  • Inspect your system every 3 years and pump your tank as necessary (every 3 to 5 years).
  • Flush responsibly! Don't dispose of household hazardous waste, paper towels, kitty litter, diapers, or other sanitary items (other than toilet paper) down the sink or toilet.
  • Care for the septic system drainfield by not driving or parking vehicles on it. Plant only grass over and near the drainfield to avoid damage from tree roots.
  • Don’t flush expired or unwanted medications down the sink or toilet. You can safely dispose of medications in the prescription drop off box, located in the lobby of the Melbourne Police Department.
