Disposable Materials Not Suitable for Septic Systems

You can keep your septic tank in good working order by avoiding putting certain products into the system. Many products fill the tank with solid material, which will decrease the efficiency of your septic system and many become solid in the system, or on its way into the system, and can block the passageway.
