Septic System Guidelines

There are ways to keep private septic systems from getting damaged. Mostly older houses have private septic systems and not public sewer systems. The way to find out if your house has a septic tank is to ask the owner if you are a renter; and ask the previous owner if you are the current owner paying mortgage.

Prevent septic tank 'back ups' and septic tank pumping by following the tips below.


Things to do to prevent septic system damage - Do's and Don'ts

  • Do throw diapers in the trash.
  • Do throw feminine products in the trash.
  • Do use toilet paper that is "septic tank safe" such as 'Scott Toilet Tissue 1,000 Sheets.'
  • Do flush toilet when there is just only water in the toilet bowl, to keep pipelines clear and to prevent the pipelines from backing up.
  • Do flush toilet 3 times before pouring Rid-X down into the toilet.
  • Do once a month flush 1 whole container of 'Rid-X' down the toilet then flush. Best results; flush Rid-X down the toilet when everyone in the home has went to sleep at night. (Follow instruction on the product label).
  • Do flush again only water and not toilet paper, 3 times the next day; to help clear out the pipes.


Septic tank health tips

  • Don't flush massive amounts of toilet paper (dispose of it in the trash).
  • Don't flush any type of feminine products; panty liners, kotex, tampons, wrappers, or pads.
  • Don't flush any diapers, throw them in the trash.
  • Don't flush paper towels or baby wipes, put them in the trash.
  • Don't put food down the kitchen drain or garbage disposal, throw in the trash. Garbage disposal is for very small amounts of food.

In general your septic system consists of a septic tank and drain field, and in some cases a pump tank for those who cannot gravity feed to the drain field. Septic systems can last for decades, if given the proper maintenance along with some helpful tips and knowledge that all homeowners should know.

Typically, a 3 bedroom home with 2250 sq ft of living or less has a 900 gallon septic tank. The septic tank receives all the waste water from a home. This includes showers, toilets, washing machine, dishwasher and sinks. According to the American water works association, the average person uses about 70 gallons per day on average. The family of 4 would add up to 280 gallons a day. So, just imagine how fast your septic tank will fill up, and how much water must flow through the tank to make it out to the drain field.

Through consistent septic tank pumping, and by following these important tips can help avoid costly backup and also increase the life of your system.

Public Awareness


Over 200,000 Americans, and a million more world over, die each year from Sepsis. Yet, according to the poll above, 69% of participants haven't even heard the word Sepsis, let alone know what it is.

Since the number of cases have been on the rise each year, we should get familiar with this swift and silent killer!

Blood Infection, Septicaemia, Septic Shock and Blood Poisoning are the other names sepsis is known by.

  • Sepsis, (in Greek, it means putrefy or decay), is an overwhelming immune response to infection in the body.This is triggered by the invasion of microbes in the blood, lungs, urinary tract, skin or other tissues. Mostly by bacteria, but it can be parasites, fungi or viruses and other toxic pathogens.
  • Septicaemia, is the medical term used to refer to the presence of any infectious disease causing organisms in the bloodstream, this leads to Sepsis.
  • Bacteremia, is the presence of bacteria in the blood.
  • Sepsis is defined as Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (SIRS). This is an attempt by the blood circulatory system (throughout the whole body) to remove harmful stimuli.

One can get infected through a variety of entry points, from a simple scrape to a serious medical problem. Some of the serious medical problems from where sepsis can occur are :-

  • Pneumonia, this is an inflammation of the lungs that is caused by a bacteria or a virus infection.
  • The Bloodstream, parasites invade the body through improperly cooked meat or a bite from mosquitoes or other bugs or inhaled when playing in dirt where there was animal feces.
  • Urinary Tract Infection, when germs attack the system that makes urine and carries it out of your body.
  • Meningitis, this is an inflammation of the covering around the brain and spinal cord caused by viruses or bacteria.
  • Appendicitis, this is caused when the appendix gets blocked by stool, cancer or any foreign body, resulting in inflammation.

Who gets it and Where does Sepsis occur?

Sepsis does not start on it's own, it stems from other medical conditions and it can begin in different parts of the body where there is an infection or a localized infection, (my personal experience). Once you're infected and the immune system responds, this in turn causes blood clots and leaky blood vessels. Impaired blood flow causes damage to the organs, this would quickly lead to multiple organ failure and, depending on how quickly the person got medical attention, might be the cause of death or loss of a body part.

