Septic Tip: Stop the Leaks

Just wanted to send out a friendly reminder to check your toilet flapper valves.

Septic systems DO NOT benefit from excess water... so STOP the leaks.

How to check a toilet flapper valve. It is easy. When toilet tank is completely full, turn off water supply to the toilet tank (usually a small silver oval valve near floor behind toilet).

Wait. Half a day. Over night. You decide.

Next, turn water supply on by opening the silver toilet tank valve.

If you hear water filling the toilet tank, the flapper valve is leaking and you need to replace the flapper valve!
