Why Grease is a Septic System's Worst Nightmare

Why Grease is a Septic System's Worst Nightmare

Grease may seem harmless, but it's a septic system's worst nightmare. This post explains the dangers of grease to your septic system and introduces our line of products specifically designed to combat grease and protect your system from clogs and backups. Understanding the impact of grease and taking steps to minimize its disposal into your septic system can significantly reduce the risk of problems.

The Dangers of Grease in Septic Systems

  • Clogs and Blockages: Grease solidifies as it cools, sticking to pipes and forming clogs that can lead to backups and overflows.
  • Drain Field Issues: When grease makes its way into the drain field, it can clog the soil pores, preventing proper water filtration and leading to system failure.
  • Reduced Efficiency: Grease accumulation in the tank makes it harder for the system to break down solids, reducing overall efficiency and leading to more frequent need for pumping.

How Grease Affects Septic Tank Processing

  • Slowing Down Bacterial Action: The bacteria in the septic tank break down organic matter, but grease can hinder their ability to do so effectively.
  • Layer Formation: Grease rises to the top of the septic tank, forming a layer that can prevent oxygen from reaching the water below, which is necessary for certain bacteria to function.
  • Increased Maintenance: Systems burdened by grease require more frequent maintenance, including pumping and potentially expensive repairs.

Tips for Minimizing Grease Disposal

  • Cool and Collect: Instead of washing grease down the drain, let it cool in a container and dispose of it in the trash.
  • Use Strainers: Install strainers in sinks to catch grease and food particles before they enter the septic system.
  • Proper Dishwashing: Wipe dishes with a paper towel to remove grease before washing them in the sink or dishwasher.
  • Educate Household Members: Make sure everyone in your home knows about the risks of grease in the septic system and how to dispose of it properly.