Anyone can get sepsis, especially people with a weakened immune system.

  • Newborn babies. This is called neonatal sepsis, early onset passed from the mother through the placenta or birth canal during birth and is found in babies 2 - 3 days after birth.
  • The elderly. Sepsis in elderly people can cause long term problems, physically or mentally, they can be left with memory problems. Delirium is common in severe cases of sepsis.
  • People with chronic illnesses such as Diabetes, AIDS, Cancer, etc.
  • Post surgery patients. Localized infection i.e when infected tissue stays in one area of the body.


Common places where an infection could turn into sepsis would be:-

  1. The bones. When bacteria invades the bone, it is called osteomyelitis.
  2. The liver. Infections such as hepatitis, cirrohsis, liver abscess, etc.
  3. The kidney. Pyelonephiritis is the name for kidney infections.
  4. The skin. We can get infected skin from the staphylococcus bacteria, skin lice, shingles, athletes foot, yeast infections, etc.

And for patients in the hospital, places where you can get sepsis are:-

  1. Intravenous lines.
  2. Surgical sites.
  3. Surgical drains.
  4. Implanted medical devices.
  5. And bedsores.
  6. Other skin problem areas.

Common infections where sepsis can occur are :-

  • MRSA, this is a staphyloccocus infection.
  • Malaria, is a life threatening, parasitic disease spread by mosquitoes.
  • Kidney stones form when there is dehydration in the body. As a result, not enough urine to wash out the microscopic crystals in the urine.

Sepsis can cause :-

  • Blood clots that prevents oxygen and nutrients from to vital parts of the body.
  • Low blood pressure that prevents the blood from reaching to vital parts of the body.
  • Leakage from blood vessel lining.

Symptoms and Diagnoses of Sepsis.

It is very important to know what the warning signs of Sepsis are and to be able to recognize them in order to prevent the body from going into Septic Shock. There are several types of symptoms:-

  • General symptoms.
  1. Fever.
  2. Chills.
  3. Rapid heart rate, >90 bpm
  4. Rapid breathing.
  5. Confusion.
  6. Swelling.
  7. High glucose in non-diabetics.
  8. Decreased urination.
  9. Nausea and vomiting.
  10. Diarrhea.

Some of the above symptoms are similar to other conditions, that's why sepsis is hard to diagnose in it's early stages. But a presence of all of them would tell you that it is time to get to the hospital ER.

  • A blood test will determine whether the :-
  1. White blood cell count is normal or not.
  2. White blood cells are immature.
  3. Levels of plasma C-reactive protein are high.
  4. PCT level is elevated.
  5. Levels of platelets in the blood.
  6. Levels of lactic acids in the blood.
  7. Levels of oxygen in the blood.

In addition to blood tests, an ultra sound, a CT scan and a chest X-ray will be done, the heart rate and blood pressure will be checked.

Patients with Sepsis is usually in intensive care unit (ICU). Doctors will start a treatment of :-

  1. Broad Spectrum antibiotics, to kill any bacteria.
  2. IV fluids to maintain blood pressure.
  3. Oxygen to maintain normal blood oxygen.
  4. Targeted drug use, once the culprit has been identified.
  5. If needed, surgery to drain and clean the infection.

How I learned about Sepsis.

In the year 2001, I underwent a Laparoscopic Splenectomy to get my spleen removed because of ITP. Once my doctor deemed it to be safe, I went home to recuperate and my incision was healing nicely.

A few days after I went home, I started feeling hot or cold alternately, my incision site pained, it pains for a few seconds then it goes away. I knew that something went wrong there, I visited the ER at the hospital and they couldn't find what was wrong, a CT scan couldn't detect any infection.

The following day, the after care nurse came to attend to my incision and she was concerned by what she found so she had called it in to the hospital. Something weird happened later that day, we had Chinese food for supper, and I found that when I coughed, my incision dressing becomes wet and needed changing so I went to change it, and I wasn't sure, but the gauze smelled like Chinese food.

I had to cough again, so I placed tissues over the opening, when I removed it, I saw bits of broccoli on it where the fluid had squirted.

My neighbour was a nurse, so I went across and asked her about it and she said that with a situation like that, I should go to the hospital ER right away. I wasn't too keen on going to the hospital ER for a consecutive day, so my husband and I went to see his doctor, and his doctor, sent me to the hospital and called his contacts, at the hospital, to relay the information.

