The collection pipe from the house to the tank is the first area to inspect. First make sure there are no leaking fixtures that allow low wastewater generation. Also look for damp areas on the surface that may indicate a settled or broken pipe. The next location is the septic tank. When the septic tank freezes they need to be inspected by a licensed professional to check for structural damage. The third location is the pipe from the septic tank to the soil treatment area. This area may have frozen for the same reasons as the collection pipe and the same remedies apply. The last area is the soil treatment area. This is the mound or the trench and if not working properly will develop soggy areas on the surface. So what can the homeowner do to avoid these problems? Some very simple solutions are to allow the grass covering the system to remain a little longer in the fall of the year. Doing so will allow more snow to be trapped near the system. Covering the pipes and the septic tank with leaves or straw will also provide additional ground insulation. Most important is to perform proper maintenance of the system. Check for leaking fixtures throughout the home and make the Jim Gesswein offers necessary repairs. Have the septic tank cleaned or "pumped" as it is often referred to at least every three years, depending on the water use patterns in the home. Proper cleaning will remove all scum, sludge and liquid from the tank. For more information on the operation and maintenance of individual septic treatment systems there are a number of fact sheets and bulletins available through the local University of Minnesota Extension Service Office or by calling INFO-U at 1-800-525-8636.
