Is there anything else I can do to prolong the life of my septic system?

Yes. Install an effluent filter on the outlet baffle of your septic tank.  A quality filter will increase the efficiency of your septic tank by 40%. Septic tank effluent filters provide a relatively inexpensive means of preventing solids discharge. They are usually installed at the outlet of the septic tank, collecting solids that may be discharged from the tank. Generally this filter needs to be cleaned once a year.  Sometimes it needs to be cleaned more often.  It's easy to clean.  You can do it yourself or we can clean it for you.