He spoke very harshly to them ( he ran a family clinic at the hospital, too). Turned out, the team of young doctors didn't do a good "clean-up" job, on the inside when they removed my spleen, some blood was left and that in turn, became a localized infection that was well on it's to becoming full blown sepsis.

The ER got hold of the head of team of surgeons that did the operation and made him and his team complete the clean-up and the mess it caused. I slept through the process and when I woke up, the pain was gone and although, I was a little weak my body felt right again. My incisions healed perfectly and on time after that and I could be happy again.

Prevention of Sepsis.

There are a few steps that can be taken to prevent a sepsis infection.

  • Make sure that your vaccinations are updated.
  • Avoid using contaminated needles.
  • Follow proper hand washing procedures.
  • Thoroughly clean any open wounds and keep them free of infections.
  • Good personal hygiene practices.
  • Get your annual check-ups done regularly.
  • Treat your infections thoroughly.
  • Use proper protection or, if possible, stay away from sepsis infected sources.
  • Report any symptoms to your doctor.
  • Build up your immune system.
  • You can also schedule a blood test for sepsis screening.
  • Be informed about Sepsis.
  • Use your full dose of antibiotics, when it's prescribe for your infection.

A lot of rural homes are not linked to a mains sewer system. These houses count on a self-contained sewage treatment plant called a septic system. If you have a septic tank, or are thinking about the purchase of a house with one, there are life-saving facts you need to know about septic tanks. A sewage-disposal tank takes the sewage from your house, the solids settle out and grease drifts to the top. In between the two layers is a clear watery layer that is piped away to an absorption area where it is permitted to percolate away, through the soil. Soil germs break down any nutrients before the sewage reaches the water bearing rocks, or any streams. Septic tanks are typically buried in the ground. There are 3 main types, all of which cause various issues. Steel tanks rust, specifically when buried in the ground. A steel septic system can be so corroded that it can result in somebody walking over it falling through and into the tank. The unlucky person is suffocated by the methane generated in the tank, or drowns. Concrete tanks may be damaged internally, resulting in long-term and costly to remedy damage to the absorption drain-field. The worst tanks are those developed from concrete blocks on website. In some cases the blocks are simply laid and not sealed together. Even if they are sealed together years of attack from acidic sewage will dissolve the mortar. These tanks can collapse without warning and probably fail to fulfill regional preparation and environmental management guidelines. How do you tell if your septic system has issues? , if there are ANY locations of sunken ground around it STAY AWAY.. Hire a contractor right away. Into the septic tank and pass away if you step on these locations you could fall through. These are indications that your septic tank has partly collapsed. Check for signs of strong sewage material in the drain-field area. This can be really expensive to rectify if the drain-field has been infected because the septic tank has not been pumped out regularly. If you are buying a house with a septic tank, you must insist on the tank being drained and an examination by a sewage-disposal tank specialist carried out. It is not possible to examine a septic tank appropriately while it is complete. You may need to spend for a contractor to provide you a report, however this will be a tiny quantity compared to the expense of any required restorative work A septic tank takes the sewage from the house, the solids settle out and grease drifts to the top. Steel tanks rust, especially when buried in the ground. A steel septic tank can be so corroded that it can lead to someone walking over it falling through and into the tank. If you step on these areas you might fall through, into the septic tank and pass away. These are signs that your septic tank has actually partially collapsed.

Buying a home in Texas? This might mean that you're buying one that has a septic system. As part of the home inspection process, I always recommend that the buyers order a septic inspection from a licensed septic servicing company early in the option period of the contract.

A septic system inspection isn't inexpensive, but it can prevent future headaches. The price may be anywhere from $400 to $750 depending on the type and the size of the system. The more expensive inspection is for aerobic septic systems.

There are several types of inspections that a septic company can do. A walk-over is a very simple inspection and really doesn't tell you much. For about $250, an inspector will open many faucets in the house to flood the septic system. When the inspector is certain that the system has water flowing from through the septic tank to the drain field, he walks over the drain field to see if there is any visual evidence of sewage at the surface.

If the septic system is close enough to a body of water, an authority determined by the state may require an inspection so that the new owner can obtain a license to operate the system. A Buyer's Agent should be able to assist buyers with this in addition to the regular inspection.

Repair or replacement of a septic system can be very costly. This is exactly why I recommend that buyers order a full inspection. I would rather see them spend $500+ during the option period even if the pull the plug on the contract than $15,000+ later for repairs.
