Septic Tank SO43

If you only just installed a septic tank, you might be wondering how it holds up during the winter. Lower temperatures during winter could cause various parts of your septic tank and system to get frozen up. The components that are most likely to be affected by cold weather are the pipes that lead from the house to the septic tank. Over time, leaky, bent or clogged water fixtures can cause low flow of water. Low flowing water is more likely to freeze up and clog up all together.

Other fixtures likely to freeze up are the septic tank itself, pipes leading to the drain field and the drain field itself. It is important to note that septic tanks that are frequently used are less susceptible to freezing. You should never try to correct a frozen septic system by yourself. Our expert at SO43 would be able to advice you better regarding the best options for you. You should never pour antifreeze agents down the septic tank. You should also avoid setting fires around the septic tank to thaw it out. It is best to take preventive steps to protect your septic system before winter. Adding mulch to the area covering the septic tank would provide an insulating layer.
