How Do I Start the Process of Getting a Septic System?

The first step in Louisiana is to go to the Environmental Health agency for your parish and apply for a permit. The parish sanitarian will visit the site and determine what type of system is needed for the site, including size. You will then be issued a permit for the septic system that includes all of the information we need to evaluate the site. We will then set the price for your septic system and schedule the installation.

Are There Steps I Can Take to Keep My Septic System Working Properly?

Yes, there are things you can do to minimize the wear on your septic system. Grease and bleach are two things you should aim to keep out of your system. Frequent and heavy use of bleach and household cleaners will kill the bacteria needed for them to work properly. You will notice more of a problem with odor if the bacteria balance is thrown off. For the ATU, keeping a regular pump-out schedule will help the system work most efficiently. Some products are marketed for septic system health. Be sure to use them in septic systems only and NOT ATUs. Those products are the wrong kind of additives for ATU and will only increase the frequency for pump-outs in ATUs.

Grease and oils can wreak havoc on septic systems if allowed to enter the system unchecked. It can accumulate on the walls of pipes and tanks causing blockages and it can disrupt bacterial life, robbing the septic tank of one of its chief functions. You may consider a grease trap to keep your septic system free of this problem.
