septic system, without any obstructions or pressure on the lines. Avoid planting any kind of trees or shrubbery near the system, as the roots can grow into the lines and cause damage. Likewise, avoid building anything on top of the drain field. Doing so can put pressure on the system and prevent the free flow of water.

Do Think Before You Flush

Inorganic material has no place in your septic system. Never flush paper towels, diapers, or anything other than organic waste and toilet paper designed to break down in the system. If you have a garbage disposal, be vigilant about keeping grease, oils, coffee grounds, and other material that is prone to causing drain clogs out of the system.

If you do experience a problem with your septic system, Ace Plumbing can use video inspection to locate the issue without digging up your yard. When you need septic service in Sacramento, call us at (916) 455-4548 to make an appointment with a plumber for repairs.

New Trends in Toilet Technology

When you think of new technology, you might not immediately think of your toilet. However, the tech revolution has definitely reached into the bathroom and has turned the features of the standard toilet upside-down. With the help of your plumber, you can upgrade your bathroom tech and invest in a toilet with new, technologically advanced features. Here are some of the new design perks you can embrace.

Lighting

When you get up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, switching on the overhead bathroom light is jarring and makes you feel fully awake, which can then make it hard to fall back to sleep. However, the dark is usually not an option. Now, however, you can get a toilet that has LED lighting integrated into the seat, so you can see where you’re going at night without the need for bright, overhead lights. The LED lighting incorporated into toilet design is often blue, so it is bright enough to provide sufficient illumination without triggering you to become more awake.

Heated Seats

If you live in a cold climate, a freezing toilet seat is something you’ve likely come to dread. Much like your car, however, you can now use a seat heater to warm up the toilet to a more comfortable temperature. Most heaters work with the simple press of a button, but they do need to be attached to an electrical outlet, so they will only work in bathrooms that have an outlet within easy reach of the toilet.

Self-Cleaning Bowls

Although technology hasn’t yet reached the point at which toilets can completely clean themselves, there are toilets that have self-cleaning functions in the bowls. Many pre-spray the bowl before it used so that is stays cleaner for longer. Some bowls are also deodorized now with carbon filters to reduce unpleasant smells.

Are you ready to upgrade your toilet technology? Let the plumbers at Ace Plumbing help you choose and install the best toilet for your home. For help with your plumbing in Sacramento, call (916) 455-4548.
