Septic Tanks Will Affect the Amount of Water You Can Use Every Day

When you live in a home that is connected directly to a city sewer, you can pretty much use as much water as you want to.

While it's obviously not advisable to do it, you could leave a sink running all day long without facing any real consequences, outside of running your water bill up.

That is not the case for those who have had septic tank installation done.

Each septic tank is capable of holding a certain amount of water, and you will have to avoid flooding your tank with water which saturates the septic field by limiting the amount of water you use on a daily basis.

You can cut down on your water use by:

Installing water-saving toilets
Taking shorter showers
Running smaller loads of laundry (some washing machines can use up to 45 gallons of water for a single load!)
Turning the water off when you brush your teeth
Dumping water used for cooking purposes outside rather than down the drain
While smaller families shouldn't have much trouble limiting their water usage, it can be challenging for those with big families to do it.

You will need to take stock of how much water you're using and adjust accordingly following septic tank installation to avoid running into problems.
